I love doing seasonal embroidery patterns that I can offer my followers for FREE! This pattern is perfect for the Fall season!
This pattern is beginner friendly and would be super fun to do yourself, or with kids at home!
STEP 1: GATHER YOUR MATERIALS
To create this hoop, you will need:
- your Thread Unraveled pattern
- black embroidery thread (DMC 310)
- white fabric (I like to use linen blends)
- 5 inch embroidery hoop for the web
- 3 inch embroidery hoop for the spider
- felt (for the back of the hoop)
STEP 2: DOWNLOAD YOUR PATTERN
STEP 3: TRANSFER YOUR DESIGN
Start by printing your pattern and tracing it onto your pieces of fabric. Trace the web onto fabric that will fit in your 5-inch embroidery hoop. Trace the spider onto fabric that will fit in your 3-inch embroidery hoop. I like to use a water-soluble marker to trace my pattern. You can also use a #2 pencil or whatever else you have found that works for you!
STEP 4: STITCH YOUR DESIGN
Once your patterns are transferred onto your fabrics, you are ready to begin stitching your designs!
STEP 5: FRAME YOUR EMBROIDERY
I love framing this design in the actual hoop because I love how the circular web and spider fits perfectly in the round frame. To finish off the embroidery hoops and make them look neat and tidy on the back, I like to back the hoop with felt. This way, it preserves the embroidery and looks great on the front and back!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, friends! How cute is this little rainbow with the pot of gold at the end?! I whipped up this little pattern the other day and thought I would share it with you for FREE!
I love the bright happy colors in this little hoop. I made it in a 6 inch embroidery hoop, but you can enlarge or shrink the pattern to fit any size!

Step 3: Gather your materials
You will need:

Step 5: Frame your embroidery
I love framing my embroidery in the hoop I made it in. I love seeing the finished product all neat and tidy in its’ hoop. I’ve done some experimenting for framing embroidery in a hoop and the method I feel looks most professional and doesn’t put your embroidery at risk with things like hot glue is the FELT METHOD. And the best part is it’s EASY! Here’s how to do it in just 5 simple steps!
I hope you enjoy this free embroidery pattern! Share your creations on social media with #threadunraveled.
