There’s no event more special than the birth of a baby, so send your kindest wishes in style with these gorgeous greeting cards designed exclusively for The World of Cross Stitching magazine by Joan Elliott. We can’t think of a sweeter subject to stitch than these cute characters and their tiny animal offspring. From the mother hen with her fuzzy little chick, to the proud bunny mummy and her ‘twice as nice’ twins, there’s a message for everyone.
Each design can easily be cross stitched over a few evenings, making them perfect for beginners – if you’re new to French knots, click for our How to do French knots.
With the pretty pastels of these cards, designs are suitable for both boys and girls. So start today to keep a couple on hand ready for new arrivals, and their parents will treasure your kind wishes forever.
