Cross Stitch the Wild

How about cross stitching a gorgeous wild butterfly with full antenna and proboscis?

This awesome pattern is brought to you exclusively with the permission of Faunaverse Wildlife Books and Photography.



Chequered Swallowtail Butterfly cross stitch pattern was inspired by a Faunaverse photograph, taken in the wild. This gorgeous insect is one of the world’s most widespread butterflies and found in many parts of Australia. We just love it’s bold markings, distinct antenna, and big black eyes.

The Project

This awesome shot of the chequered swallowtail butterfly requires 25 DMC colours to cross stitch the texture and shape of the butterfly’s wings and thorax in vivid detail. We’ve removed the background for you, but suggest a wide landscape (light turquoise) with the foliage and flowers sitting on the right margin.
