Welcome to your essential directory of all of the sewing pattern sheets from Simply Sewing magazine. These free sewing templates and patterns include all the shapes you need to sew the projects from our latest issues.
Just find the issue for the project you're making, download and print out the PDFs at 100% and then get your cutting scissors at the ready! We've included 10cm test squares so before you cut into your favourite fabric, check that this square on your printed pattern measures 10cm to ensure your printer has printed the file at the correct size.
