I LOVE to embroider flowers! The combination of happy colors and fun stitches always make me smile. I love to mix and match stitches to add depth and texture to each flower. One of the best parts of flower embroidery patterns is that they are always in bloom, so even in the long cold months of winter, you can have bright happy flowers in your home. Here are 4 flower embroidery patterns and kits you can start working on today.

All Nel & Jo Crafts patterns and kits include the robust instructions. Each design comes with instructions created specifically for that design. Step by step images walk you from start to finish. Also included with each pattern and kit, is my Beginner’s Guide and Stitch Library. The Beginner’s Guide covers everything you need to know to get started, like getting your fabric in your hoop, tracing your pattern, and threading a needle. (Check out this post that goes over setting up your hoop and tracing.) The Stitch Library, covers the step by step process for 14 stitches I commonly use in my patterns. Both have high quality images for each step.
PATTERNS | are sold digitally and come as 3 PDF files; the main instructions file with supply list and pattern for tracing, the Beginner’s Guide, and Stitch Library. You can use them from your devices or print them from home.
KITS | include the same great instructions as the digital patterns and come with all the supplies needed for the project. Supplies include:
Flower Burst was one of my very first flower embroidery patterns. It has all of my favorite things, bright green, 3D textures and an asymmetrical layout. This pattern just flows for me.

Thankful Flowers is a moderate level pattern. The bonus of picking this pattern, is that you get to learn several of my tips for stitching script lettering. This pattern teaches 5 different flowers and 2 types of leaves. Get the PATTERN here. Get the FULL KIT here.
This pattern was a labor a love. I don’t think I have unpicked more than on the creation of this pattern. For this pattern I challenged myself to think about flowers in a different way than I had before. I couldn’t be more please with how this hoop turned out.
Wildflowers is another moderate level pattern. The stitching is a bit more detailed than in my other flower kits. All the flowers are made from 3 simple stitches. Leaning each stitch can take a bit of practice. The good news is, this pattern offers the opportunity to practice each stitch multiple times. Making you the stitcher an expert by the end.
