SEWING TUTORIALS AND PATTERNS



Welcome to the urbandon tutorials and patterns page. You will find a growing collection of patterns here that are free to use. 

You will also find here some links to my Etsy store where I am selling some more patterns. If you have loved the free patterns you will probably feel the same about the paid-for patterns. Any support is appreciated!

If you find errors with the patterns, or have any suggestions please contact me. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Some patterns* may need adjusting to your size. Hat patterns are given for a standard men's hat size. The instructions themselves give details for increasing/decreasing patterns.

Please don't resell the patterns on Etsy or the like- that would not be cool and I won't appreciate it. You may sell items made with the FREE patterns.

*Free patterns are given 'as is' and I cannot be held accountable for damage, errors or fashion faux-pas that may may arise. I can only give limited advice regarding the free patterns. 
Patterns and instructions assume you have some sewing experience: threading a machine, sewing a straight, a curved line and finishing off.
