Yellow-tufted Honeyeater cross stitch pattern
Yellow-tufted Honeyeater cross stitch pattern

A bird cross stitch pattern of a Yellow-tufted Honeyeater (Lichenostomus melanops). An embroidery design inspired by a John William Lewin watercolour from the 1790s.

A mid-sized, black and yellow native Australian bird. It’s habitat stretches across the south-eastern ranges of Australia. Of environmental note, a sub-species of this bird (the Helmeted Honeyeater) is a threatened species in Victoria.

A fun and challenging cross stitch design. This embroidery pattern uses advanced cross stitch techniques. We recommend this needlework pattern for advanced beginners.

A perfect gift for a bird lover, or those creative crafters who love to dive into something new.
