I wanted to create a free embroidery sampler pattern to share with you so that you can practice embroidery stitches in a fun way. There are 10 embroidery stitches in this stitching sampler that are all beginner-friendly, and I think they are ones that are good to learn when you’re first starting out. The video further down in this post walks you through how to complete the pattern.
