It’s starting to feel like spring here already, so I was inspired to stitch with some bright colors on this spring bee embroidery pattern. To offset the bright colors, I chose a more natural-colored fabric for the background, and I really love how it looks together. I almost added a small word “spring” between the red flower and stem on the right, but decided against it this time. The bee kinda made it seem like it didn’t need extra.

To make this spring bee embroidery pattern, you’ll need:
- free spring embroidery pattern (instructions to download are at the bottom of this post)
- 7 inch embroidery hoop
- natural colored fabric
- embroidery floss (Colors listed on the pattern.)
- embroidery needle
- transfer materials (I used FriXion pens. Take a look at some other methods on my How to Transfer and Embroidery Pattern post.)
My favorite part is the little bee. The stitches on his back are labeled as a satin stitch, but I varied the length of them to give him a textured look.
I wasn’t sure how to differentiate between petals on the red flowers, so I opted to just do the stitches on the bottom petals in a different direction. Alternately, you could choose a slightly darker shade of thread for those petals. I kind of like the texture this adds though.
