14 Gold Medal Sewing Patterns

gold-medal-sewing-patternsThe XXII Winter Games, in Sochi, begin on February 7th and go until February 23. With just over two weeks of winter sports and athletic showmanism, it’s hard not to get excited. Though I’m mainly looking forward to the hockey games, especially since so many of my beloved Chicago Blackhawks are representing their various countries, there is also a slew of solo events to get your pulse racing, like skiing, ice skating, or snowboarding.

In honor of the 2014 Winter Olympics, AllFreeSewing is here to inspire you with a fabulous collection of gold metal projects! Whether you want to show off your patriotism as you root for America, or you want to work on getting yourself in tip-top shape at the gym, we have something for you to create.


Show Your Pride

Cheer on Team America with these festive and patriotic sewing projects! These clothing and home decor items are sure to inspire a sense of camaraderie. If you’re visiting us from another country and would be rooting instead for another team, you can easily change the fabric to reflect your country’s colors!

Let the Games Begin!

With all the prepping and training you’ll be doing to gear up for the winter games, why not be inspired to host your own mini games? Invite some friends and family over and hold your own contests and events to replicate those in Sochi; you can all go to an ice-skating rink and see who can circle the rink the fastest, or sled-race down an especially big and snowy hill! Or you could gather in a large backyard and come up with relay races and agility tests! At the very end, you can give out DIY medals and awards to the winners.
