Benjamin Gets Into Trouble cross stitch pattern is a replica of an illustration in Beatrix Potter’s famous book The Tale of Benjamin Bunny.
Naughty cousins Benjamin Bunny and Peter Rabbit have been gorging themselves on Mr McGregor’s vegetables and are caught-out by Benjamin’s stern father. In this funny scene the two naughty boys are being marched out of the garden by B. Bunny Snr, with sore bottoms and very droopy ears. Kind of reminds me when my father caught me swinging on the clothes line in the early 70s.
This fun cross stitch is a very manageable size. The finished piece measures 26.3cm x 28.8cm when stitched on 14-count Aida cloth, but you’ll only be completing 19,682 stitches. You’ll need 67 different DMC colours to recreate the naughty rabbit cousins. The pattern works perfectly with Pattern Keeper App and there are NO backstitches.
Benjamin Bunny cross stitch is the second pattern in a set of four that illustrate the whole story by Beatrix Potter. You’ll find Peter Rabbit and his cousin Little Benjamin Bunny getting into into trouble from BB’s stern father, as well as Mrs Rabbit and the Flopsy Bunnies. Why not stitch the entire set for your favourite wall space or some cool tote bags?
