The Carrickamacross Lace Bee embroidery is an advanced design.

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.

There is enough fabric and thread supplied in the kit to work two bee designs.

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.

Kit Contents:

  • Instruction Booklet
  • One Piece of White Cotton Organdie Fabric
  • One Piece of White Honeycombe Net (Tulle)
  • One Spool of White Gutterman’s Fine Cotton Couching Thread

The Fine White Work Songbird is an advanced design.

The beautiful fine embroidery is created by stitching three layers of fabric (two layers of shadow linen with a layer of net sandwiched in-between) are sewn together with surface embroidery stitches. When all the embroidery has been worked layers of linen are cut away from the back or the front of the work.

This will leave some areas with two layers of fabric, some with one layer of fabric and some with just net creating a dimensional look to the embroidery. On the single layer of fabric pulled-work stitches are worked, in the net areas net stitches are worked.
