Welcome to the January Freebie Friday Hand Embroidery Pattern
This is the first Friday Freebie of 2020. There are only 2 months left for the Birth Flower series of free patterns by which time we will have stitched a whole year!
The January Birth Flower is the Snowdrop.
Such a beautiful flower for the start of the year – there are none flowering near me as yet so stitching some will have to be the next best thing…

You will also need the Pattern Template…
You can access the FREE Snowdrop Template Download from my Pattern Resource Library – see the link at the bottom of this post.
From the Snowdrop template, trace the hand embroidery design on to your fabric then pop in an embroidery hoop ready for stitching…
I used 2 strands of embroidery floss for all stitching.
