Well, what my best friend does is she finds a floral design she likes by searching for 'flower designs' or 'whatever designs' on Google. Then she prints them off and then she takes a very sharp pointed pencil and sticks a hole in the paper she has pinned onto the cloth she is going to embroider on and then she pokes the pencil through making lines of dots. . to follow with her stitching. I hope this helps. Oh, sometimes she uses color books to do this with.
Good luck.

Where can i find free patterns for embroidery by hand.

Michaels has some, although several of these are ribbon embroidery or use templates you have to buy:

http://www.michaels.com/art/online/projectlist?categoryid=31

This site has a few designs.
http://www.berlinembroidery.com/freedesigns.htm

This site might have some stuff, but it's not working for me right now.
http://www.needlearts.com/

And here's one jacobean crewel work sample: http://crossstitch.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?zi=1/XJ&sdn=crossstitch&zu=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.embroiderersguild.org.uk%2Fstitch%2Fprojects%2Fcrewel%2Fcrewel.html

Another thing you can do is to take a line art design and copy it with a xerox copier, or print it with a laser printer. These both use heat sensitive toner, which can be transferred to fabric just like an iron-on design.

Google image searching on "line art" will get you a good sample of line art images to play with.

My wife always pay for these applique and I want to know how to make some for her. She has a Husqvarna Viking Designer Topaz 20 and the 5D embroidery extra program.

I have a Topaz 30, new to me. I do not believe that it's possible without knowing how to write the computer program that would be compatible with the 5D software. There is also likely "licensing" protection for the software by Husqvarna.

I find that many of the patterns for sale are very inexpensive for single patterns. Have you visited: Embroidery Library? Some patterns I've purchased for as little as $1. Once I purchased a few items, they began to send me sales items, free patterns etc.

My mother has a Husqvarna embroidery machine and we downloaded some free patterns and had to unzip them, I am not quite sure what to do from here. I know that we use .HUS files and they go onto the floppy disk but when I put them on there it doesn't read it on the machine. Not sure what to do, please help!

Here are some videos on how to unzip embroidery designs and free unzipping software. http://apexembdesigns.com/faq . If that does not work email the site and they will unzip for you.
