I've been checking out projects for the New Year. I probably won't be doing any of these but I do like collecting them for future reference. One can never have too many potential projects to pour over!
There are lots of free downloads at Free Patterns - this Sashiko-Stitched Bag for example.
You will have to enter your email address to access all the patterns.
Try out some of these free patterns on the Connecting Threads page. I like the partridge and a pear pattern , the bevy of bags and fat quarter gift idea sheet.
Free charts for stitching can be found at Craft Gossip.
The Nostalgic Needleart gals have a Happy New Year Crazy Quilt block for the crazy quilters.
Enjoy! I hope you find something interesting to try.
