You will need to refer to the Carrickmacross Lace sampler instructions for how to work the particular stitches on the bee such as the starting and finishing the thread, couching, buttonhole bars, cutting and the picot edge.

I recommend working several of the samples from the Carrickmacross Lace Sampler kit prior to working the bee to familiarize yourself with the technique, for neater results.

Carrickmacross Lace is an Irish form of fine white work was the inspiration for Kate Middleton’s wedding dress. The technique is similar to English Fine White Work but is simpler and does not need to be worked in a frame or hoop but just in the hand. It is a fun technique because of the dimensions it creates due to cutting away of the cotton organdie to expose the net or open spaces.

I am offering free on-going critique with this kit…..you can email me at any time if you have questions or would like me to critique your embroidery.


Embroidery Size:

  • 3 inches (7 1/2 cm) across

Description of Fabrics:

  • Cotton Organdie: Is a firm, closely woven fabric that does not fray easily. It is important to use the correct fabric for Carrickmacross lace. Do not use organza fabric or a fine cotton fabric as the fabric will fray too easily and the embroidery will fall apart. A piece of cotton organdie comes in the kit and you can also purchase extra for other projects.
  • Honeycombe Tulle (Net): Has very even hexagon shapes to the holes in the net which looks pretty when decorated with net patterns or on its own.
