Free Embroidery Pattern With Instructions – Floral Sewing Machine Embroidery

I wanted to share this simple free embroiery pattern with instructions on how to complete it step by step today! It’s a really great embroidery for anyone of any level to make, and it has some basic stitches that I think everybody should learn! I’ll include photos and instructions for each step as well as the colors I used! If you’re not familiar with the stitches, you can refer to them from one of my other blog posts right here.

Side note: I did want to let you all know that I recently purchased Kona fabric and I absolutely love it! There were a bunch of people that had been recommending it and I finally tried it out…I totally wish I would have tried it sooner! It’s really easy to embroider on and comes in a bunch of different colors!

7. Embroider the spool of thread with orange. Start by making horizontal stitches. Then make some diagonal stitches over top of the horizontal stitches. Then, make a few diagonal stitches over top of the other stitches going the other direction so that the thread looks like its wrapped around the spool.

8. Using orange still, stitch the thread running across and through the sewing machine using one strand of the embroidery floss.
