Here’s a couple of floral patterns to embroider – goldenrod and poppy
Here’s a couple of patterns of birds for applique or hand embroidery. Cutting them out as appliques before embroidery gives your project some color or contrast to the background fabric.
Sweet! These girl and boy angel embroidery patterns would be cute on pillowcases or stitched into a quilt. A gentle reminder of the days before cartoon licensing when plain fabric was embellished with an artful design by a loving grandma or aunt.
These cute little bears are from a vintage magazine (circa late 1800s) and would be adorable in a baby quilt. The fuzzy outline is easy to stitch and for a bit of color you could cut a fabric applique in brown, tan, blue or pink!

Kiss me Kate! This is a vintage monogram (circa early 1900s) for the Katherine or Kate in your life. It can be filled in with thread or just use the outline…either way a lovely monogram. Remember to reverse the image before printing if you are tracing with a transfer pencil to use with a hot […]

If you watch old movies sometimes you’ll catch a glimpse of women wearing skirts with Mexican motifs around the hem or a single motif on the pocket that matches the thread in the embroidered peasant top. The flower cart is my absolute favorite! Enjoy these Mexican embroidery patterns!
