Hello Spring: Tree Embroidery Patterns

Celebrate spring by stitching a tree (or three!).

Earlier this week I posted a tutorial for making spring trees textile art, and today I'm sharing a couple of spring tree embroidery patterns.


You can stitch this "Hello Spring" pattern - perfect for framing in a 4 inch embroidery hoop, turning into a patch or adding to small sewing projects - or a trio of simple little tree designs.

You'll find all four embroidery patterns at the bottom of this post.

I originally stitched this hoop as a sample to show off how you could use one of the little tree patterns in lots of cute projects, but then I thought I should probably share the whole pattern... so here we are!

The more free embroidery patterns to choose from the better, right?

I embroidered my "hello spring" design mainly with backstitch, adding French knots for the flower centres and sewing their petals as lazy daisy stitches. I used stranded embroidery thread (floss), stitching with three of the six strands from the skein. If you're sewing this design I'd recommend just adding a dot for the flower centre when tracing the pattern on your fabric instead of drawing the whole flower.

After sewing the main lines of the tree, I added some extra lines of running stitch for more detail and general cuteness. I used the same shade of green throughout but you could use two or three different shades if you like.

Of course you could also stitch these tree embroidery patterns in autumnal colours instead of spring ones, and adapt the hoop design to say "hello autumn" or "hello fall" with little leaves instead of flowers. Maybe I'll stitch that myself later in the year!

This pattern is for non commercial use only: you can use it to stitch as many trees as you want for yourself or as gifts, but please don't use them to make anything for sale. You may borrow a couple of photos if you want to blog about this project, but remember to credit me and link back to this page on my blog, and do not reproduce my entire  post or share my pattern on your site. Thanks!
