There are a number of reasons why websites offer seasonal freebies.

It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the Native Americans. This intricate Native American profile design from Embroiderydesigns.com is a real show stopper and stands in stark contrast from the simpler Thanksgiving characters offered by AnntheGran.com
Another fun nod to the Thanksgiving forefathers is this adorable pilgrim hat design from Kreative Kiwi. You can stitch it out as an appliqué design or a standalone feltie. Consider integrating names within this design and you could have the perfect Thanksgiving place cards!

Thanksgiving tends to be a colorful time of year. There are plenty of free late fall outdoorsy designs that would compliment any Thanksgiving themed decors.
Leaves and Acorns
SWAK offers this free variegated oak leaves design that would be lovely as a border element or turned into a wreath to frame a monogram. You could even combine it with this simple filled acorn from the same website.

While we often associate pumpkins with Halloween, they also align quite nicely with the harvest vibe of Thanksgiving and there are quite a few free pumpkin embroidery designs available. You can find a very basic and simple pumpkin embroidery design on Embroiderydesigns.com. This great little pumpkin freebie from Embroiderydesigns.com has a bunch of usable elements with a basic pumpkin: some acorns, leaves and even a squash. If you have a program like Embrilliance Enthusiast – you can easily extract various elements and pull out any of these. Another great free pumpkin option on Embroiderydesigns.com is this pumpkin and squash design.
I think my favorite free pumpkin design is this adorable little pumpkin and berries design from Oma’s Place. I like it because it’s simple and modern and it could make a nice border element or it could be duplicated to frame a name or monogram.
