A frenzy all over the world began when Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, confirmed she was pregnant. And it kept growing until in a hot summer, on July 22nd 2013, baby Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born in Paddington St. Mary’s Hospital, London, while his proud dad William, the Duke of Cambridge was with Catherine in the delivery room. I love this couple, they’re so in love (and that’s the most beautiful thing of them) and down to earth. SO, as a stitcher and a designer, what better occasion than this Royal Baby birth to create a souvenir?
I decided to take my inspiration from Willam and Catherine Wedding Cake Box. In the United Kingdom wedding cakes are made to resist (really!), and it is customary for the bride and the groom to keep the upper part of the cake for the Christening of their first born child. Slices of the cake are also given away on the wedding day as a souvenir.
So, my chart has the same colours and border of the box, in the four corners you can see the four flowers representing the United Kingdom (from up left, clockwise: rose from England, thistle for Scotland, daffodil for Wales and Shamrock for Northern Ireland), a crown, the baby name and birth date, with the parents initials on right and left sides. It is a simple sititching, but a timeless keepsake.
I finished it with light blue polka dot fabric, not only because I love polka dots myself, but also as a nod to Catherine’s Jenny Packham dress she wore while leaving the Lindo Wing two days after giving bird to baby George!
Also, as I think that ALL babies are royal and special, I stitched the souvenir with two other baby names, in other fabric colours, you can take your inspiration to create your very own birth souvenir for your son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter, nephew, niece, friend’s child…up to you!
TIP: you can substitute the flowers in the corner with charms, buttons, or for example you can stitch the same flower in all corners ( I would stitch four shamrocks myself!)
There is an “empty” chart, where you can write down the name and initials to stitch, as well as alphabets for the name, the parents initials and the date of birth, so you can personalize it.
You can avoid to stitch the parents initials if the baby name is too long! Again, up to you.
HAPPY ROYAL STITCHING!
