These cross stitch dolphins have to go wherever baths are taken--from the shallow table top bath on your newborn's changing table, to the kitchen sink (!) and finally in the bathtub itself. Add some other water-loving pals and you have a variety of charts to cross stitch for use in a wide range of bathroom accessories.
Clear acrylic items that accommodate cross stitch include
- dispensers with a pump top for liquid soap, lotions, shampoos and bath wash
- toothbrush caddies and
- useful holders for cotton swabs and other necessities.
This pattern was originally designed and used as another block or square for a baby afghan or baby quilt. But all animal lovers, young and old, can show their love by displaying this heart on clothing.
Be sure to check out these other cross stitch critters to swim with the Dolphins: "Whale," "Octopus," "Turtle," and "Sailboat."
