You can love an indoor pursuit like sewing and also enjoy the great outdoors. But, you can also be an inside cat and sew for the folks in your life who love the outdoors! Are there some goodies in here that are perfect for gifting? Absolutely!
There’s a mix of free and paid patterns in here- if they’re free, it’s specifically stated!
This free tutorial steps you through sewing a cycling hat
Are you (or are they) the kind of outdoors person who appreciates activewear? Checkout the roundup of Activewear Sewing Patterns on the blog, which also includes a list of some places where you can buy activewear and outdoors fabric in NZ.

Pretty high up on the things I’d never though one could sew for themselves… is this free tutorial for a DIY camping hammock

Helen’s Closet has a free apron pattern which you can access here.
This Balaclava pattern from Grasser (one of several different pattern options)
Camp Ditty Bag
This free Camp Ditty Bag Pattern gave such a goreous final product that it didn’t really matter that I had no idea what a ditty bag was for!
Apparently it’s a small bag for your personal effects and important bits (like if you’re a scout), and the idea is that you keep things in one place close at hand.
