Free Sewing Accessories Patterns: Updated for 2014

My sewing room includes many accessories that I have designed and created, myself. I love general sewing as much as I love quilting. So, whether I am sewing with my bigger Viking Sapphire 870 Quilt... or my much tinier ...Singer Featherweight...every one in our family gets new 'clothes', accessories, and fun craft and quilting supplies!

Singer Featherweight: Sewing Accessories (small mat and a snippets bag) Tutorial

I've made my own sewing machine pocket mats, magnetic wrist pincushions and wrist protectors, pincushions, pattern weights, snippets threadcatchers, roll-up scissors holders and many different sized tote bags for quilting supplies.

I love collecting, sharing, and using so many fun patterns that I am sharing my collection with you as my 'Frugal Friday' exchange. My free patterns lists to-date includes free patterns for pincushions, scrapcatchers, needlecases, scissor holders, sewing bags, sewing machine covers, chair covers, traveling iron bags, armchair caddys, wall organizers, clothes hangers and computer monitor covers.

Like my 2,500 Free Quilt Patterns links, you must come back often, as the list will be continually updated!

And if you have tutorials on your own site, just link this post on your site and I will become aware of your blog and add your links to mine, plus give you free advertising for your blog!

  10. This is exactly what I've been searching for. Thanks!

  11. i would love to make some chair covers but i only want the tops. i do not like the way it looks when these covers include the entire chair. i only want to make the tops but i cannot find a pattern. i realize that what i am asking for is very similar to a pillow case. no matter if there is such a pattern, please let me know about it.

    karen joy

  12. Wow!!! It's ALL here! Am so thankful for Google 'cause that's how I got here... pincushions! :)
