Free Bumper Pattern Round Up Alert

Here’s to a new year! Many happy returns to all. I hope this year will be better than the last. As a family, we had a pretty horrendous 2021 with many difficulties and tribulations. However, we have overcome them and are looking forward to 2022 being better!

With that said, I know there are many of you out there who are finding the financial pinch harder than expected as a result of the Pandemic. Some of you may have even lost jobs. I sympathise!

I have put together some sewing and crafting freebies for your January, so enjoy them guilt-free! Use them to craft a new home business and sell online or just self indulge in creativity and update yourself or your home for the coming year.

The projects in this post are all external links and can be found on other bloggers’ sites. Please click on the heading or description below the images to be redirected to the various sites where you can view and download their designs.

How to sew a curved hem

“Whether you’ve been sewing for a while or you’re just starting, if you’ve ever tried your hand at making a circle skirt or dress you know how frustrating is to get a nice looking curved hem with a neat, polished finish. This tutorial will teach you how to hem a circle skirt the very easy way, so no more frustration or ugly hemlines!

Learning how to sew a curved hem on a circle skirt or a dress is not only easy but enjoyable too and you’ll absolutely love the end result! It’s pretty tricky to fold and press and sew anything curved and it can get aggravated by the type of fabric you use.

List of Free Embroidery Designs

Huge list of beautiful machine embroidery designs for free

List of Free Embroidery Designs – A compilation of 12 Designers with hundreds-of-thousands of FREE embroidery design patterns.

I have way too many machine embroidery designs saved on my laptop! I just love finding freebies, so I tend to sign up to extensive designers and companies offering free embroidery design patterns. Because I love my huge list of free embroidery designs, I thought I would share the same list with you! Enjoy…(Please click on the website name to go to their site, where you will find their designs)

Free Embroidery Designs <— Click here. 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. So 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!

Embroidery Designs sample photo of designs (2)

Ann the Gran <— click here. 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.

Ann the Gran sample design.jpg

Ann the Gran digitsing prices.jpg<— Click here. 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! sample free design.jpg

Sweet Pea<— Click here. This is a colourful site with hundreds of stunning designs. There is a design for everyone at affordable prices! At the moment they (sadly) only have 3 freebies! Here is an example:

Sweet Pea sample design dragon 1

Sweet Pea sample designs other products.jpg

Artistic Thread Works<— Click here. 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 they are super cute and usable! These are recent ones sent to my email.

Appliques with Character <—Click here

Appliques with Character sample designs

(Click on the website name above) This 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!

Embroidery Online<— Click here. 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.  Just look at this simply gorgeous carousel horse design…which is FREE!

carousel horse embroidery online sample.jpg<— Click here. Next we have tons of freebies on this site! And they are, again, beautiful. I’m beginning to sound like a ‘stuck record’! This site offers 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. This is just one example of the type of free designs available here… eye design sample

Julie Hall Designs<— Click here. Here you can find detailed designs for the embroiderer and home user. They are exquisite! Check out this free example:

Bunny Cup<—Click here


This is one of my all time favourites! You get free design SETS on this site! And they are super cute!

Here are two samples: and remember, they come from sets!



Stitching Art<—Click here. I’m new to this site, but hey, there are some very pretty designs here. They are lacy and feminine designs, perfect for gifts or wedding dĂ©cor. I have downloaded more to add to my (huge) collection! Just take a look at this example:


Last but not least, here is Smart Needle.<— Click here. 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:
