5 Free Plant Embroidery Patterns For Green Thumbs

Plants are having a moment right now, and for good reason. They add so much life and interest to any space, which really helps to freshen any room up. Personally, I would be happiest if my house looked like a jungle!

But alas, I’ve had to stop myself from buying too many plants because I tend to kill them pretty easily. I have to satisfy my botanical obsession somehow, though, and that’s where these plant embroideries come in.

If you’re just as obsessed as I am, you’ll surely appreciate all of these free plant embroidery patterns available online right now. Enjoy!

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

House Plant Embroidery Pattern

The first free pattern is one that I designed myself. This botanical embroidery was inspired by some of the different types of plants that I currently have in my house.

I think you’ll really enjoy this pattern because it uses so many different stitches to make a bunch of interesting textures.

Design Sponge was able to share a few pages from Yumiko Higuchi’s book  A Year of Embroidery: A Month-to-Month Collection of Motifs for Seasonal Stitching with some instructions on how to stitch them. If you’ve never looked at Yumiko’s work, do yourself a favor and purchase one of her books or admire it from afar online…all of it is phenomenal!

The instructions and the stencil are available here.
