Today I have a very small and simple pattern for some tiny cross-stitched bees. These are based off the bees for the August flower of the month square, but I’ve altered them slightly and made a pattern for a bee facing in each direction.

These bees are super cute when stitched, I just love their little antennae. I used a three-quarter stitch for the black fractional stitch on the head, but only used half-stitches (one leg of a regular cross stitch) for the wings. Trying to make three-quarter stitches on the wings made them look too bulky and strange. Here are some close-ups on my August flower of the month square showing two of the bees:
I hope you’ll stitch something up with a few tiny bees, and please share with me if you do!
