I’ve gathered a nice group of free patterns for you this week. I’ve been especially interested in making some of the pet beds stuffed with scraps too small for other projects and so I spent some time this week checking out patterns for them. There are a couple of tutorials included in this week’s list.
There are also a couple of cute scrap quilt projects that I am eager to make.
I really love the tiered dress in size 2 T which I’ve included in this week’s roundup. I don’t have anyone in my family that wears that size yet but think I might make some of the dresses to send to Pine Ridge this summer. The pattern is really cute and looks really easy.
Check out this week’s list. I hope you find something you’ll enjoy making for yourself or for someone else.

Free Sewing Patterns
I’ve been looking for something to do with sewing room scraps–those bits of yarn, thread, batting and fabric too small to make into quilts, mug rugs, coasters, or other useful items. I’d heard someone mention stuffed dog beds made out of these types of scraps so decided to do an internet search. Here’s a tutorial from the Field Trips in Fiber Blog. I’m still not sure how these would launder. If you have any experience laundering them, please leave a comment in the comments section below.
