Christmas Sewing Roundup: Free Patterns from Your Favorite Designers

It's that time of year again!  The beginning of December and you have realized you have a ton of fabric and a long list of people to get gifts for but, money is a little tight.   We are here to save the day! 

Here at Meyraki we have collected over 50 FREE patterns for you to use for your gift giving sewing.  These are from all of your favorite designers, so we know they are good and well tested.  

Dive in and lets get sewing up your holiday wishes!

To start you off big, we have quite a few right here at Meyraki Patterns.

The perfect baby shower gift set!  Burps N Bibs will become your go to pattern for all the new babies in your life.  Create one of a kind personal and useful gifts.  Hold those pacis and teething rings in style with Burps N Bibs!  Bibs come in 2 size ranges 0-6 months and 6-18 months. 

This is a very generous stocking at about 9" wide and 20" long.  Make one for every member of the family and it will be a cherished heirloom for years to come.  

The Fried Pickles Tee too is a basic tee. It has the options of long or short sleeves and comes with a crew neckline. If you are looking for a tee with more options check out the Dill Pickles Tee. The Fried Pickles Tee is bound to be a wardrobe staple by many!

The Hope Port access Tee is a design that is very special to me.  I started designing her while going through chemo.  She has been through some changes along the way, but it has only made her more beautiful. Hope is a, semi fitted at the chest and loose fitting at the hem, knit top with a gorgeous V hem.

This is the perfect project to upcycle those old towles or washcloths.  PLUS it's seriously a fast project.  I knocked out 3 of these in 30 minutes just today.  A kids bath mitt is a great gift!

The Newsboy Cap pattern has 3 basic sizes, and is sized for teens to adults.  The smaller size with fit up to a 21″ head, the medium size up to a 23″ head.  and the larger size up to a 25″ head.  I will show you how to adjust to fit sizes in between.  

Pencil Roll Up (or paint brushes, markers, crayons, makeup brushes, pens....) this is a great gift for so many people on your lists.

 Perfect for BOYS and GIRLS.  The Safari Tank includes options for ruffle hem (girly option) as well as the unisex options of regular and banded hem.  Hands down the most useful Summer pattern!  Make one for every kid you know.  The Safari is sure to keep them cool all Summer long!

If you like BIG BOWS and you cannot lie, then Sugar and Spice is the pattern for you!  This pattern comes with detailed instructions and a cut chart to create the cutest headband out there.  Grab your scraps and make some headbands.

The Totally Twisted Headband. My daughter loves making these for her friends. They're great scrap busters and so fast to whip up.

We of course cannot forget about the awesome Car Mat to play with all of their favorite wheels!

A quick tutorial for making a triangle zippered pouch. These are great little sews that use up tons of scrap and are fairly practical. 

Table runners are an easy way to make your table festive for the holidays, or just dressed up for any occasion. This is also a great gift for a friend or host of the party.

Need a quick hostess gift?  These coasters are super quick and easy and make the perfect last minute gift for anyone, but especially the hostess of the party.

Handmade ornaments are such a fun gift to make and to receive.  They make great additions to the package of  gifts as well, as a little extra with the gift.  

 Using unpaper towels not only saves you some cash, but it is good for the environment!  2 checks in the win box for me. 

If you are looking for a treat bag, tote bag, library bag,  or a bag to use as gift wrap, our Trick or Treat bag would be perfect!

And now for the freebies from all our favorite designers, shared with their permission.

Pickle Toes Patterns Summer Vacation Blog Tour

Pickle Toes Patterns is so excited to bring to you a collection of patterns that are easy and fast to sew.  Their patterns have the basic ingredients that you need to make a new sew your own. Color blocking, different fabrics and new styles are just some of the reasons that Pickle Toes Patterns should be your go-to when looking for something fun and unique.  Many handmade children's boutiques use PTP's patterns to customize their designs. Kellie, the owner and founder of Pickle Toes Patterns, started out just as a clothing designer making custom children's clothing because she couldn't find cute clothing for her boys.  Boys' clothes eventually grew into girls' clothing, which grew into making original designs.  To make original designs, she had to make original patterns, and Pickle Toes Patterns was born! Pickle Toes Patterns is not just a business, we are a family.  I hope you enjoy sewing our patterns as much as we enjoy making them. We hope you take the time to look at all of the other blogger's post and creations.  You can follow Pickle Toes at the following social media channels.
