Free Pattern Friday – Perennial Pleasures


Over the years, I’ve designed a lot of patterns, some for myself, some for friends or events. If I were to guess (which I totally am!), I’d say I have as many (or more!) free patterns as I do for sale patterns. It might not be the best business strategy, but it satisfies my need to share. Your pattern purchases keep me in fabric and out of trouble, so I don’t have much to complain about. 😉

To make a long story short, I thought it would be fun to feature some of the many, many free patterns I’ve designed over the years, with a smattering of new ones thrown in. Because I’m a sucker for alliteration, we’ll do it on Fridays.

Free Pattern Friday has a nice ring to it!


Originally designed for the Paper Pieced Pattern-A-Day Garden Party Blog Hop, hosted right here on Sewhooked back in 2012, Perennial Pleasures seems like a great place to start. Originally shared on my birthday, this 10″ block includes pattern pieces for a butterfly or a glass of wine, the choice is up to you!
