Why do embroidery designers offer free designs?
You may wonder what motivates some of these embroidery designers to give away free designs. By periodically releasing “freebies” designers get potential shoppers to come back to their site to see what’s new. They figure – who knows – maybe you’ll make a purchase as well.
A lot of sites will ask you to register prior to giving you access the free designs. This will allow them to send you marketing emails in the future.
A final reason why a site might give a way a free embroidery design is to build trust. If you like the quality of the free design, you will likely come back when you are ready to purchase designs.
What to make with these free Easter embroidery designs
I am the worst when it comes to decorating my house for various holidays. But, I think it’s a cute touch to hang seasonal hand towels in your downstairs bathroom / power room. You can just buy some simple white or pastel-colored hand towels and stitch out some of these designs. And, voila! Your bathroom is seasonally appropriate. You can do the same for the kitchen towels.
Easter is the perfect opportunity to dress up in your cutest spring outfits. For little kids, a gingham or seersucker looks perfectly seasonally appropriate. Just add an embroidered Easter-themed design, and possibly a name or a monogram and you have the perfect look.
If you want to go a more casual route, stitch out these fun Easter designs on baby onesies and t-shirts to make a more laid back Easter look for a baby or a little kid.
You can also use these Easter-themed design to add a bit of flair and personalization to an Easter basket. There are a number of cloth “basket” that can easily be personalized with a name and an embroidery design.
Where to find free Easter embroidery designs
I actually can’t believe I found so many free Easter embroidery designs. It’s actually pretty incredible all of the really unique Easter themed embroidery and appliqué designs you can download for free. Here are just 10 of the many free Easter embroidery designs available.
Simple egg appliqué design
Looking for a basic little egg appliqué that you can stitch up in some pretty springtime fabric? Head over to my resource library and you can grab free Easter egg appliqué. You can thank my sister for that design. She specifically wanted an Easter egg appliqué that she could stitch out on hand towels with Lily Pulitzer fabrics. While I wasn’t super excited about the project, I have to admit that they turned out pretty cute.
Decorative egg appliqué with cross
If you prefer a more decorative appliqué design, check out this free decorative Easter egg with a cross appliqué design at Oma’s Place. It, too, would be lovely on some hand towels, but also fancy enough to stitch on an simple, seersucker Easter dress.
Bunny frame for name embroidery design
“Where my peeps at?” embroidery design
I LOVE peeps. It may be one of the bet parts about Easter as far as I’m concerned. This silly “where my peeps at?” free embroidery design from Embroideres would be really cute stitched out on a t-shirt for a kid or on a kitchen towel.
Brainy bunny embroidery design
This sweet little loving bunny with glasses from Embroideres would be adorable on a baby onesie. You may need to scale it down a bit to feel appropriately sized for such a small garment but you can do this quite easily in SewWhat-Pro.
Chick appliqué design
Baby chick designs are the perfect symbol of Easter. Here is an adorable chick design for a baby onesie or a kid’s t-shirt: a sweet little (albeit slightly goofy) machine appliqué design from Bunnycup Embroidery. This appliqué is actually part of a free set of designs that includes some additional similarly styled animals.
Little bunnies embroidery design set
Bunnycup embroidery also offers a cute little set of bunny embroidery designs. These are so many different ways you could use these designs. I could imagine stitching them out around the hem of a simple dress for a little girls. Easily transform a basic dress or skirt into the perfect Easter outfit.
In-the-hoop bunny felties and stuffies
Add a cute little stuffed bunny to an Easter basket. Apex embroidery offers this free bunny in-the-hoop bunny stuffed toy that you can stitch together in no time! You could actually stitch out a whole family of bunnies and hide them around the house for an alternative Easter tradition. Never made an in-the-hoop project? Learn how.
If you don’t feel like doing any stuffing, you can also make bunny felties! That’s just a design stitched out on some felt. Unlike a stuffie, these felties are designed to stay flat.
Funny little bunny embroidery design
Here’s another simple little joyful bunny embroidery design that would be great on some kitchen towel, t-shirts or baby onesie. For a little kid, just add a name below the bunny and you have the perfect personalized Easter t-shirt. I think it would look especially cute on a ruffled-sleeve t-shirt for a little girl.
