Embroidery Stitches on Free Embroidery Patterns

Embroidery Stitches on Free Embroidery Patterns

Embroidery Stitches aren’t any fun unless they are of course stitched into a sampler.  And free embroidery patterns are the best place to start!

There are a few sites that have the best free patterns {some I have been following for a few years even}.  There are a few new sites as well.

For the most part when looking for patterns you will find that simple designs and lines are the best.  Because you are using thread to share your message or story, the less complicated the better.  Nothing is worse than cluttering up the pattern with a ton of stitches…unless you are going for the all cluttered look of french knots, or fur stitching.

Free Patterns so you can practice your Embroidery Stitches

Awhile back I had given out a free Sampler…and I am reposting it here.  There aren’t any super fancy embroidery stitches used– french knot, running stitch, laisy daisy…but great to sew up anyways.  Plus, it’s kind of Springy.

If you are totally into making your own sampler- here is a tutorial on making your own stitchery using a photo.  The process is simple and totally fun!

This was the last house we lived in…..I need to make a new one obviosely, but I am not in love with this house.  It doesn’t have the greatest apeal from the outside…..but I am greatful for it. Maybe I’ll have to draw it up and see what happens.

Do you have a favorite site or free pattern where we can use our new knowledge of embroidery stitches?

    welcome! Sewing with a machine is a lot faster, but I do love that hand stitching time too.
