Some Flowers: A Free Embroidery Pattern

I can't believe it is already May! To celebrate the new month and the spring weather I made an embroidery pattern for you!

It is simple but a bit versatile; you can embroider just the main pattern on the left or add any of the extra flowers. This weekend I made two samples using this pattern.

The first was the pink on this beige 'waffle textured' fabric. When iron-on transferring the embroidery pattern I accidentally moved it and three of the flowers were wiggly so I just omitted them. I think it would look really nice with a satin stitch to fill in the flowers.

My second time using this pattern I decided it would be fun to use iron transfer crayons to color the petals. They looked nice before I added the embroidery, but the embroidery really makes them stand out.

If you make something with this I would love to see pictures!

  2. Personalizing items for individuals and companies is a good source of extra income. You can even go full blast with this business if you have your own industrial embroidery machine. You can create and embroider designs, company logos and names on t-shits, baseball caps, towels, etc. embroidery sewing machine
