Sweet (and free) embroidery patterns


These little embroidery projects are adorable. Picture it: you're sitting on your porch stitching away, saying hey to the neighbors who wander by. No, wait. It's hot outside. You're in an air-conditioned coffee shop stitching away, chatting with a friend. And everyone who sees you is charmed by your old-fashioned handiwork.

Yeah! First person to leave a comment! My mom is doing the same, not in the porch or in the coffee shop, just in front of a fan in the living room.

Those are so sweet. I love them. My grandma taught me this skill when I was in middle school and I haven't done it since. I wonder if I could still pull it off! Thanks for the post!

Fun! Really like the feather alphabet. Wish I had the patience to still do this. Of course, I do still have a gajillion skeins of floss, so maybe something simple...

That fox pattern is so perfect for my friend's baby nursery! Thank you so much!

Love your blog and all of your projects! I just traced the feather alphabet onto fabric, and wanted to give everyone a heads up that the pattern is missing X. It was easy to squeeze it in though.

Whoa, that's funny! Now that I look more closely at the photo, I see! Thanks for the heads up!
