writer and founder


I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Embroidery Patterns: Online Resource with Free Patterns


Amazon Books

Free hand embroidery patters – can you ever get enough of them? I have an ever-growing collection of websites that offer free patterns, and I have to admit, I’ve got a folder on my computer that’s filled to the brim, and then some, with patterns that someday… someday… I know I’ll use! Well, here’s another online resource for you – from Jennie Baer of Homeberries.

Homeberries is a neat little website devoted to hand embroidery, and the patterns available are a cross between primitive, cute, fun, and even sorta funky. If nothing else, check out the website’s look – the use of ric-rac is really well done!

But while you’re there, be sure to check out Jennie’s free embroidery pattern page. You’re bound to find something on there that will be perfect for embellising that little “something” – whether a baby gift, a housewarming gift, kitchen towels – you name it. When I saw her patterns, I immediately started thinking in terms of the hand embroidered greeting cards I’ve been playing around with lately. I’m working up my kids’ summer workshops, and planning to do some embroidery on paper. A lot of these patterns would be great for that!

Jennie also has a page of my embroidery videos on her site… which made me realize that I was not consistent in using the same color for the background of the introduction! Darn. I would have never realized how bad they look if I hadn’t seen them lined up on one page! (Noted for future revisions!)

So, when you get the chance, check out Homeberries – it’s sure to be a fun visit!

  1. Hi, Christine!

    That’s what I was thinking of using them for, too. I think they’re darling for cards!
