Craftsy.com has an article about 7 Free patterns for DIY hostess gifts and in my opinion, gifts in general.
Craftsy.com is very supportive of artists who write their own patterns and encourage them to share their patterns on their website.
Although Craftsy is a business, in addition to making $ via their website and through artists who contribute to it, their support serves to assist up and coming crafters and artists who make their living via their talents to achieve success!
I encourage you to check out this blog post where ironically they have my free pattern as their #1 DIY hostess gift. WOW I feel special!
