*NEW* Sampler for Baby

I’m not sure why, with two of my own children and eleven nieces and nephews, I hadn’t yet designed a Baby Sampler. But this last Summer, when my newest niece was born several weeks early, spending the first month of her life in the NICU, I poured all my nervous energy into designing this sampler. She is healthy and growing well now, nearing her first birthday, and hopefully will enjoy having this momento added to the décor in her nursery.

I wanted a Baby Sampler that wasn’t too gender specific, and certainly wanted to stay away from the pastel colors they are usually made up of. This sampler is meant to be traditional in nature, yet with just enough whimsy to make it suited for a child’s room.

I’ve included a full alpha-numeric set with some extra space on the graph for you to be able to customize it for the baby of your choosing. I do hope you enjoy this design.

Stitch Count: 197 x 133
Model stitched on Picture This Plus 40ct. Sand

Using flosses from The Gentle Art:
7019 Pomegranate, 7061 Caramel Corn, 7080 Endive, 7092 Otter Creek
And from Weeks Dye Works:
1230 Havana, 2202 Bullfrog, 2219 Whiskey, 2241 Chrysanthemum

Frame was thrifted then re-sized to fit.

This design is now available in my etsy shop, and will be going out to my distributors and the shops on my automatic shipments list soon. If you prefer to bypass etsy and order directly through me, you can send me an email: beth@heartstringsamplery.com

Very pretty! I will be showing this design to my DIL. My first Grand daughter is coming in June and I don't like the "baby"(bears, diaper, rattles,etc.) samplers. I love your design.
