This example of a bell pull can be found on page 84 of my Oriental Cross Stitch book.
This lovely design is sure to draw admiring glances. Linen bands have attractive edges, which can be scalloped or coloured and are ideal for this sort of project.
If you like this then below is another FREE design based on the one in my book that you might like to try. If you don't wish to make a bell pull then each of the motifs can be stitched for other uses. With the Chinese New Year fast approaching on 31st January ( the year of the wood horse) then a small card with a butterfly would be lovely as the butterfly is thought to bring long life, beauty and elegance.
