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!

3. Parent & Child Matching Tee
Match your kiddo — even if it’s in a subtle way — with this cute tee combo. You can match the fabric and design exactly, or you can do what the sample in the photo did by swapping the fabric to give the kiddo the bolder design.

4. Perfect PJ Pants
This pattern ranges in size from 6–12 months to 8 years. Whip up a matching pair for all the kids in your family. It’s a great pattern for beginner sewers, too. If you can seam a straight line, then you can sew these!

5. Button-Up Bolero Fleece Jacket
This cute little jacket has very few seams to sew. The sample above used a blanket stitch to decorate the edges, but you can use whatever you’d like. If you have a decorative stitch on your machine, this would be a great excuse to use it!

Mesh shorts are the perfect comfy playtime garment. The shorts are soft and durable, and they’re easy to care for. The elastic waist gives kids plenty of flexibility and room to move freely as they play.

7. Bunny Slippers
Look out, because every kid you know will want a pair of these fun slippers! Just because they’re bunnies doesn’t mean they have to be worn in spring. These little cuties can keep toes toasty year round!

8. Punk Vest
Designer mellysews created this when her son asked for a vest that looked like a jacket. The result is a cool little accessory that kids can wear over practically anything, from T-shirts to long-sleeved shirts like the one in the sample above.
These children’s sewing kits make starting (and finishing) a project easier than ever.
