    Spring Branch Doodle Stitching Pattern

    The Doodle Stitching books by Aimee Ray are filled with all kinds of delightful motifs, many of which are perfect for spring stitching. This blossoming branch is a free pattern that will surely whet your appetite for more of her designs. 

    Although it's presented as a single motif, you could easily repeat the design to make a border, or even combine this with some lettering, such as a name or a welcome for spring!

    Springtime Flowers Pattern

    Aneela Hoey, author of Little Stitches, created this simple (and free!) springtime embroidery pattern. It would look beautiful stitched on a zipper pouch or a child's dress. The bright color palette screams spring, but the floral design would look just as sweet if stitched in colors that whisper spring instead.
