Are you looking for some great, free patterns to finish off (or maybe start) your holiday gift sewing? I’ve got you covered with a Round Up of freebies released this holiday season – some that I helped out with and some that I didn’t.
Winter Wear Designs “Christmas Elves” 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways
I joined Suzanne’s Elves again this year. She’s bringing a whole bunch of patterns, hacks and cut files perfect for the holidays. You’ll need to check in her
Facebook Group for codes on some of the freebies, but there’s a roundup post to help you find them easily.
Day 1: Hair Wrap these would be a great addition to a spa package! Some bath bombs (maybe from Dream Brulee, she’s got some new holiday scents that sound heavenly), lotion, an eye mask. Add a bathrobe if you want to make it extra luxurious!
Day 2: Blanket Scarf this is a great piece for someone on your list who is always cold but still wants to be fashionable. There’s two different width options in the tutorial with fabric suggestions.
Day 3: Neck Tie Top Now, I’m sure you’ve seen a shirt like this floating around Pinterest, even I have it pinned on my sewing board. Maybe you don’t want to make this for someone else, but a freebie for yourself is just as good!
Day 4: Produce Bags are great for someone on your list who wants to be eco friendly! It’s just what a reusable grocery bag is missing.
Day 5: About Town Clutch is a great half circle clutch that can fit the essentials. Perfect for pairing it with a glam dress (like the rose gold sequin version I made) or a pop of color (just for errands!) like Suzanne used in these pictures.
Day 6: 12 Days Leggings have been incredible for me. I’ve made 4 different pairs for Miss Sass and she still gets excited to wear them. There’s a ton of different options including the ruffled sides, banded straps and a built in leg warmer (our favorite)!
Day 7: The Collect All Bag is great for makeup, toys or anything you can think of. This one has options for pockets along the edge and two different styles of welt pockets.
