Spring is almost in the air, Valentine’s Day has passed, and it’s time to start embroidering for Easter!
My favorite thing to do when each holiday rolls around is to bulk up my embroidery design collection with newly released embroidery designs.
While I have my own pricey embroidery digitizing program, sometimes it’s just not worth it to recreate the wheel when I can download the exact design I want for free or a few dollars!
This season, I started searching for free Easter machine embroidery designs and also bought several designs from my favorite digitizers.
If you, too, are also looking to build your design stash, below is a list of websites that offer free Easter embroidery designs and even some free Spring embroidery designs.
(Please let me know if things have changed or if you have any other websites with Easter embroidery freebies that you’d like me to add! And, if you like the free designs offered by a specific digitizer, bookmark them or subscribe to their email list to purchase from them in the future.)
Websites with Free Easter Embroidery Designs to Download
I’ve linked to the website freebie sections with underlined links in a different text color.
On some of the sites, you’ll have to perform a search once you get to the freebies page to find the free Easter embroidery patterns. I’ve tried to instruct you exactly how to do that below, so I hope that’s helpful!
Embroideres is one of my favorite places to get free designs.
They have around 30 free, cute Easter designs. Some of them are very clever, and many would work perfectly if you’re embroidering for babies such as the baby’s first Easter embroidery design. A few of my favorites are “Oh For Peeps Sake” and “Show Me the Bunny.” There are also several Christain Easter designs such as “Silly Rabbit, Easter is for Jesus.”
They do have a lot of ads on their page, but they have to make money somehow to keep producing the free designs. Make sure you’re only clicking on legitimate downloads rather than ads!
To find the designs, click Easter underneath categories on the left side of the desktop screen or enter “Easter” in the Search Within box.
There are almost 200 free Easter embroidery designs here that range from crosses to cute bunnies, chicks, and eggs. Several angels can be Easter-themed as well.
One of my favorite religious Easter embroidery designs is the floral Easter cross. I think it would be so cute on a towel or other household item. There are also a few designs that would be perfect for embroidering for children!
One downfall of Embroidery Designs is you can only download 3 designs free per week unless you purchase other designs. So, plan to start downloading early or check out some of their awesome paid designs as well.
3. Bunnycup Embroidery
Bunnycup Embroidery has a huge selection of very cute designs! I love to purchase designs from them, especially when they run some of their great sales like Buy One, Get Two Free.
While some of their freebies are from their earliest days of digitizing and are not as polished as their latest designs, they still stitch out nicely.
Here are some links to free Easter-themed designs: Easter eggs applique, Daisy Mae bunny embroidery designs, fill-stitch Easter egg designs, cottontail bunnies, and several bunnies doing random activities.
You must scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the freebies.
There are three Easter designs on this site. One with a bunny popping out of a broken egg, one really cute design that says Happy Easter, and another with three decorative eggs.
Their freebies rotate from week to week, but it’s possible to catch some great Easter design freebies starting in March and ending in April.
After that, you’ll start finding designs for other holidays.
6. Kreative Kiwi
There are several free in-the-hoop Easter embroidery designs at Kreative Kiwi, which is a favorite site of mine for downloading ITH designs! (You can also buy tons of designs like the above bunny slippers set I bought and embroidered and the awesome Resurrection Table Runner that I purchased and stitched below.)
For a few examples of freebies, though, they have free Easter redwork designs including crosses, a dove, and a chalice.
Here’s another set of Easter-themed redwork also.
Their in-the-hoop stuffed bunny rabbit is also such a cute gift to embroider for friends or family with young children.
7. Ann the Gran
Ann the Gran has over 100 free Easter embroidery machine designs.
Some of the designs are a little odd, in my opinion, but we all have different tastes, I suppose! There are many Easter egg embroidery designs and many with bunnies, crosses, and chicks.
Make sure to check star ratings before downloading, and keep in mind that you can download up to 3 free designs per week. If you make a purchase or join the club, you can download more designs for free.
Scroll through the freebies to find a great selection of Easter free embroidery designs.
There is a bunny applique, Easter butterfly, and a Happy Easter design among others.
9. GGDesigns Embroidery
Freebies can cycle out here, so if this one is no longer free, check out the free designs section to see if she has updated with any new free Easter embroidery designs!
Kreations by Kara has all the freebies mixed by year.
If you click on each year’s tab, it will expand down, allowing you to view by month.
In the March and April sections of each year, you’ll find the free Spring embroidery machine designs and the free Easter embroidery designs.
You’ll have to scroll through their freebies section to find the designs (like this cute bunny licking a lollipop!)
I’ve always found the designs by this digitizing company to be well-made and provide great stitch-outs.
And that’s all the free Easter embroidery designs I have for now!
Please let me know if you have any others you would like to add.
And, if you’re looking for all-occasion designs, check out my huge list of websites with free embroidery designs.
Here’s my tutorial for how to add a name to a bunny ear if you’ve got Easter embroidering on your mind!
