With 300-plus projects there’s a lot to see, so be sure to take advantage of the search function on the site. It provides a range of options to filter down your search. You’ll be able to search for specific things, but you can filter according to skill, project type, technique, person it might be made for (kids, babies etc), general style of the project (traditional, modern, Japanese etc) and seasonal projects like Christmas- and Easter-themed projects. You can also peruse the selection of quick and easy projects that, depending on your skill level, could be done in a weekend. Or have a look at the selection of gift projects that would be ideal for you to create for others, whether it’s a cot quilt for a new baby or a beautiful embroidery for Mother’s Day.
Once you purchase a pattern it will be sent to you as a PDF that you can print at home on A4 paper. All patterns and templates are provided at full size so you won’t need to scale or enlarge them on a photocopier. Patterns start at just $9, so what are you waiting for?
