25+ modern floral embroidery patterns

25+ modern floral embroidery patterns

I had so much fun making this list of 25+ modern floral embroidery patterns! Flowers are probably the most common hand embroidery motif so I tried to find a wide range of styles and stitches. If I missed any of your favorites, leave a comment so I can add them! If you’re tight on cash, there are some free flower embroidery patterns included in the mix as well. Almost all of these are shown stitched and displayed in a hoop, but get creative! I think most if not all of these patterns would look fantastic on pillows, clothes, or mixed into a quilt block, so get busy.

If you’re new to hand embroidery, check out my list of favorite hand embroidery tools here and see the trick for how to transfer embroidery patterns with a picture tutorial here!
