19 Easy Flower Embroidery Patterns

Stitch a whole field of flowers with my latest project: NINETEEN flower embroidery patterns!


Sew a single flower to decorate a small project (or frame it in a mini hoop to make a sweet flower decoration!), or stitch a whole bouquet of them to create a larger design.

You'll find all 19 free flower patterns as an easy to print hi-res PDF over on my Patreon.

Subscribe for a small monthly fee and you'll get access to a growing library of PDF patterns and tutorials, with an email whenever I add a new project. You can cancel any time.

I used two colours to sew my flower (purple and pink), stitching along the lines with backstitch and adding French knots for the dots. I used stranded embroidery thread (floss), stitching with three strands from the skein.

These embroidery patterns are part of an ongoing series where I'm revisiting old projects from my archives and turning them into embroidery designs. I originally used these flower shapes to make a colourful floral cushion! Follow the link for the step-by-step tutorial.

You can combine the two projects, if you like, and make fun embroidered felt flowers. Cut out your chosen flower shape from felt and sew it to a piece of contrasting backing felt.

Then add the embroidered design - I stitched mine freehand based on the pattern sheet but you could draw the design on tissue paper and use that to stitch from (see this tutorial). I also added some seed beads in place of French knots.

When your flower is finished, cut it out leaving a narrow border of the backing felt. Use this as a template to cut a matching piece of felt, add a brooch clasp, and sew the two pieces together.
