We are delighted about the birth of the royal baby! The new little prince was born Monday, April 23, 2018 and weighed 8 lb. 7 oz. The world caught its first glimpse of the newborn later that day as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge descended the steps of St. Mary’s hospital in London. To celebrate, we’ve gathered together some of our favorite royal-inspired baby patterns and embroidery designs. These ideas are perfect for sewing something special for your own little prince or princess.
Little Prince pattern: This dapper outfit is perfect for a summer baptismal or blessing ceremony. Designed by Kris Richards of South Australia, the crisp white waffle is trimmed with pale blue check mini piping to complement the simple smocking design and tailored styling. A cute matching beret and shoes complete the set! The pattern includes sizes newborn, 3 and 6 months.
Prince and Princess embroidery: Embellish a special baby gift with these sweet machine embroidery designs. Featured in the Words and Ornaments collection from our 2014 Internet Embroidery Club collection, these words can be stitched on baby garments, accessories or nursery decor.
