18 Patchwork Projects to Sew (Everything but Quilts)
Patchwork is such an appealing and fun technique. You can make so many sewing projects from patchwork. It’s a great way to use up scraps (frugal!) and is visually interesting and seasonless. If you’re looking for free printable patterns for patchwork projects to sew I have compiled 18 below. Stitching up patchwork quilt blocks, bags, curtains, coasters, potholders, skirts, pillows and more is as easy as printing the pdf in my easy tutorials.

Use up small scraps on a Scrapyard Tote. This purse sized beauty is a showstopper!
