Free Patterns, Tutorials

Frequently I come across vintage patterns or tutorials that I'd like to offer to readers of my blog.   All of these will either be items that are in the public domain, or (as I learn to sew) tutorials that I may write myself.

Hopefully, these links will help you navigate through the variety of blog posts to find what you are looking for.                                                                                                                Updated:  01/12/2013

Footnote (4/1/2014) -- I've done a poor job at keeping up this list.  There are a number of other free patterns that are listed in my Todays Treasure Shop.   To see them, visit these links
