Free Redwork and Embroidery Patterns: Updated 2017



At almost 96 years old, my mother-in-law, Dorothy, still loved to create 'fancy work'. As a someone who taught herself to sew, to quilt, to embroider, to applique, crochet, and knit, she has made homemade gifts and loved this Christmas holiday, all of her life.

As her hands began to lack the agility and skill she once had and, one finger has a snapped tendon, and she even when recuperating from two mini-strokes or TIAs she continued to try to do her best to create beautifully embroidery kitchen towels, pot holders... and what she called pillowslips otherwise known as pillow cases... for gifts for family and friends..

So, for Dorothy, and for the creative times in her life, I am sharing a small list of free redwork...or embroidery patterns

shown above:
one little 'hotpad' that Dorothy made, and I received years ago. Isn't she just sweet?
