30+ Free Applique Patterns

free applique patterns you can download

Free applique patterns, does it get any better than that? Applique is such a fast and easy way to personalize a pattern, and I love using knit fabric since it doesn’t fray. I’ve shared lots of applique projects and patterns over the past couple years, so I thought I’d round up some cute free patterns to encourage using up your knit fabric scraps (see the master list of ways to use up knit fabric scraps too!)

Check out my best tips about how to machine applique for beginners in this post!

Don’t forget you can use any free applique patterns for reverse applique and freezer paper too, all sorts of embellishments. Wendi from Shiny Happy World has a great post on freezer paper vs. sticky solvy vs fusible web, it can get confusing.

Please pin this long collage post of free applique patterns, here, and click through to individual posts to pin specific pictures:

Appliques are a great way to jazz up shirts, pillows, and bags. Check out this list of free applique patterns to use up fabric scraps and personalize your projects! #applique #sewing #freesewingpattern
