Hi, my name is Marlene.

I have created some free designs I would love to share with you. 

When I started with machine embroidery in 2017, I used a lot of free designs to play with and learn the craft, as I was cautious to buy designs.  

One thing I really wanted to make was ITH (in the hoop) projects, however these all seemed to cost money, so it took me a while before I finally decided to purchase a design to try. 

After trying the first design, and understanding the process, I fell in love with stitching and creating ITH projects.  

Therefore, I decided that I would like to share some free ITH and other designs that I’ve created. This is my way of giving back to the embroidery community. I hope we will have more people trying ITH and appliqué projects without having to be concerned about paying for those first few designs whilst learning what it is all about.  

Each ITH design comes with pdf instructions and some with a link to a YouTube video for more visual instructions.  

I love creating designs and I am always looking for inspiration. If you would like to see a specific design, let me know and I might turn it into an embroidery design.
