Patterns are cool. Free patterns are even cooler. Making your own patterns is the coolest. Here are a few scattered around the web. Enjoy.

Pretty snappy bucket hat  although this is a cool one too by Kitsch Bitsch

Dog coat. Give comfort from the cold and wet months to your loved ones! This pattern can be used with everything from fleece to nylon. Made this for my loved one, Bruce.

Tuxedo? Red carpet appeal and sexy as hell. Think Daniel Craig. It may get an outing once every few years but it is a cool look worth rocking when you do. Massive vintage pdf here. They haven't changed too much in 100 years but it is easy to update this or go fully vintage. Think Fred Astaire then.
Luckily I bought my tux from a charity shop and fits like it was made for me. Bond. Don Bond. 

How simple is this? A bit of skill and no Russian required.

For the more advanced pattern makers this is awesome. Pretty full-on but with new right blocks (pattern foundations) a nice little challenge!

Another for the more skilled pattern maker or adventurus type. Love this blog.

Who doesn't love up cycling? Upcycle mens shirts which are a dime a dozen in thrift stores. I have made heaps of variations of these. Very cool. Another damn fine blog.

Hate sewing? What! Try this on for size. No sewing required. 

That's it for now but there are heaps more patterns and inspiration on my Pinterest page or my pattern pages here and here.
