Free Cross Stitch Patterns for Babies
One of the nicest things you can do for a new parent or parent-to-be is to give them a give that is personalized by you. Nothing says personal more than a homemade gift or a partially homemade gift. Every time they look at it or use it they will think of you. They will think of the extra time and effort you put into giving them and their precious new one a one of a kind special gift.
New parents are especially sentimental during this time and will always remember how special a gift they received. Adding a small cross stitch design on the corner of a baby blanket, sleeper, bib or towel is a simple inexpensive gift that will long be treasured. Of course you could go big and cross stitich a baby quilt or make a baby mobile out of cross stitch patterns. You could also go medium and cross stitch a baby sampler, birth announcement or picture to hand on their bedroom wall.
Whatever you decide to do rest assured, the parents will love it. I try to make a baby's first Christmas ornament to add to my baby gift. People love these.
