We have a fun set of free patterns for you today! Marina Brumpton of Frocks & Frolics has designed a full set of holiday patterns here at Sew Mama Sew. Marina invited students from her sewing classes in Kidderminster, England for a Christmas Craft Day at the Chestnut Children’s Center. Take a look at the fun intro video from the event! Marina filmed her video tutorials, and has a Frocks & Frolics Holiday Pattern Set for you to download. The set includes a darling Reindeer, a holiday Gift Bag and a lovely Stocking.

Marina’s Frocks & Frolics PDF patterns feature classic silhouettes, clear written instructions and step-by-step videos. We especially love the Classic Girl’s Coat, Millie’s Dress, Megan’s Dress… We could go on and on!

Marina first trained as a tailor as a young girl, and she went on to work with a number of designers. When her son was at home she worked as a Textiles and Product Design teacher, and now she is turning her true love for pattern drafting and teaching sewing into her own business. Marina’s talent and skill as a designer and teacher is clear in both her patterns and her video tutorials. She loves to sew, and she loves teaching others to sew!

Megan’s Baby Bird Pinafore Dress is Marina’s latest pattern. The eBook includes pattern for sizes 2-6, written photo instructions and an online sewing class!

From Marina: Christmas is my favourite time of the year; the house is full of craft activities waiting to be tackled and tempting mince pies sit on the counter.

Luckily I have the best job in the world teaching beginners how to sew, and at Christmas I just get to play! Sew Mama Sew is one of my favourite blogs so I was thrilled to prepare some online video tutorials for you, showing how to make some easy crafts! All you have to do is download the free pattern pack, click on the video link and join my students this year as we craft away to our hearts’ delight.

From simple heart appliqué to the time consuming “Wichtelmann,” all the templates are there and with some seasonal fabrics such as sack cloth, felt and printed cotton you are on your way. Very likely you already have plenty of scraps you could use anyway!

Most of the time I develop patterns, mainly children’s at the moment; I fit as much as I can on a page so you don’t have to print off pages you don’t need! Curious? Pop across to Frocks & Frolics and find out more!
