February 27, 2013Getting Your Vintage Craft On – Some Free Online Resources
I love shopping for vintage patterns and crafting magazines to add to my collection – but I also love freebies as well! It’s fantastic how the Internet has made sharing crafting resources so easy, and I’ve got some of my faves to share with you.
Tons and tons of free vintage patterns here, for knitters and crocheters. All sorted by category, a nice and easy site to navigate. I’d love to knit the shrug pictured above someday!
For the embroiderers out there,
The Hoop Love group on Flickr has just about every vintage embroidery pattern you could dream of, I think!
For those of you who like to craft with printables,
Vintage Fangirl lots of high resolution printables. Not all of hers are mid-century, some are older, but there’s definitely a good selection of mid-century ones there.
And for those who like a little bit of everything,
Bramcost Publications specializes in reproducing vintage books on crafting, beauty, entertainment and more. On their blog, there’s lots of freebie patterns of all sorts.
And for a bit of fun for those of you with little girls,
The Bleu Door.com has all of the Betsy McCall paper dolls, that you can print out! I can’t wait until Ella is old enough for these!
I hope you enjoy, and if you’ve got any great vintage crafting freebie links, I’d love to hear about them!
