I love hand embroidery! Perfect to pick up and put down when you’re chasing kids, portable, cheap to start, and loads of possibilities. If gingham kittens and teacups aren’t your style, I dug up a ton of modern hand embroidery patterns instead. If you’ve been meaning to try it out, check out this list of free hand embroidery patterns and stop making excuses! I had so much fun making this list from some of my favorite designers; pick a pattern, curl up with a hoop, and you’ll fall in love with needlework too.
