Here’s a FREE tutorial for an A-Line dress of any size called the Reversible Zen Dress. This dress is easy to sew and yet the finished garment looks like something that would take a lot of effort. It’s also very easy to put on the child and take off, and if she spills some sauce on one side she can just flip the dress over and put it on from the other side.

Here’s a fabulous FREE sewing pattern for a baby sleeping sack. There are many benefits of using a sleeping sack for your baby. They may prevent overheating, but also keep your baby warm at night because they can’t kick off the sleeping sack like they can kick off a blanket. Also, there is no risk of pulling it over their head, which makes it super safe for babies and parents friendly. That said, this would be the perfect gift for baby showers and new parents.
Now is your chance to make this great looking Bucket Hat for a toddler. The designer has very kindly produced an excellent sewing pattern and tutorial for FREE. The hat is reversible and the way the designer has made the brim of the hat will give you the option of having the brim up or down. We think it looks great made with two contrasting fabrics, especially with the brim turned up to reveal a splash of color or fun print.
We love this pretty dress, the fabric and the style. It can be difficult to sew clothes, we won’t deny it, because fitting can sometimes be a challenge. Especially with children – they grow so fast that if the fit was a little too snug, in no time, it will be too tight and can’t be worn again. However, a lot of these issues are not a problem with this easy dress pattern. Although it’s designed for a woven (non-stretch) fabric, it has many of the benefits of a knit dress.
Here are a FREE pattern and tutorial for the Sydney Pinafore Dress. It’s a very quick and simple dress to make and can be shortened to wear as a top, and can also be used as a top layer over a t-shirt and leggings too. Because of the loose-fitting style, you can get plenty of wear from this both in summer and winter.
This flutter sleeve sundress looks super cute and as a wonderful bonus, the designer has supplied a FREE tutorial and pattern. It’s one of the first sewing patterns the designer published years ago and it’s still one of her favorite things she has ever sewn for her daughter. If you are new to sewing clothes then this one is a nice easy dress to start with. No fiddly zippers or buttons, no difficult fitting issues, just a simple pull-over loose-fitting dress with some elastic – easy!
Sometimes it can be hard to keep the kids rooms tidy and organised. Things can end up on the floor when they need to be put safely away, or need to be on hand close to the bed. This bedside organiser helps the smaller children keep their bedtime storybook close at hand, along with a soft toy or two. If your little one is in bed sick, then they can reach over and grab a book, coloring book, toys, tissues etc without having to get out of bed. No more calls of ‘mommy’ all day and running up and down stairs!
Here are some wonderfully pretty bloomers for your baby where the designer has produced a digital sewing pattern that is FREE to download. She has actually produced two versions of the silk bloomers. There is the ruched version, which gives a cute little ruffle effect at the leg cuffs and waistband. Or the plain version, which isn’t ruffled or ruched. To make the plain version, just modify the pattern a little by cutting off the flare and make the casing on the bottom edge of the shorts instead of 1/2″ up.
There is nothing more lovely than baby˙s clothing. Those tiny, adorable pieces of clothes that keep your baby warm and cosy. Comfort is the key when it comes to newborn and toddler life, and comfortable pull-on leggings make life easier for a new parent as well. In this post, we bring you a pattern for sewing such an adorable garment: Knit baby leggings sewing pattern. The designer named them her Just Hatched Baby Leggings. These stretchy, pull-on bottoms will be the saviour of your baby`s wardrobe and you can never have too many of them. You can mix and match them with baby bodysuits and T-shirts. They will give your little one all the room they need to kick, wriggle and squirm about.
Well isn’t this dress a real beauty and after three years of selling the pattern, the designer decided to offer it for FREE. The Knot Dress was one of the very first sewing patterns that she designed and has since been revised and updated. It has no zipper or button closures, but has ties at the shoulders, back, and skirt, which makes it a super easy pattern to sew and a perfect project for a beginner sewer. Because of the ties, the fitting can be very forgiving, ideal for those who are new to sewing clothes.
Sewing clothing can be tricky, especially trying to fit on wriggly babies and children, but even the newest sewer can make a great baby hat that fits. This soft baby hat is made out of soft knit fabric and comes with a fitted top and a cuff that can be rolled up for more cuteness! The baby hat pattern can be made with an interlock knit, jersey knit, or even rib knit (although rib knit is more stretchy so you would probably want to downsize if you picked this type of fabric). This beautiful and easy baby hat pattern comes to you completely free and will sew up SO quickly.
Are you tired of choosing the right shirt for your little man? Maybe he is a fan of cars, or trains, or superheroes, and is really hard to find a shirt for that he will love to wear? Then don’t worry anymore! Here you can find a FREE sewing pattern for your little gentleman! This shirt has 6 buttons, which makes it very easy to dress and undress. You can also have a little fun with the buttons. There are lots of cute ones, with aeroplanes or teddy bears. I am sure that this little extra detail will help make this shirt extra special!
Here’s an absolutely beautiful addition to a babies wardrobe – a Felted Wool Baby Jacket (0-6 months). There is just something so rewarding to sew for babies, and this pattern is no exception.

The shape of the jacket simple and chic with no collar or fussy sleeve seams allowed. This little kimono style jacket is warm, cute, has a simple wrap over front, and is easy to get on and off with just one big sew-on snap.
Don’t these Board Shorts look fantastic? And the designer has provided the digital pattern FREE of charge, which is always fantastic news.
