Most of you know that our beloved fabric companies provide free patterns on their web sites and/or as handouts. If you click on any of the fabric company web sites we have listed, you can see what any given company has, usually under a “Free Patterns” heading. These are great for inspiration! The projects are often quilts, but other types of projects are also included.
Robert Kaufman’s site has an adorable stuffed owl pattern by one of their new designers, Amy Schimler. You can go directly to the pattern by clicking here. We will be carrying some of Amy Schimler’s fabrics. Amy has designed fabric for the apparel industry for many well-known brands including Hanna Andersson, Baby Gap, Old Navy and Carters–just to name a few of her clients. Now we will be able to incorporate her whimsical designs into our quilting and other sewing projects. Be sure to visit her adorable owl pattern!
In other news, the talented ladies at Piece O’ Cake are now offering some of their much-loved but out of print designs for sale as PDFs on their web site. Visit the Piece O’ Cake patterns page to see some old favorites.
