Hand embroidery is my jam. I incorporate it as much as I can into my work, and it’s my craft of choice for personal projects too. There’s something so therapeutic about proceeding one stitch at a time and watching your creation come together slowly. If there’s any way I can hand-stitch something, I will. I even love binding quilts by hand! I’ve seen so many gorgeous free hand embroidery patterns out there that I wanted to round them up into one place for easy reference. There are some seriously talented pattern makers in internet land!

Most of these sites have many more free hand embroidery patterns than the ones I’ve pictured here. Some sites you have to dig around a bit to find the free hand embroidery patterns, others have them nicely grouped on a single page. And a few sites you have to sign up to get access to the patterns.
But all the patterns pictured in this post are totally free! Many of the pattern makers also have more complex patterns for sale. But it’s really nice to have so many free options.

Obviously, I love the use of felt in the terrarium embroidery!
