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!
This pattern is just one of many hand embroidery patterns on the site.

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!

How to Embroider the Flowers
- Make satin stitches with blue.
2. For the center of the flowers, make french knots with yellow.
3. I also added a straight stitch with yellow in the center of the flower petals
How To Embroider the Leaves
4. Back stitch the stems with green.
5. Make detached chain stitches for the leaves.
Outline The Sewing Machine
6. Back stitch the outline of the sewing machine. Leave the thread alone, as we’ll be stitching that with a different color.
Stitch the Spool of Thread
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.
