Free Hand Embroidery Pattern for a Floral Border

Free hand embroidery pattern from Pintangle.comToday I would like to share a hand embroidery pattern for a floral border designed by me for my readers and free for non commercial use. Border designs can be repeated along a line. They used to be used on items such as table cloths and tray cloths etc but today stitchers are  more likely to use them on cushion. For instance this placed off centre running down the side of a cushion would have a very contemporary touch.  Another place you see border designs is on items such as  bags purses and totes. Of course crazy quilters often adapt border desings to add to seam on crazy quilt block.

The main lines of the  design could be worked using surface embroidery stitches using back stitch,  chain stitch, whipped chain stitch or  stem stitch. The flowers could be filled with a stitch such as Satin Stitch or Outlined Satin Stitch.

Follow the links to tutorials if you need information on how to work these stitches.

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