Free Hand Embroidery Pattern - Holiday Deer

Posted by: Digitalmisfit

As promised, here is my first free embroidery pattern!

I just love cute wildlife, especially those with a bird on their head!  Stitch this up on a tea towel or an apron for a wonderful and original last minute holiday gift.

To transfer the design, simply print it out and trace it over transfer paper onto your fabric.  You can also use a transfer pencil/pen/marker (make sure you reverse the design before printing it out if you plan to include the lettering, or want the deer to face the same direction as the picture!).  If you don't have either of these tools, just tape the printout to a sunny window, and tape your fabric up over top and trace away with a regular pencil.

To download this lil deer and his friend, just click the image and he will open up in a new window.  Then just right click and save to your computer.

Let me know if you stitch him up.  I would LOVE to see your finished pieces.

If you like this pattern, please leave a comment.  I am new to pattern designing, so I could use your feedback.

I look forward to sharing more free patterns with you, but please do not sell items made from this pattern.

He is so totally adorable! I want to stitch him up, but he will have to wait until after the holidays!
