Lots of online friends liked my post on 15 Sites that offer free Embroidery designs and that made me wanting to share more of the world of machine embroidery with you!
Here follows some of the best In the hoop designs found on different sites:
Artistic Thread Works
If you join the site, you will receive monthly freebie alerts via email. In the month of July, you will receive free zippered pouch designs.
Make yourself an in the hoop card holder for quick visits to the shop or to keep store cards together. I might think I am Queen Bee with this little crown!
Creative Machine Embroidery
Lisa Archer offers a free Thumb drive (USB) pouch. I might make one of these to keep my lipstick neatly in my handbag!
Make the adorable in the hoop baby bib. If you do not have a bigger hoop that 5 x 7,embroider one for your little girl's doll! Replace the flower with another design or monogram to personalise the bib even more.
Make the crayon roll with little effort! What a neat design offered for free. This is nice for when you are planning a trip or for quick visits.
An Etsy shop that offers a direct downloadable design. Currently it is a Zippered bag with an appliqued Sewing machine.
Download the free ITH doll and dress from this site to keep little ones busy. There are more collections available to purchase too. I played with my paper dolls until they lost their heads (literally), I guess these might only get dirty but should be a lot stronger than ours!
Grab the Easter Towel Hanger from Smartneedle. Free designs saved to your account will never expire!
The Bean Stitchers Facebook Group
If you join the Bean Stitchers Facebook group, you will receive access to a lot of free designs. I am sharing the Minion Snapbean with you! This is something the little (and big) men in our lives will love....
A gift card is always a good idea if you do not know the receiver too well. To put a very personal touch to it, make the gift card holder. Again, the apple can be replaced with another picture or word!
Five Star Fonts
Join the FiveStarFonts Facebook page and get instant access to download a free tag with various messages - from "I'm proud of your" to "This is my bag".
Sew Vac Outlet Blog
Make personalised coasters with this free design or use the design as a patch. If you scroll to the bottom of the page you will also note a link to a free square coaster design.
On the Stickbaer blog, there are freebies available for download. If you love soft feminine designs, you will fall in love with her in the hoop frame or label design.
If you join Oregon Pathworks as a member, you gain access to lots of free designs. I sourced this 'Spot my bag' free ITH design. I love that this will fit around the handle. Remember this project when you have to make cheap gifts this year. The possibilities are endless.
Lindee G Embroidery
Lindee G Embroidery offers a free design to make a quick and easy mini zip bag. There is a full picture tutorial explaining all the how-to of 'In-the-hoop' embroidery, which is very useful.
Another very special freebie from Lindee G is a lace snowflake. I am not sure how long this is going to be available for free, so make sure to download it now. It makes a special Christmas tree decoration.
Loved it? Please share it with your friends or on social media - it will really mean a lot to me.
I would love to receive your comments on the collection and what you like to embroider most.
Have an awesome day!
