Make a Whale Cross Stitch

This whale cross stitch is a perfect partner to "Dolphins," "Octopus," "Turtle" and "Sailboat." All are naturals for decorating the bathroom. Acrylic dispensers are easy to customize with cross stitch inserts.

And, these images are not just for little ones! I originally designed this cross stitch whale to be used as another block or square for a baby quilt. But both the whale and dolphin images, each encircled with a heart, are great ways to show your love for our planet and all the creatures that inhabit it.

When cross stitched on 11-ct, it will fit perfectly on a pocket. On 18 count, it fits on the corner of your collar. Using waste canvas allows you to put cross stitch designs on most any fabric.
