A unique gift for new arrivals (and don't forget the older siblings, you don't want to leave them out -- it's never too late!), this birth announcement tapestry is a lovely piece of keepsake art that will be cherished for a lifetime. In addition to new parents, grandparents love having heirloom tapestries for each of their grandbabies (and great grands!) as well. This is the perfect go-to gift for new arrivals, no matter who is buying it -- you'll be proud to gift it and proud to display it as well!

Your personalized custom announcement tapestry will be made to order. Divider lines and framework will be complementary to your theme. If we're matching a previous announcement style for a new baby, please be sure to let me know! If you do not specify a base fabric color, all elements of the design will be paired to match and complement each other as well as the fabric. For best results, fabrics should typically be light tone on tone, light mottling, light *not "busy"!*print or light solid color, although this is not carved in stone because they look really nice on stonewashed denim!

What I MUST know:

Full Name (all of it!)
Date of Arrival
Time of Arrival (don't forget am or pm!)

Other things to let me know:

Base fabric color preferences (if any)
Color(s) to use (or not use!)
Is there a nursery or decor theme?
If there's no theme per se, is there something to play to (or not!) for it?
Are we matching styles with an older sibling or cousin, etc.

Things to consider & alert me as needed:

Thinking of the parent(s) of the child and the home decor ... Perhaps they like things understated ... or maybe their decor is very rustic or very flowery and romantic ... Is Mom a fan of elephants or woodland animals ... maybe she loves (or hates!) daisies ... did the baby's going-home onesie have a giraffe on it ... was the baby born in the dead of winter during a snow storm ... was he a Christmas-time or Halloween arrival ... did she arrive near Easter or Valentine's Day ... are the parents in the military ... do you want birthstone colors and/or birth flowers worked in ... Chinese or Western Zodiac imagery ... you get the idea!

The finished embroidered area will be about 9x12 [230x300] overall (or 12x9 [300x230] if you prefer a horizontal layup). If you need a specific amount of extra fabric around the design, let me know. If you don't specify I'll just leave an extra border all 'round. (Approximately 12 x 16 +/- overall.)

Please note: Turnaround on this item may be as long as three weeks depending on how many orders are ahead of you in the queue. Each detail -- word by word & letter by letter! -- must be custom digitized for your tapestry. I promise to do my best to make it worth your wait! :)

Your purchase is unframed, and will be sent to you via USPS first class mail in a large envelope.

I am so impressed by this! The quality is great, I was kept in the loop the entire time that it was being worked on, and it came out better than I ever imagined! I approached Kathleen asking is she would be willing to make a wall hanging containing a quote and a rooster beneath it, and left all the rest up to her, giving her pretty much entire creative freedom. I could not be more in love with the end result- it is gorgeous and perfect for displaying the family motto. I received my order fairly quickly, only a few weeks after placing my it. If I could give more than five stars, I would.

I love my tapestry so much!! Cannot recommend Kate enough. She worked with me every step of the way, was happy to re-do anything if I wasn't sure about a design aspect, and was just generally so kind and patient with me. My best purchase on Etsy by far. Can't wait to order more from Kate in the future.

Photos do not do this work justice! As always I am blown away by the quality and attention to detail put into each of Kathleen's creations. I am the proud owner of at least a half dozen things she has made, and I'm never disappointed!!

The 3 wise monkeys were in colors of my choice and they just pop out in person. The brown fabric and the frame design were the choice of the artist who selected the perfect match. It looks amazing on my wall and it adds to my collection of the Wise Monkeys I have in statues. If you have a design in mind just give it a shout out to Kathleen and if she can make it you will be holding magic in your hands!!
