Fun Crafts, Free Patterns

Sometimes it’s fun to wander the web and see what goodies we can find to try out for free in the crafting world. Whether it’s a new craft entirely or a new technique in something we’ve done before, or just a fun variation, there’s always something fun and free out there. But don’t just take my word for it! Here are a few examples to whet your appetite for crafty goodness online.

Mosaic Patterns Online features a new free pattern each month. This month it’s your choice of this gorgeous butterfly or a really spiffy dragonfly. Oh, and if you download the free pattern, you can also get a discount on some of the supplies for making it a reality.

If you’ve ever wondered how to make this sort of spiral tie dye pattern, then go thou and learn at in their tie dye tutorial. This is just one of four different patterns they teach you to make.

Free Patterns Online has a great selection of free cross stitch patterns to download in pdf format. I’m loving this selection of traffic signs.

Free Stained Glass is exactly what it sounds like: an archive of free patterns for stained glass projects. Sure, the patterns are meant for glass, but I could see quite a few of them being good starting points for embroidery, quilting, painting, or applique projects, too.

It’s amazing what you can turn up on the web if you’re of a crafty frame of mind. So go explore, and find some cool new resources!
