Queen Bumblebees - cross stitch bee pattern
A counted cross stitch pattern showing three of the most common species of bumblebee in the UK: white-tailed, red-tailed and tree. Worked on 16/32 count fabric it fits perfectly into a 5-inch hoop or you could stitch the bees separately for small projects such as greetings cards, coaster, pin cushions and much more.
Includes charts for stitching all the bees together and each one separately. Each bee is really easy to stitch and is perfect for small items like greetings cards, pin cushions or coasters. If you like miniature embroidery, you could stitch them on an even smaller scale and make items of jewellery or miniature hoop art pieces.
