Free Thanksgiving Embroidery Pattern

It’s finally fall, which means Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  I’m not a big fan of Thanksgiving food, but I love the weather and the pretty fall leaves.  I also love that we get to take extra time to spend with family and think about what we are thankful for.  I created this pretty little Thanksgiving embroidery pattern for you to download.  If you are new to embroidery, check out my How to Embroider for Beginners series.

I designed this Thanksgiving embroidery pattern mostly because I wanted to try stitching up some acorns and brush up on my leaf-making skills.  The acorns are made with little french knots and a satin stitch.  The leaves are made using a fishbone stitch, and I love how they turned out!  That stitch was a little tricky for me at first, but I think I’ve got it down now.

The hardest part for me is always the lettering because I want it to look perfect.  I used a small back stitch for the letters and made a second row of stitches on the thicker parts.  I tried to offset the second row of stitches from the first row because I just think it looks better that way.  There’s really no right or wrong way to do it.  Look at my post on how to embroider letters by hand to see a video tutorial.

The rest of the stitches are listed on the pattern.  Check out my video here to learn how to back the hoop with felt when you are done.
