Sometimes we’ve got the itch to stitch but don’t have an embroidery pattern on hand. If the itch to shop happens at the same time, well, time to visit a local shop and select something from the wonderful eye candy that tempts me! But if what if you don’t feel like shopping? Maybe you don’t want to deal with traffic. Perhaps the weather is yucky. Maybe the kids just settled down for a nap. Or maybe you just don’t feel like putting on shoes. Interwebs to the rescue! We’ve rounded up some great resources for free hand embroidery patterns.
Lucky for you, we’ve found some blogs and websites that offer free hand embroidery patterns! Some are for personal use only, some are designs in the public domain, some are vintage, some are modern, some are simple and some are complex – but there’s a pattern for whatever mood strikes. All are free!
