Free Craft Patterns!


We just awarded 25 lucky ducks a free pattern to make Amy Butler’s awesomely oversized Betty Shopper. If you missed that promotion (which was emailed a few weeks ago via our special offers e-newsletter), don’t forget that we often offer free sample patterns from our books right here on Right now we have a pretty sash from Amy Butler’s In Stitches, badass wrist warmers from Pretty In Punk, and three sweet wee-one projects from our Baby Knits Kit. Enjoy them! And poke around for all the others.


Want a free sample project from one of our other craft books? Write me a note in the comments below and I’ll see what I can do.

    I am trying to get another set of Adinkra west african symbols by MiMi Robinson. ISBN0-8118-2005-X. I purchase the book from Macys in Manhattan New, York in June 2001. I look up the website I need help?

    Hi Kate, I love the felt baby mobile, but it seems pretty labor intensive (I am a lazy, lazy crafter). Got any suggestions for a quick(er) and easi(er) new baby gift? (It’s a boy). Thanks! HG

    Hey, Kate! I’d love a free craft pattern… Chronicle Books has the best craft books… I am in love with Simple Sewing…

    Hi Holly G,

    What d’ya know, I’m a lazy crafter, too. To make the mobile even simpler than it already is, skip the felting and just assemble it with store-bought pompoms in various sizes. Or, you could always take an easy project and adapt it for baby. Like, the kitchen towels from Lotta’s Simple Sewing (seriously, so easy) could make for adorable spit-up cloths if you just choose the right fabric (cozy washable flannel in soft yellows or blues printed with ducks or clouds would be adorable). Good luck!

    Thanks! I might just have to give those pompoms a whirl…
