Sewing, Knitting & Crochet Patterns

There’s no better feeling than the warmth and admiration when you give someone a handmade gift.

I also know that getting started with sewing, knitting and crochet can be intimidating and you aren’t sure where to start.  Or if you’re doing it right.  Or what to do when you get stuck. 

My craft patterns are (obsessively) written for beginners, taking each step into consideration with a thorough explanation. This way you’re learning as you create that heart-felt handmade gift, for your friend or family member…or yourself!

A Little Note From Me

Hi, I’m Stefanie and the designer behind all patterns and projects at Sunday Patterns.

I was so lucky to have my mom teach me to sew, knit and crochet when I was a little kid. And a little later, she taught me how to read a sewing pattern. I remember thinking, how do you know how to do this? Reading a commercial pattern is something that needs to be taught, and isn’t easily picked up. They aren’t intuitive and they assume you know why and how to do things a certain way.

I started creating my patterns so that anyone, with any skill level, could pick them up and start creating. This means, no hidden steps. Only clear, concise step-by-step instructions.  With pictures.

And what better way to learn to sew, knit or crochet than by making gifts for others! I hope you’re inspired by my projects and get the same thrill I do when you finish your handmade item. Happy crafting!

My Mission

These are the things that matter the most, what drives decisions, and what I stand for.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

We like to keep things as simple as possible. That means clear communication, easy instruction, and making sure we’re as user-friendly as possible. We do this with careful attention to detail, and always doing usability testing to make sure you have the easiest experience.

03

Always Have Fun

We never take ourselves too seriously. It’s important to laugh, whether in triumph of a new completion, or if we’re pulling out the seam ripper again. Puns will always hold a special place in our hearts.

04

Waste Not

Nothing thrills me more than taking something meant to be thrown out and turning it into something useful and beautiful. We’re always looking for new ways to be sustainable and environmentally conscious.
