Welcome to Honeyeater Crafts cross stitch patterns & companion printables!

G’day! I’m Natalie and I live in the leafy suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia. I dream of being able to design cross stitch patterns full-time. Every design you buy helps bring my dream one step closer. So, thank you.

Historical and scientific illustrations and paintings inspire many of my cross stitch patterns. Though there are several modern cross stitch patterns too. All designs are available as PDFs for instant download.

My goals include making embroidery designs available:
- in a range of styles, from counted cross stitch to full coverage pieces,
- for the entire skill spectrum of stitchers, from beginner to advanced embroiders.

*** My design philosophy ***

Search the Internet for cross stitch and you’ll find there are many designers out there. So how do I make my designs stand out from the crowd?

Over the years, I have seen many designs that only look good from a distance. But cross stitch should also look great up close too. With this in mind, I aim to make my designs as detailed as possible. All while trying to strike a balance between: the detail achieved with graduated colours V the total number of DMC colours needed.

My intermediate+ designs also use specialty stitches. Like one-quarter, half, three-quarter cross stitches, blended floss colours (tweeding) and backstitch. While these stitches can be difficult to see from a distance, closer inspection reveals their true value. Three-quarter stitches can create a smoother curve than whole cross stitches can alone.

*** Companion printables ***

I’ve also created a range of ‘Companion printables’. I bet you're asking - "What’s that?" Printable gift tags that have the same imagery as many of my cross stitch patterns. Have you stitched a pattern as a gift? Why not pair it with a matching gift tag to elevate your gift wrapping to the next level?

    I'm a Trekkie - there, I admitted it. But when I'm not watching Star Trek, programming websites, playing/creating computer games, or reading a book, you'll probably find me embroidering a counted cross stitch pattern.

My designs ARE NOT to be re-sold or re-distributed commercially in any manner.

There are no restrictions to offering the FINISHED cross stitch project for free to friends and family.

What's included in the download?

Each cross stitch pattern download typically includes:

• PDF with instructions, design description, thread key/legend, printable charts (symbols on colour, black and white symbols, colour blocks)
• single-page PDFs of each chart type for easier use on devices (e.g. iPad)

Where symbols have been obscured by backstitch and are difficult to read, a chart with the backstitch removed has also been provided as an aid.

NOTE: Digital downloads are PATTERN ONLY - no fabric, floss or other materials are included in this purchase. There are no shipping costs.

Sizing details

The stated 'Design Details' finished sizes DO NOT include margins - when purchasing fabric, please allow enough clearance around the design for framing (ideally add at least 5cm on all sides).
