Antique style birth announcement pillow.
Lindsay Lane Designs tells us: "In the 18th Century these birth pillows were fashioned with straight pins instead of cross stitch. They were given as gifts to the new parents and hung on the front door of the home to announce the arrival of the newborn."
The stitch count is 98 x 80.
The model was stitched on 35 count hand dyed French Vanilla linen from R & R Reproductions which is no longer available. We suggest stitching with a 36 count hand dyed linen from R & R Reproductions as a suitable replacement. Model was stitched using hand dyed Florimell silk floss from Gloriana Threads.
