Embroidery and easter eggs on cream placemat

Easter appliqués

Embroider a cute chicken or a chocolate bunny with a carrot on your table linen for Easter. The appliqué technique is fast plus you can coordinate your designs with the rest of your décor by using scraps of the same fabric. Here are three free designs you can use singly or combine.


Appliqués are quick and easy to make with your embroidery machine. These three designs are great to add a bit of colour and fun to anything from table linen to clothes. The fabric used for the appliqués is your own choice, so you should change the colours of the thread to a matching shade.

Fabric suggested

These can be stitched onto any fabric, bar really light or translucent fabrics. We used pre-made napkins and a placemat.

Stabiliser required

Use a suitable stabiliser for your project according to the fabric it was made from. If you need help knowing which stabiliser would be best for which fabric, read our helpful blog post.

General design notes

When you open the designs on your machine, you will notice that the positioning and tack down stitches are shown as different thread colours from the satin stitch. You can use the colour you want the satin stitch to be for all of these steps. Make sure to hoop your work well and use very sharp pointed appliqué scissors to trim the fabric.
