If you're a fan of creepy crawlies, you'll love this free cross-stitch critter design! The simple yet colorful beetle pattern would make the perfect addition to any tea towel, or even a bold stand alone design for your next hooped wall hanging. Genevieve Brading, UK based, is the designer behind the brand Floss and Mischief. It all started because her boyfriend wanted to fill their house with very on-trend stuffed and mounted insects, but she put her foot down as it was just too creepy. As a peace offering she designed and stitched some cross-stitch beetles for him. Since then, she's been designing many cross stitch projects, either in the taxidermy trend, but also more contemporary patterns.
