Cross stitch birth records include the baby’s name and birthday. Some even include space for weight. Therefore giving this gift before the birth of the child is nearly impossible. The only way you could give it to an expectant mother at her baby shower would be to finish the picture only. Leave the name and birth date off and ask the mom to return it to you to add that information later.
If you know she enjoys cross stitching, then she could easily add the name and date herself later. Or, perhaps you could simply give her the kit itself as a gift.
Because these kits can take a bit of time to stitch, I would recommend having the picture part completed in advance regardless. Then add the birth information before giving it to the new mother.
Beautiful Cross Stitch Birth Record Kits
Vervaco Into The Woods
Sampler Cross Stitch KitThese days you may well know the gender of the baby before they are born. Years ago, I most often selected a kit that would be appropriate for either a boy or a girl. Usually one that featured baby animals. The baby animals are still my personal favorites, but any sampler is beautiful in a nursery.
Nursery rhyme birth records are also extremely popular! It is hard to beat a well-known character that is loved by multiple generations.
The kit pictured on the right, “Into the Woods”, includes 14 count white aida fabric and the floss you needed to finish the beautiful picture. The frame is not included.
Completed size is 11¼” x 14″
