Cross stitch crafts are so much fun, and one of my favorite ways to put embroidery thread to use. My grandma taught me to cross stitch when I was seven years old, and it’s been one of my favorite crafts since then. Cross stitching is such a great way to relax and unwind after a long and exhausting day!
One of my closest friends is having her second baby in a few months, and she has recruited me to help outfit the walls of her new baby girl nursery. As my grandmother would say, every baby needs at least one embroidered wall hanging! Click the links below for the best cross stitch patterns for moms–new and old!

I dream of dishes with this exact pattern, but I’ll settle for this kind of pattern embroidered on pillows throughout my home. I might just even pair it with that botanical leaf pillow from a few slides back!
