      Hello Linda,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      Yes, the patterns will be free. I apologize but we are still working on loading content onto the site. If a link or download is not working for you, please attempt your access again in a few weeks.

      Thank you,



    Found this on Pinterest dating to 2016–but now the links are broken. Maybe it’s time to take it down?


    This is strange…you show these bags and say “get the free pattern here”, but there are no patterns to download!
