Printable Craft Patterns, Templates, and Instructions

You might know that Creative Bug offers video tutorials, but did you realize that full transcripts, downloadable patterns, and chat forums with other creators are also available? Whether you need summer camp crafts to keep small hands busy, a trendy new hobby for teens, or you just want to browse the extensive Creative Bug pattern library, your library card makes it all possible.

Just be sure to link into Creative Bug from the library website - there's never a charge for the videos, downloadable patterns, instructions, or online help with your library card! If you ever find yourself on a Creative Bug page that asks for payment information, clear your browser cache, close the window, and restart your Creative Bug journey from a FCLS webpage. If problems persist, use our Ask a Librarian feature for help.

Download these magazines to your tablet using the Libby app and use the screenshot function to save and print the instructions, templates, and recipes inside.
