A charming menagerie of animals inspired by Byzantine and Greek folk art, each animal sits atop a traditional folk embroidery border. Worked in cheery shades of turquoise, teal, green, terra cotta, and yellow, this design can be finished as a child’s quiet book or as a wall hanging. Each animal can also be worked independently for smaller projects such as pincushions, stuffed toys, or as mini framed art!


Finished size:            Quiet Book—4-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches

Wall Hanging 9 x 22-1/2 inches


My high quality kits come with everything you need to make the embroidery--our Mikini 26ct in ivory, DMC floss, full color SOC (symbol-on-chart) pattern, along with a John James size 24 tapestry needle. The raw edges of the fabric are serged for your convenience, so you can start stitching as soon as you open the kit!


Please note that the kit does not come with either the cover fabric, button, or interfacing for the quiet book, or the lining fabric or tapestry rod for the wall hanging version.
