Floral embroidery design
At the first sign of summer, we can’t resist stitching flowers. From using lazy daisy stitch to peppering designs with French knots in pastels, we’re going blooming mad for flowers! Get your needles threaded and get stuck into these free flower embroidery designs.
1. Pansy Flower Study
We love this indepth pansy design, that shows off six different versions of gorgeous pansy flowers! Embellish your favourite jumpers and jeans, or stitch them for a stunning display.
2. Queen Bee
There would be no flowers without bees! We love this sweet design of flowers and leaves - a great starter project for new stitchers!
The word cosmos, in Greek, means beautiful, orderly and ornamental, and it is said that if you give someone a gift a chocolate coloured cosmos flower, it means "I love you more than anyone else ever could!" - so get stitching for your favourite people!
4. Floral Star
Shine brightly and stitch this beautiful star on sweatshirts, cushions and bags! We love the combination of leaf and flower motifs!
Holly Maguire's designs are full of bright colours and fun, featuring lots of playful imagery. This modern interpretation of a terrarium is bursting with life - we know that just stitching it will make you smile!
Because we just love her, here is another Holly Maguire design, this time with twin cats and a whole host of fun flowers to stitch! Perfect for a cushion, although those flowers would look beautiful on just about anything!
7. Life is tough, but so are you!
Sometimes you want to send more than a card to a friend in need of propping up, and this is an uplifting message to stitch and send. Perfect to embroider on a canvas bag or a cushion, just to remind someone of their inner strength!
We make no apologies about including another bee in this flowery collection! This gorgeous design comes from Ruby Taylor, who is a freelance illustrator in London. Her designs are such fun to stitch!
9. Floral Wreath
We love this classic floral wreath from designer Jenn Rigs, who you may know better as Thread Honey. Timeless and elegant, this is a design to stitch for display or as a beautiful embellishment to a cushion.
10. Inside The Greenhouse
Isn't this just the sweetest design? It comes from Irem Yazici, the founder of Baobap. A Turkish born designer, Irem is well known for her fabulous animal designs as well as quirky under the sea fun.
