A second abstract floral hand embroidery pattern

Free hand embroidery pattern from Pintangle.comThe embroidery pattern I am sharing today matches or rhymes with the pattern I shared last month. If you ever want to browse what I have shared in the past in the way of freebies take a look at the Free patterns category.

Designs like this are ideal to use on a crazy quilt block but if you are someone who is interested in hand embroidery this type of pattern work well on most small items. You can use it on things like small gift bags, a sewing caddy, needlebook, book cover, purse or bag.

For this pattern I would choose a thread with a firm twist such as cotton perle #8 or #5.

This design could be worked using surface embroidery stitches using back stitch,  chain stitch, whipped chain stitch or  stem stitch. The flowers could be worked by simply outlining them or you could fill them with satin stitch or outline satin stitch. For the little abstract lines that stick out from the flowers you could use straight stitch and bead or French knot or work them in pistil stitch.

If you need to know how I would transfer this pattern to fabric, I have a tutorial on how to transfer embroidery designs to fabric.

How ever you adapt the pattern I hope you enjoy stitching it.

Free Primitive Floral Hand Embroidery Pattern

Free hand embroidery pattern from Pintangle.comToday I would like to share a design in the style of a Primitive floral hand embroidery pattern

To work this design I would choose a thread with a firm twist such as cotton perle #8 or #5.

This design could be worked using surface embroidery stitches using back stitch,  chain stitch, whipped chain stitch or  stem stitch. The leaves could be filled with a stitch such as Cretan Stitch. Or you could work leaves and flowers in Satin stitch or Outlined satin stitch.

For the centre of the flowers, on the right project  I would be tempted to use buttons if I could find the right colours and size. How ever you adapt the pattern I hope you enjoy stitching it. Follow the links to tutorials if you need information on how to work these stitches.

This type of simple pattern is often used on items such as bags, totes, cushions, book covers or tea towels however I  am not sure people embroider tea towels these days but it is a suggestion. As I designed it I thought this pattern could be used for a  small padded bag used to protect a tablet or ipad. It could be a good gift idea as the holiday season is just around the corner.
