Do you enjoy making gifts? I usually have dreams of all the things I could make for family and friends, but I never make the time to actually do it. I love making clothing for myself and others, but it’s tricky making clothing to give if you don’t know someone’s size. I know it’s possible to make clothing that can be “one size fits all” or clothing that you just need an estimate of their size to be able to create it. Besides creating clothing that needs little to no fitting, how about free patterns to make your life that much simpler! I found 10 free sewing patterns for women that are perfect for giving as gifts!
