Baby Cross Stitch Patterns

Here are 32 bright, engaging, familiar images for your baby cross stitch projects. From bibs to booties to blankets, these colorful designs add life and laughter to baby's favorite belongings.

But those pastels are so pretty, aren't they?

If you've been looking for baby cross stitch designs, you've no doubt found that there are many beautiful, detailed images in the soft, muted, pastel colors often associated with babies. They appeal to adults, those baby blues and pinks and greens and lavendars,  stitched on blankets that look positively lovely folded over the back of a rocker or the side of a crib.

But take a walk down the toy aisle at your local store. Dozens and dozens of different toys have one thing in common--most are made in vibrant colors and shapes that catch baby's attention.

So if you want to make a child's "blanky"--the one they carry around everywhere and have to wait til they're asleep before you can launder it-- make it with bright colors and basic shapes they recognize.

These cross stitch hearts are so versatile because they

  • are stitched in bright colors that catch baby's attention

  • won't be outgrown as babies mature into toddlers
