Cross Stitch Now I Lay Me

Now I Lay Me Child's Prayer to cross stitch  at

This design was inspired by my dear friend Pauline who wanted to stitch this classic children's prayer for her precious grandchildren. Unable to find a cross stitch design with the wording she remembered from her youth, Pauline contacted me for help. I knew right away that the perfect border would be from a recently released design, "Praise the LORD!". I also found a lettering style that hints at a child's writing, featuring touches of french knots as a ideal compliment to the prayer.

I think that this may be a nice addition to a child's bedroom wall or made into a pillow.


The design finishes to a standard frame size of 8 x 10" based on 14 count Aida or 28 count Even Weave or Linen (over 2) 20.3 x 25.4cm - 140 x 112 stitches. No Custom Framing Needed!

Charted in 8 colors, either DMC or Anchor, this fanciful floral design looks wonderful stitched on white or vintage colored fabrics, especially linens.
