Inside the freesewing folder — which might have a different name if that is the choice you made — you will find a bunch of files and folders.

The one that matter is the design folder. In it, you will find the following subfolders:

  • from-bella
  • from-bent
  • from-breanna
  • from-brian
  • from-scratch
  • from-titan
  • tutorial

Remember when you click the Design icon in the header it would bring up this menu:

Design templates provided by the FreeSewing development environment

As you might have guessed by now, each of these options is contained in its own subfolder under designs.

You can edit the files under designs/[template]/src/ and the changes you make will be reflected in the development environment.

Don’t take my word for it though. Let’s start doing exactly that in Part 2.
