Free Bee and Bird Embroidery Patterns

Hey, guess what? If you love these patterns, you should sign up for my free newsletter! Get all kinds of inspiration, free patterns and more delivered to your inbox about once per week! You can find out more by clicking here, OR just fill in the box below:

Bees, birds, and flowers are my favorite! They seem to keep popping up in so many of my patterns and designs… in talking to lots of you on Facebook, I think they have pretty universal appeal- maybe because they represent warm sunny days and beautiful relaxing gardens.

This is probably my most popular free embroidery pattern ever–  It’s called Bee Happy. You can download it here.


Also, I’ve got a little Sewing Bird free embroidery pattern that’s pretty cute!

Enjoy!! I can’t wait to see what you make with them!

    Thank you for the adorable embroidery patterns. I love to embroider. I took a quilt block I am hand embroidering with me to the VA Hospital today to work on while I waited for me husband to have a skin cancer removed.

    Have you ever used pencil colors to color fabric? I was thinking with the coloring craze going around that I would like to embroidier some of the blocks and then color them. But, not sure how permanent color pencils would be.

      No, I have not, but I’ve seen several people do it with embroidery blocks. Maybe you could try some on scrap fabric. I would even experiment with heat setting the color with an iron, and then wash it and see how it holds up. I think it would be easier to color first, then embroider. Let me know how you make out!

      I’ve embroidered redwork or colorwork wild flowers, then used crayons to fill in and color the flowers. Then heatset with an iron, using wax paper between the colored block and the iron. Beautiful!

        Yes I’ve seen people color in their embroidery that way, but I’ve never tried it. It sounds fun!

    Thanks for pattern! I’ve been using ladies size 6 and Childs size 3-4 to make these into mug rugs from my stacks of Hawaiian fabrics. This way, pattern is safe in iBooks on all my computers!
