Here’s my list of the top 10 sites to find free machine embroidery.
It really is amazing how many beautiful designs each digitizer offers. Maybe you are thinking …”But Cyndi, I just like to quilt.” My answer, me too! However, I’ve found many good reasons to have an embroidery machine as part of your sewing room.
An embroidery sewing machine is very useful in my sewing room.
I use my embroidery machine to make mug rugs, coasters, designs on tote bags, appliqué, crazy quilt decorative stitches and to make quilt blocks. My favorite use is to make personalized quilt tags for the quilts I make for people. Just a nice finish to my artistic work.
My embroidery machine is a Husqvarna Viking Designer Ruby Royale. Husqvarna has a new line of sewing machines and I do not believe this model is in their line up any more. For more information about my embroidery machine please see my post Machine Embroidery.
My Top 10 Free Machine Embroidery Sites.
Sweet Pea has a big variety of designs available on their site.
The freebies include a scissors case, dragon cross-stitch, egg mug rug, Christmas gift tags and a puppy purse. While not many freebies, it does give you a sampling which will allow you to see how their designs sew out and their artistic complexity. I especially like the designer tote design. It stitches out very nicely.
Bunnycup Embroidery has a wonderful selection of free embroidery designs available. I found this site when I was just starting machine embroidery and it gave me a great boost to my collection. My favorite is the snowmen set and I have used it several times in Christmas projects. These designs are artistic and detailed and stitch out well.
Tattered Stitch Embroideries is a great site! Especially if you want to collect alphabet sets. The owner of the site has a free letter release M-F that is available for free until the next day. The site also runs intro special pricing on new designs. And, the designs are cute and stitch out very well. Be sure to check out the gnome designs. They are adorable and very popular!
Here’s an example of one of the alphabet letters that’s being offered at the time of the writing of my blog post. It’s a great Springtime letter to use in your project
I have several of the freebies as well as paid for designs. If you like in-the-hoop (ITH) projects Kreative Kiwi has many to choose from and the directions to make your projects are easy to understand. Everything stitches out quite well. I made several on the ITH coasters as Christmas presents last year.
You will find pages of free
embroidery designs available.
The site also has variety of machine embroidery designs including applique, filled, redwork, free-standing lace (FSL), and in-the hoop (ITH) projects. All machine embroidery designs are available by instant download. Learn new techniques and projects with the tutorial section of the site.
Oma’s Place has many ITH designs and tutorials. It also has a great selection of free designs. One thing I like about this site is there are Christian designs and saying available for purchase. I have purchased several of the ITH mug rug designs and I have found them to stitch out nicely.
Another great site with several pages of free designs. I found this site when I was looking for fonts that offered the BX option. This website has so many for purchase. The majority of fonts I have came from Designs by JuJu. I like to catch one of the big sales that are offered at different times of the year.
This is a blog site that offers pages and pages of various types and styles of designs. Best thing about it, the designs are free. There are posts going all the way back to 2013 with designs available. It took me a while to surf through all of them.
I like that new freebies are offered quite frequently. I just have to remember to check regularly so I don’t miss the opportunity to pick up a design for free. This site also offers BX fonts.
A great variety of freebies are available to choose from on this site. If you really enjoy the designs you might want to consider the club membership that’s available for a monthly fee.
The digitizers of this site do all digitizing by hand. There is several free designs to choose.
These are my top 10 favorite sites for finding free machine embroidery.
However, before I sign off, let me add one more great place. It’s a FaceBook group called Machine Embroidery Sale and Freebie Alerts. This is where I found all these great sites and how I initially built a collection of embroidery designs.
If you have knowledge of another site or group that offers free designs, please be sure to comment and let everyone reading this blog know about it. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
