Free Machine Embroidery Designs 

6 Things You Need For a Successful Project.


If you have been doing all your embroidery by hand, then you know that it takes quite a bit of time, effort and patience to complete a single project. However, there is a very easy way to finish your work a lot faster. All you need to do is look for free machine designs.

Free machine designs are simply patterns that you can bring to life by using a standard sewing machine. You don't have to go out and purchase an expensive machine in order to use free machine designs.

The traditional sewing machine will work just fine as long as you are adept in maneuvering the fabric. You also need to have certain equipments if you want to use free machine designs in your needlework.

The equipments we are talking about are just six basic tools and you do not need to spend a huge amount for them. We have listed them for you so you can prepare them before embarking on your project.

1. Sewing Machine

If you want to use free machine designs, you would obviously need to have a sewing machine. As mentioned earlier, this machine does not have to be one of those state-of-the-art digital devices that could burn a hole in your pocket.

A traditional sewing machine will do as long as it has a zigzag capability. Machines that allow you to lower its dog's teeth are much better because you will be able to create zigzag patterns more efficiently with these machines.

2. Embroidery Hoop

This is an absolutely necessary tool when using free machine designs. Embroidery hoops can be purchased in any supplies shop.

3. Fabric

Practically any kind of cloth material can be used for free machine designs. The important thing to remember when buying your material is that it has to fit your embroidery hoop to a T. Having the right size of fabric is crucial to the overall appearance of your finished product so you have to measure the material precisely before you start stitching away.

4. Embroidery Foot

The embroidery foot is another essential tool when using free machine embroidery designs. It is basically a needle with a spring that holds the material down on your work station.

5. Thread

Naturally, you cannot do any free machine designs, or any kind of needlework for that matter, if you don't have the right kinds of thread. The type of thread needed is usually indicated on the patterns. The most commonly used threads for free machine embroidery designs are yarns made of polyester and rayon.

6. Stabilizer

This very helpful sewing tool keeps your material neat and orderly despite all the twisting and rearranging of the material. Having a stabilizer will make your work much faster and more comfortable.

Once you have prepared all these important tools, you can go ahead and start on your free machine. If you are a beginner, do not expect to achieve a perfect result the first time around. You might need a few rounds of practice before you master the controlling of your fabric as you work.


When you have gained enough skill, you will be able to enjoy creating many different designs with your machine. If you run out of free machine embroidery designs, you can always go to your embroidery supplies shop.

Since they are really very easy and fun, free machine embroidery designs can be quite addictive once you get the hang of it.
