FREE ninety-nine!

Just thought I would post a couple links to some sites that have free crafty-fun patterns. Keep your eye out for copyright issues though. Some patterns indicate you cannot sell items made from them, and so we wouldn't want them for the craft fair. The Internet really is a great crafting resource. So you're not sure what that knitting abbreviation means? No problem, just Google it! :)Enjoy!
A fun purse tutorial
Printable Paper Dolls! (These specify not to be sold, but they are way cute!)
Felted Knit Oven Mitt
Handmade Napkins (Sewing)
The Purl Bee is a great website for crochet and knit tutorials, and have some super-cute project journals as well. You should really just explore the entire site!
Knit Baby Booties (The pattern is a pdf...click on the side-bar picture of booties to download)
The Daily Knitter has TONS of free patterns!
Lion Brand Yarn Company has both knit and crochet patterns available for free, although you may have to enter your e-mail address to access all of them (for the record, my inbox hasn't been overtaken by e-mails from them... in fact, I don't think I have received anything from them!) At the ladies brunch we had some samples and patterns of the crocheted penguin and turtle which are found on their site.
Don't forget our old buddy, Martha Stewart, whose website has more craft projects (with patterns!) than you can shake a stick at! I really like the strawberry pincushions, and we had a low number of sign-ups for pincushion making... a perfect first craft project!
If anyone has some links that they would like to add please feel free, just make a comment.

The paper dolls are darling! I'm going to print them off and fame them for sissy's room. I think it will be adorable. Thanks for sharing!

You should also check out Sew Mama Sew for a great list of tutorials and also perhaps these at How about orange. I especially like the covered thumbtacks.
