This is the Bug Box, my new YouTube project that you can follow by subscribing to my YouTube channel and going to the Bug Box playlist. The videos are free to view, but if you wish to purchase a materials kit from me please click here. The video tutorials for the insects and foliage are being published at the rate of one every week from July 2021 and therefore by November 2021, all the videos will be live on the Bug Box playlist on YouTube. The project features 34 different embroidery stitches across the 19 hexagons, introducing stitches such as Roumanian couching, Ceylon stitch and Fishbone stitch. The embroidery can be worked in either an 8" or 10" embroidery hoop and is pictured here in a 10" hoop. The embroidery itself measures 17 cm x 19 cm.

I have used Linen Normandie fabric with Stef Francis pure silk threads, listed here, but you may of course choose to use different fabric and threads that you may have available. You can download the outline hexagons pattern free below.
