The Vintage Pattern Files

Morning!

I think it is about time I told you all about a little blog which I have been working on over the last few months...


As the title suggests this is my attempt to create an on-line link library of free vintage knitting, crochet, and sewing patterns. The idea being, it will make it easier for you and me to find the perfect vintage pattern by having them all (I can dream) listed in one place. 

It is obviously going to be an ongoing project, as there will always be new patterns somewhere on the web to be added to the collection, but hopefully, it will be a useful tool for those of you who love vintage patterns and free stuff as much as I do!

If you have any links you would like to add or suggestions on how to make it more user-friendly I would love to hear from you, I will always ensure that you are credited :)

  3. Glad you're doing this Wendy, I used to have a page on my blog with free patterns whcih was quite popular but I never updated it so removed it in the end. Now I can just look at your blog instead!
    Here's a link to my page, which is still active but not linked to my blog, feel free to add any of the links to your page, if they would be useful for you:

  11. Sounds like a brilliant project! I can imagine it will become a great resource for those who love knitting! Wish I could be patient enough to learn how to knit....my mum knitted a cardigan for my cat and a crochet collar for my sister! It's absolutely brilliant! Thank you so much for the lovely Birthday wishes and sorry for the very late reply. Have a fabulous week my darling!
