Needlework: Baby Crewel Work






Here is a sample of some crewel work I did when my children were young.   Concentrating on knitting as a pastime at the moment. But this is nice way to document a baby's birth and something they will always have. I did have them professionally framed under glass and the colors have held up perfectly over the years.

Very cute and I love how colorful they are. My oldest has one that a friend did and it too, has held up under glass for 22 years.

I love those needle points for babies. Great idea getting them framed so they last!

Marianne said...

These are beautiful. I still have some my grandma made for me when I was a child and my children even has some that she had started and I finished after she died before they were born. It is so special to them and to me to have them hanging in their room.
Thank you for sharing.

You did such a beautiful job on these crewel work pieces! And you're right, they are a great way to document a birth or even a marriage!

Thanks for the memories. I did a cross stitch of the last one - babies don't keep. Mine are now 30 and 33!

Anne Maskell said...

Your work is beautiful! I've never done crewel work, only cross stitch. Your children are so lucky to have these works of love!

Kristi said...

Wow! These are awesome! I'm just now trying to pick up embroidery and eventually move into working with yarn for crewels.

I think I've mentioned this before, but I'm a knitter too. :-)

Thanks for sharing this at Favorite Things Friday!

I was entertained to see the baby's don;t keep one that is still in my closet .. and I liked the one for Joanne Elizabeth in 1981. I have one for my Elizabeth Joanne also born in 1981
