Welcome to Cut Out + Keep, we're so excited to have you as part of our community

We've got over 70 thousand projects for making everything, from knitting and sewing patterns to beauty tutorials and recipes. The site is completely free to use, with no tutorials, kits or memberships to buy and there are lots of fun ways you can get involved and become a Crafty Superhero yourself!
