20+ Beginner Embroidery Patterns

I always say that the best way to learn how to do something is by doing it.  This is definitely true when it comes to embroidery.  Starting with a beginner embroidery pattern is definitely the best way to go.  If you’d rather start with a kit that comes with supplies, check out my post full of Embroidery Kits for Beginners.

If you’ve never done embroidery before, how do you know what a beginner pattern looks like?  Beginner embroidery patterns have simpler stitches and not a lot of filling in of areas.  To make things easy for you, I’ve compiled a list of patterns that I think would be great for anyone just starting out with embroidery.  Some are easier than others.  If you are a true beginner, look for something that is just lines and no filling or fancy stitches.  Some of these are free and others are from Etsy shops that I love to support. 

If you’re new to embroidery, make sure to check out my How to Embroider for Beginners series and learn any stitches you need on my embroidery stitches page.  I have a video for each one!

Jessica, thank you so much for the embroidery patterns! Here in South Africa, we're still in Corona lockdown so I really appreciate them and your creative blog.

Is the rainbow sampler from your site still available? I signed up to your newsletter but it's not in the library. I'm brand new to embroidery and it looks like so much fun. Thanks!
