Sepia Baby Jungle Alphabet
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY MARIA DIAZ
This is a very cute, soft-toned alphabet, ideal for stitching a baby's name on any item you can think of, be it a cot blanket, a bathrobe or terry towel set, an organizer with plenty of pockets to keep nursery essentials. Or if you're looking at a simpler project, stitch a baby bib or two.
If you enjoy minute stitching, why not stitch baby's name over 1 thread of needlework linen fabric and create an exquisite padded hanger?
Designed by Maria Diaz, and expert in creating fun children's motifs, the pattern is based on gingham fabric jungle animals. The lion and elephant are very cute but our own favorite is the girafe!
Combine letters to stitch the baby's name. We suggest printing, cutting out and pasting the letters charts to combine them, ready for stitching. See an example (below right) of four letters combined to make the word BABY.
Creative Poppy tip: depending on the order of letters you're stitching, you might want to rearrange the colors of individual letters . There are 4 base colors in various tones of brown and beige. It's very easy to substitute colors as each gingham fabric scheme is a basic combination of a dark, light and medium color.
There are two gingham color ranges to choose from, depending on the nursery room decor. See alternative color scheme below.
