Border flower embroidery design (as seen on tank top in Creative Machine Embroidery Magazine)


Stitch out this unique flower to add a cool, decorative detail to the garment of your choice!


These flowers make a great border when stitched in succession. They were featured in the May/June 2018 issue of Creative Machine Embroidery Magazine. I’ve set up several versions of this file to make it as quick and easy as possible to stitch out a border.  Depending on your hoop size, you can stitch out several flowers at once that are evenly spaced.  The first round of stitching in each file is a placement line to help you position each piece of border next to the previous one.

  • single flower: 2.35″ x 2.27″ – 4595 stitches
  • two flowers: 2.35″ x 4.54″ – 9120 stitches
