8 FREE Patterns for Adorable Children’s Outfits

Here at Craftsy, we love children’s sewing patterns, and it’s not just because they require so little fabric! It’s also because kids manage to look so darn cute in them, no matter what we make.

This collection of children’s sewing patterns includes both free patterns that you can print at home as well as sewing kits that come with both the fabric and pattern you’ll need to stitch the project. You’ll find pajamas, shorts, tops, dresses, and even some cute slippers to stitch for your special kiddo.

We think these FREE patterns are just too cute!
