About us



Welcome to the website of schnittchen! My name is Silke and I live and work in Munich where I started schnittchen a couple of years ago. schnittchen is a small pattern company developing young, simple and clear patterns for everyone.

Each schnittchen is available as paper pattern or as downloadable pattern that you may download and print on your home printer. With a little patience the pattern is glued in no time and you may start sewing right away. Printing and gluing a downloadable pattern is very easy! There is a step-by-step instruction available making sure to give you the best start.

The paper patterns are printed on 80g paper in actual size. A detailed instruction with fabric recommendation, cutting plan, required amount of fabric and material is included in each pattern. To make it very easy I try to make sure that the different pattern pieces do not overlap. Hem and sewing allowances are already included in all of the schnittchen patterns. There is no need to add a sewing allowance when cutting the fabric.

There is a detailed step-by-step photo instruction for many patterns in the schnittchen-blog. I also blog about new patterns or introduce people, projects and things that inspire me. I also try to show my own handmade wardrobe. Additionally, I will show fabric shops running schnittchen patterns and there will be several blog events such as sewing contests or a schnittchen advent calendar.

To keep up to date, sign up for our free newsletter or give us a like on facebook. This is where the news will be posted at once.

If you have sewn a garment using one of my schnittchen patterns and you would like to show your project, I am very happy to receive an email with your photos attached or a link to your blog. There is also the possibility to register with the schnittchen-club and show your projects there.

I hope you are happy with my schnittchen patterns feel free to contact me for any feedback that may arise. (silke@schnittchen.de)

Yours, Silke
