List of Free Machine Embroidery Designs
UPDATED JANUARY 2020. I have collated a list of designers from around the web that offer free machine embroidery designs for instant download. Each designer can be linked to directly from this post, where you can then browse their free machine embroidery designs and download them to your device.
Some are available to download in all formats, some only in the format you require. You may need to register on some of the sites before you can download the freebies, but registration is free.
If you know other designers that should be showcased here, please leave a comment at the end of this post so that I can add them to this list!
This is a great site for creatives! They have lots of free embroidery designs, however some are time sensitive, so you must get them while they are free and before they revert back to their sale price!
They also sell many other items like patterns, crafts, tools for embroidery and fonts. Plus they promote freebies, discount deals and daily gifts! This is one worth browsing over as you will definitely find some stunning freebies to die for!
Sign up for free to gain access to 1000’s of free embroidery designs! They do, however, have a weekly limit to the free downloads. You can download 3 per week for free with no purchase of anything, or 6/9 per week if you purchase other products.
They offer weekly discounts and updates on their newest designs. I have saved literally hundreds of designs from their site over the years!
This site is very similar to Free Embroidery Designs (above) and offers their designs on a pretty identical way too. 3 Free designs per week with no purchase of other designs or goods, then 6/9 per week if you buy goodies.
They also offer a digitising service and lots of special offers and deals. They also sell embroidery software for the more adventurous embroiderer too.
Again, this is a site full of embroidery designs, and currently only has one page of freebies. However, what’s lovely about this site is that they offer an Affiliate Program, so any embroidery-mad sewers out there who want to promote their site, can do so and earn some $$$ while doing what they love! You can Register here to become one of their affiliates!
When I wrote this post originally, this site was offering a handful of free designs, but has since removed them all. However, if you still wish to take a look at what they offer, please click on their name or image above.
This site has over 30 000 designs and offers a Gold and Diamond Membership for die-hard embroidery fanatics. Sadly I don’t belong to any of their memberships but I do get regular FREE designs sent straight to my inbox on a weekly basis!
These usually consist of a whole design set chosen from their archives which are super cute and usable! These are some examples sent to my email.
Appliques with Character is one of the cutest sites I’ve found in a long time. It is based mainly on Disney characters and the embroidery designs are simply adorable! There aren’t many freebies, but seriously, the designs are cheap enough!
There are designs for boys and girls of all ages! The creator has been sewing for over 10 years and loves embellishing her projects with Disney characters. She also offers a design service, so if you need something created specially, she will be happy to digitise for you. Her shop is worth browsing for sure!
Here you will find beautiful designs for FREE, along with designs for quilting, in the hoop, freestanding lace and OESD stabilizers. This site is a must. I have a stunning range of designs that I have collected over the years.
Next, there are tons of freebies on this site! And they are, again, just beautiful. I’m beginning to sound like a ‘stuck record’! This site offers page after page after page of free designs for domestic use, as well as great prices for new and trending themes. They offer a digitising service as well. Below are examples of the type of free designs available here…
Julie Hall Designs has 18 pages of free designs for all sorts of projects. Take a look at the examples below.

There are some beautiful lacy and feminine designs here, perfect for gifts or wedding décor. I have succumbed and downloaded some of these to add to my (already huge) collection! Their designs are on one freebie page, so you just need to keep scrolling down to browse them all. Just take a look at this stunning example:
They have a small freebie collection, but what they do have is top class. Very detailed designs; no-one would ever know it was a freebie! Isn’t this lovely:
