Sewing Patterns

My sewing patterns are PDF-to-print, so you don’t have to pay for shipping costs, printing costs, or wait for delivery via snail mail. They will be delivered to your email address as an Adobe PDF file format. You can purchase all of them here, or you can visit one of my online shops. Check out my pattern store on Craftsy.

If you prefer a paper copy, send me an email. I would be happy to mail a printed copy of any pattern to you.

Stuff Sacks: I was inspired by the stuff sacks used by campers and backpackers to keep stuff organized in a backpack. I use my stuff sacks to carry my Canon Rebel camera, and another one to store my acrylic paints – 14 tubes. These stuff sacks are also great for gathering treasures along the trail, fallen leaves, pinecones, acorns, a piece of sea glass or a unique fossil. You could also use this for your knitting or embroidery project. The possibilities are endless!

The pattern includes instructions for three sizes, for sale for $10.00.

Yoga Matt: I was originally inspired to make my own Yoga Matt several years ago (when I first opened my Etsy shop in 2009) because I love to lay in the grass and chill out on a warm, sunny day.  I thought it would be fun to share the pattern with you so you can make your own Yoga Matt.

I also wanted to be able to take this with me to the park or the beach, so I added the straps to wrap around the rolled up matt for easy carrying.

NOTE: If you want to use this matt for doing yoga on a slippery floor, you could use a non-slip rug pad underneath it. (try the craft supply stores or a carpet store) I would cut this rug pad into smaller pieces and stitch them to the back of the yoga matt.

One of the first products I made to sell in my Etsy shop (when I first opened it in 2009) was a Checkerboard Set, and they have since all sold out.  I thought it would be fun to share the pattern for this set so you can make your own set.

When I originally came up with this idea, I wanted to take a game set with me when traveling, so I made a lined drawstring bag to carry everything in.

This pattern includes instructions for making four different projects: the game board, the lined drawstring carrying bag, the small drawstring bag to carry the checkers, and the checkers.

It’s for sale for $10.00. You may purchase it by clicking here.

Handbag Pattern: Ever go shopping for a handbag and can’t find the right size or color or style? That happens to me all the time, so I started making my own, customizing them to go with the season or the occasion. Now you can make your own too with this easy pattern!

This handbag features a zipper closure, two inside pockets, and a piping accent, giving it a professional finish. It measures approximately: 11.5 inches wide by 10.5 inches tall.

It’s for sale for $6.00. You may purchase it by clicking here.

Stuff Baskets: use these to store odds and ends, spare change, cotton balls and swabs, jewelry, office supplies, pens and pencils, and more. Features piping on the flat bottom for an added professional finish. Embellish with pretty ribbon or pom-pom fringe.

Pattern includes instructions for two sizes, a shorter style to use as a shallow tray, and a taller style to use as a pencil cup:

Small: 5 inches in diameter by 3.25 inches tall Medium: 6 inches in diameter by 6 inches tall

It’s for sale for $6.00. You may purchase it by clicking here.

Shopping Tote: We can never have enough tote bags, especially nowadays when we’re all trying to reduce the amount of plastic bags floating around in this world.

This shopping tote works great for grocery shopping or for carrying your art supplies or your library books. All sorts of possibilities! Finished tote measures approximately: 12 inches wide by 13 inches tall. This pattern is suitable for beginning sewers and can be easily made in an afternoon.

It’s for sale for $6.00. You may purchase it by clicking here.

Makeup Bags: Carry your makeup and toiletries in style! Making your own set of makeup bags would be so much cuter than those freebie plastic ones you get at the department stores when it’s bonus days.

Customize them to your own style and taste. Quilt them with random zig-zag stitching or do a diagonal grid. Embellish them with rick-rack ribbon and flower buttons. Personally, I love making these bags, so I hope you will too.

Pattern includes instructions for three sizes:

Small: 8.5 inches wide by 4.5 inches tall

Medium: 11 inches wide by 6 inches tall

Large: 11.5 inches wide by 7 inches tall

It’s for sale for $6.00. You may purchase it by clicking here.
