Free Embroidery Design – “Choose to Believe”

I’ve noticed lately that there is a trend in the embroidery world to create hoops with vulgar images or phrases.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, do a search on the wonderful internet, and you’ll see what I mean.  Or maybe don’t… some of them are pretty bad.  It’s such a foreign concept to me.  Like who hangs that in their house?!  Anyway, I decided to make a hoop that would have a positive message and mean something special to me.  I used the words “choose to believe” on this hoop, since that has been my mantra for the past couple of years.  It comes from one of my favorite talks, “Choose to Believe” by Elder L. Whitney Clayton.  It’s a beautiful talk about faith and actively choosing to believe.  Of course, you can use whatever words you want for your hoop.  I linked to the font below so you can change them.  Use whatever inspires you.  Just try to keep it classy people!  Haha!  I created a free embroidery design for this one that you can download at the bottom of this post.

The pink flowers are a little bit more of an advanced move, using a long and short stitch.    I used the long and short stitch on this butterfly embroidery hoop.  It has some good photos to help you figure it out.  If you aren’t comfortable with that, you can use a satin stitch or just outline the flowers.

The blue flowers are a satin stitch.  As usual, for these flowers, I like to stagger the length of the stitches to make them appear more natural.

The words are a back stitch.  I did two rows on the thicker parts of the font.  If you want to change the words, the font I used was Stea.  Look at my post on how to embroider letters by hand to see a video tutorial.
