Printable Patterns for Sewing Samples

When we created the book How To Start Sewing, it was important that all the skills could be put to practical use. Whether you are a sewing beginner trialling a skill for the first time, or an experienced professional troubleshooting an issue with a sewing machinist, we wrote the sewing exercises to match a set of sample patterns. These patterns are currently printed on the pages at the back of How To Start Sewing so that they can be traced and used.

But now, to make it even easier, the patterns can be downloaded from this page as a free PDF for you to print on standard A4 and Letter size paper and card. Cut them out, clip the notches and make the drillholes and you’re ready to put these patterns to use.

This is much better instead of tracing. Saves time too

I was about to start tracing from my copy of your fantastic book but this will be so much easier, thank you.

I bought both of your books and consider them as the best of my library. many shows principes, bute here you start , assuming that the reader might know just nothing and you talk about everyaspect specially the fabric reactions to sewing, . the order in the realisations…. hat down!!! and a big ” reverence.” if you once decide to write technique for advanced skills, for example sewing fluid fabrics, lace, tulle, and thinking ot creating a under structure when creating a new piece, I am the first to buy ! congratulations from the deepest of my heart.
