Baby at the Zoo (large pattern)
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY PERRETTE SAMOUILOFF
Baby's having fun on his first visit to the zoo. Spot him holding a red balloon among the giraffes, elephants, lions, parrots, monkeys, bears and all other wild animals.
Designer Perrette Samouiloff has created a very sweet composition of animals and children that will lend itself well to plenty of different applications for babies: you can stitch the pattern as a whole or use elements to decorate bibs, afghans, T shirts (using waste canvas), terry towels and many more items that will make great gifts.
There's some interesting detail to stitch such as the peacocks crest (woorked in longstitches and French knots) as well as the parrots beaks ( worked in three-quarter stitches). These are the kind of details that provide extra definition and will make the piece stand out once stitched.
