Oekaki Renaissance x Peppermint Patterns

Whether you’re a seasoned seamstress or a relative sewing newbie, we have a selection of free (yes, free!) downloadable sewing patterns to suit your skill set and your style.

Our four most recent patterns were created exclusively for Peppermint by the talented Emily from In the Folds, and feature a wardrobe staple for every season, so you can put those sewing skills to good use by whipping yourself up a gorgeous handmade garment for any occasion! Before you start, don’t forget to check out the #peppermintmagazine and #peppermintmag hashtags on Instagram for inspiration and to see how others have made these patterns their own. We hope you love them.

These Sewing School patterns are supported by Oekaki Renaissance from Toyota Home Sewing – a revolutionary new sewing and free-motion embroidery machine designed especially to help you make beautiful things.

‘Oekaki’ is Japanese for ‘to draw’, and that’s exactly what the machine lets you do – ‘draw’ your ideas directly onto fabric using free-motion embroidery (like the examples below) to create the designs of your dreams for quilting, textile arts, dressmaking, home furnishings and more.

The opportunities are endless – as is the smug satisfaction of knowing you made something totally awesome!
