The best online source for free Vintage Knitting and Sewing Patterns

Have you ever wished a good online source for free Vintage Knitting and Sewing Pattens? Well you need to look no further my friends!

As you know I'm pretty much addicted to knitting, so imagine my glee when the wonderful blogger Wendy of The Butterfly Balcony made an exciting announcement on her blog this week. Wendy has been dedicating her time over the past few months to collecting free Vintage patterns from the web, be they knitting or sewing patterns, and putting them all together on one handy (and very pretty!) site for all to use. 

This wonderous site is The Vintage Pattern Files!

I had to share this site with you as it looks like it's going to be such an amazing source for all of us vintage home crafters, and you can help to make it even better. Wendy is looking for submissions for the site, so if you have some Vintage sewing or knitting patterns on your blog that you are happy to share with the rest of the blogosphere, then please get in touch with her (you won't regret it, she's lovely!). 

I'll take one of each please!

Seriously, I am loving The Vintage Pattern Files after giving it a browse, I have already picked three knitting patterns from it that I am dying to try out! Check out The Vintage Pattern Files and share your own Vintage patterns with Wendy too, I really believe that it's going to be the best online source for free Vintage Knitting and Sewing Patterns!

I just spent hours last night looking through random free vintage knitting patterns. What a coincidence! However, this format is way more convenient. Thanks for sharing!

Oooooh! This is so awesome! Speaking of knitting, would you mind recommending a vintage sweater pattern for an ambitious beginner? I have an unhealthy obsession with WWII era knits after watching a movie called Edge of Love.

I was very exciting when she announced this too! I've already seen lots of things I want to knit... I need more hours in the day!

I am looking for a knitting book from the early 1960s that featured a sleeve/yoke combination that was sewn to the knitted bodice.
