If Jack Frost is nipping at your nose, here’s 10 cute and free sewing patterns to help you stay warm and cozy until spring. Easy tutorials can be found by clicking the links below and there are free printable templates to sew and follow too.
My Cute Mitten Handwarmers are awesome for heating up and stowing in a coat pocket or glove when your hands get cold. They can be used over and over. Filled with rice or buckwheat, simply microwave before setting off on an outdoor adventure.
Just because it’s cold, doesn’t mean you can’t look fashionable. Ponchos (especially in plaids) are on-trend again this year, and my easy Cozy Blanket Wrap pattern will help you make one in a flash from a throw blanket or your favorite fabric.
Make sure man’s best friend is warm too, with my DIY Fur Baby Coat. This tutorial will show you how to adjust for any size pup.
I let my dog Indy try out a Cage Comforter I made for the SPCA. He approved it. This size fits in a small cage, but my pattern is easy to adjust for a larger fur baby. We want our furry friends to stay cozy this winter too.
When you warm up with a steaming bowl of your favorite soup or stew, Joy’s Flat-Out Bowl Holders will help you hold that hot dish. Sitting in front of a good movie with a bowl of something yummy sounds pretty great right now.
Maybe it’s hot cocoa you’re craving after a chilly outing? In that case, whip up a few DIY Hot Cocoa Bags and share with a friend.
This is a great way to upcycle a sweater or fleece. You can usually make 2 pair of mittens from one sweater, and the recipient’s toasty hands will thank you. Cute Mittens From A Sweater
No cozy winter post would be complete without a scarf tutorial. My Easy DIY Infinity Scarf fits the bill. This pattern lends itself to sheer summer fabrics as well as thick, warm ones.
At the end of a cold day, snuggle up with a Pillow Quilt and you’ll be toasty in no time. Depending on your fabric choice, this quilt could go from “comfy for us Floridians” to “Arctic Circle approved”. (Disclaimer: We have not tested this quilt in the Arctic. If you’re headed there we suggest one of those high tech sub-zero rated sleeping bags. And some electric long underwear. And an experienced guide. And an expert team of sled dogs. They know how to stay cozy, alright. Mush! )
