How to Read an Embroidery Pattern

Every embroidery pattern you buy may be slightly different, but I wanted to make a little reference for you to understand the basics of what comes in one! I hope you enjoy, and it helps to simplify reading an embroidery pattern.

  • Every pattern comes with a stencil you can print out.
  • It will also come with color suggestions for the embroidery thread to use.
  • There will be a diagram or photos of the types of stitches to use
  • Pictures or illustrations of how to sew the embroidery stitches. (all of my patterns have step by step photo instructions of the stitches)

Feel free to save it and share it!

If you’d like to try your hand at a pattern or a kit, I have some here.
