This bee-themed cross-stitch pattern features a beehive with bees, yellow flowers, and honey-colored hearts. The word "Beeloved" is centered at the bottom of the design.
The model was stitched on 32ct. Vintage Smokey White Belfast linen (Zweigart).
The stitch count is 124w x 46h, and the finished design measures approximately 7 1/2"w x 2 7/8"h when stitched on that fabric. (16ct/equivalent)
The pattern calls for whole stitches only. (Whole stitches = beginner friendly and Aida friendly!)
The model was stitched DMC floss only.
The pattern includes a black/white symbol page as well as a color page, so you can choose to stitch from the format that works best for you.
RECREATE THE LOOK:
Finish Fabric: The black and white fabric is by J. Wecker Frische for Riley Blake. The fabric is Snow Sweet, SKU C9671.
Cording: The cording is 5mm jute rope.
Bow: The large bow is made from a 2" natural jute ribbon from Ribbon Boutique (Hobby Lobby), SKU 809780.
Button: The button in the centerpiece is a 3/4" coconut button from my stash. It came from a bulk button pack that is no longer available.
The materials listed above are unique to this piece. The foundational supplies (the board, glue, batting, etc.-- stuff you can't see) are the same no matter what I am finishing, so I buy those in bulk and keep them on hand. You can see what those materials are on the Tools and Organization page of this website.
