How To Download and Use Free Embroidery Designs

Not sure how to get started with using free embroidery files you’ve found online? All of our designs are ready to embroider as soon as you download them, no registration is required. But, you will need to complete a few steps!

Find the design you want to use

Browse our free download machine embroidery library and locate a design you want to use for your projects. Each page includes a short description of the design, and it will also tell you what file formats and sizes are included. You can download 100 free embroidery designs in PES, JEF, and DST formats to use in your projects!

Need a different type of embroidery machine file format? Fortunately, converting file types is pretty easy. In this article, you’ll find some free software solutions that can help with file conversion. You can also make embroidery designs bigger or smaller (up to a point).

Download the embroidery file

Downloading the files is easy. There’s no need to register. Just click “download now” on the design page, and your browser will begin downloading a Zip file. This one file contains all the file formats and sizes.

Unzip the embroidery download

A zip file is a compressed version of a folder. Compressing a folder makes it easier to download and share, but you need to unzip the folder again before you can use the files inside.

Go to wherever you saved the downloaded file too, right click on it, and then select “extract all” from the menu. Choose where to extract the files to and a folder should open up showing you the files inside.

Find the correct file format for your embroidery machine

Embroidery machines use different file formats. If you have a Brother machine you’ll need the PES file. If you have a Janome machine you’ll need a JEF embroidery machine. DST is most commonly used in commercial machines, but many home machines can also use it.

Upload the design to your thumb drive

Once you’ve found the right file, it’s time to upload it to your USB stick. When you insert the USB into your computer it should ask you what you want to do with it. Click on that window, and the folder for the USB stick should open up for you.

Find the file you need and then drag it on to the new folder. Your computer should automatically copy the file on to the USB stick for you.

Move the USB stick to your embroidery machine

When the design appears on the USB stick, you should be ready to go. Locate the thumb drive icon in the desktop tray, right click, and select “eject”. Doing so helps to avoid data corruption of the drive. Once it’s ejected, you’re safe to remove it from the computer.

The next step is to move your USB to the embroidery machine, but the instructions here may differ depending on what brand of embroidery machine you have. The instructions for Brother embroidery machines can be found here, but you may need to consult your specific machine’s documentation.
