My name is Signe and I’m a manic hobby sewist from Sweden. I’m one of the most stingy people I know of, so you can probably guess that I love free sewing patterns.

I want to spread the love, so on this blog I’m sharing my favourite free sewing patterns. I’m not a pattern designer. I don’t take credit for any of the patterns. I’m very grateful for the talented designers that share their work with us for free.

At this time I’m only sharing children’s wear, but I will probably continue with clothes for grown-ups later on. For more of my sewing please follow me on Instagram @snaggesyr.

Have fun sewing and feel free (hehe) to use my hashtag #sewforfree.

It felt like the perfect opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. I had actually checked the pattern out before, but forgotten […]

Grow With Me Harem Pants by Sew4Bub

These cute baby pants were among the first free patterns I tried and it was instant love. We got a lot of use out of these pants, since they lasted so long. They started out as quite baggy and in the end they were more like leggings. On the picture to the left my son […]

Ester & Ebbe by Threads by Caroline

I really like this basic T-shirt from Threads by Caroline. It runs from size 74-146 and comes with a pocket option and a cute frill option I am yet to try. I had just enough left of this gorgeous sponsored fabric from Elvelyckan Design to make this shirt in 92 for my son. It’s a […]

Baby Sun Hat by Kathy

This sun hat, found on Merriment Design, drawn by Kathy is really cute, but not a professionally made pattern. She writes so herself in the tutorial: “This pattern is not perfect. You are likely going to need to take a few tucks here and there, but it will still turn out super cute.” I decided […]
