Thrifty Thursdays for sewing

Since the folder in which Thrifty Thrusday was posted had been deleted - no explanation given (since restored, but I don't know for how long), I have decided to post all freebies for patterns in their repctive folders. Given, however, the difficulty in keeping threads organized with long sequences of posts, I will attempt the same thing here I am doing with weekly tips and tutorials ---a  single, edited post for each main category.

In the past, if my memory serves me correctly --- the main freebie categories for sewing are patterns (which are listed under their appropriate thread within this folder), how-tos (also in appropriate threads) and downloadable ebooks which I will list here. Any other freebies that don't seem to fit into existing threads will be added as I run across them.

Some stores and designers maintain archive pages with project ideas...

Hobby Lobby has a "Project Inspriation" page that features fabric, needleart and wearable projects as well as other categories that may also have stitchery features: http://www.hobbylobby.com/project_inspiration/projects/projects_by_category_landing.cfm?menu=4

Michaels also has a projects page which includes yarn and needlecrafts: http://www.michaels.com/Yarn-Needle-Crafts/projects-yarnandneedlecrafts,default,sc.html

SewNews has online projects and pattern downloads here: http://www.sewnews.com/online_projects_and_downloads
