Friday Freebies

screenshot This week I want to point to 3 sites that have recently published free embroidery designs and indirectly introduce you to sites you may not already know.

The first is a french site Broiderie d’Antan  houses many traditional patterns. Poke around and explore the site as you will be rewarded with many embroidery patterns. The site is in French but you can easily use Google translate to help you.

This week Janet published a tutorial on how to make a fabric bowl,  but if you take some time out over a coffee break and venture further into her site you will discover lots of tutorials, projects and resources for needleworkers.

The next site I am sure everyone knows as it is extremely popular. If you are not already aware of Mary Corbet’s Needle n’ Thread  it would be a crime that I did not tell you of it.

screenshot This week Mary published a free embroidery pattern in a Jacobean style.

Once again if you have not investigated her site much you are missing out  as there are numerous video tutorials on various stitches, advice on techniques, tips to make a stitchers life easier. If you have not encountered Mary’s site before it really is treasure trove to explore.

Friday freebies is a regular series in which I highlight free resources online, free patterns and links that are of interest to fiber folks.  All posts in the series are in the  Friday Freebie category I hope you enjoy them.
