Flowers are probably the most common patterns you’ll see online. And that’s no coincidence! Embroidery lends itself well to floral and botanical imagery. There are lots of stitches that can be used to impersonate flower petals, stamens, stems, etc. In this post I wanted to share with you 7 embroidery flower patterns for beginners.
All of the patterns use basic, beginner friendly stitches to complete the pattern. Basic doesn’t mean boring though! As you can see, all of these designs look great even though they’re not super hard to stitch!
All of the embroidery patterns below were created / developed by me! All of the patterns are considered beginner friendly because they use basic embroidery stitches that are easy to learn, and they also come with step by step instructions that will walk you through exactly how to complete the pattern.
The PDF downloads come with the following information in them:
- A traceable design
- DMC color suggestions
- Getting started page
- Step by step photos and instructions
- Embroidery stitch guides with photos and instructions
- How to finish the back of the embroidery hoop

This beginner flower embroidery pattern uses a nice variety of stitches that add a lot of interest and texture into the design.

This pattern uses a couple of different stitches to accentuate the different petals in the roses, and it’s a super fun one! The finishing touch of course is the little orange bow tying the stems together.
