The following web page has 3 pictures of birth announcements (with text) to look at:

On do a search for birth announcement; you should get results of two pages listing the following.


  • It would probably be easier for you to just do the search and view the two results web pages (with text and images) rather than clicking on all of the individual web pages I listed below.
  • I only listed counted cross stitch, not stamped cross stitch.   Did not include any Disney Pooh.

Note:  The following web page has larger images of a few patterns listed above (you can see them better); located in UK:

  • 'Honey Bears Birth Announcement'
  • 'Button & Bows Birth Announcement'
  • 'Baby Witzy Birth Announcement'
  • 'Sleepy Bunnies Birth Announcement' 
  • 'Sleepy Time Friends Birth Announcement'

* This not a list of all of the birth announcements that are on the Internet.   It's only a list of those that appealed to me.

The following is not a birth announcement, but I want to keep a record of the web page in case my grand-niece would like this design done for her some time in the future.  It's such a cute bear design for a little girl.
