The bee embroidery kit frequently tops our bestsellers list, and combines some of our favourite things here at Kirsty Freeman Design: bees, embroidery, florals and of course, the colour yellow.
Explore our range of creative DIY kits!
Our bee embroidery kit makes a wonderful gift for a creative friend, or is a lovely project to help you to spend some time relaxing and putting your feet up. Whether you are looking for a creative DIY kit for an avid embroiderer or a complete novice, we hope you love this little kit.
All of the materials that you need are included - you only need to provide a pair of scissors. We pre-print the design onto our favourite linen fabric, so you don’t need to trace the pattern, but can get stuck straight into the embroidery. Behind your linen fabric, you will also receive a piece of backer - this is to add stability to the fabric, and make sure that from the front, you cannot see any trailing threads on the back of your work. You will receive detailed instructions which are printed in an A4 loose leaf booklet, so you can spread them out and see them clearly - these include written directions, our top tips, illustrated diagrams and photographs, which help you through every step, alongside our video tutorials. Wherever possible, we have used UK suppliers to help provide everything that we include in your bee embroidery kit - this includes the embroidery needle, made by John James, the hardwood embroidery hoop, made by Elbesee and the crewel wool, made by Appletons. As we only want to include the most premium products in our kits, our stranded cotton is made by DMC, who are also based nearby in France. To finish off the kit, we also include a selection of orange and black seed beads, along with a bobbin of thin thread and special beading needle for attaching them.
We just want you to have the opportunity to fall in love with embroidery the way we have. Whether you struggle with your mental health, and are looking for a calming activity to do, or loved being artistic as a child and are looking for a creative outlet, we hope that you enjoy creating your own little floral bee design.
The contents of the kit you will receive are:
- 2x Needles (1x John James embroidery needle, 1x beading needle)
- Full Instructions (A4 size booklet)
- Linen Fabric with Pre-Printed Outline
- Backer (to place behind the fabric)
- 6” Embroidery Hoop (Elbesee Hardwood Hoop)
- Threads (DMC Stranded Cotton, Appletons Crewel Wool)
- Seed Beads (Size 11 Toho Seed Beads)

Please note, the scissors shown in the photograph are for decorative purposes only and are not provided with the kit - you will need to provide your own pair.
These kits are so much fun and really accessible for a complete beginner! The YouTube videos you've made to accompany them are super helpful! I'll definitely be buying more :) I recommend them to absolutely everyone!
Beautifully packaged. Lovely top quality kit with everything needed. Great design. Enjoying sewing Many thanks Kirsty x
I wanted something to keep.me occupied whilst in quarantine and thought this would be ideal. I messaged kirsty to explain the situation and she went above and beyond to ensure it was received promptly. Its packaged beautifully and I cant wait to start.
First of all, let me say that it took me a few days to pluck up the courage to open the parcel - it was so beautifully packaged. And once I did, I couldn’t believe how fantastic it was. I’m so used to buying kits from major retailers and they’re not a patch on this. So much thought has gone into it, from the detailed instructions down to the little bobbin of thread for the beads. And the needles as well!! I will definitely be back to buy more! Thank you Kirsty! X
