Nursery Rhymes
 

Create a warm atmosphere for babies and toddlers with this classic nursery rhyme,
"Mary Had a Little Lamb," embroidered on wall hangings, crib bumpers, and more.

Available in two sizes:
6.62"X4.85" and 3.85"X3.51"



"Mary Had a Little Lamb," like so many favorite tales, is based on a true story. A little girl brought
her pet lamb to school, and an observer recorded the resulting antics in poetry.

 
Available in two sizes:
5.82"X4.86" and 3.85"X3.21"


American writer and editor Sarah Josepha Hale published "Mary Had a Little Lamb" in May 1830. Since then it's been a beloved children's classic, and its opening lines were the first ever recorded
on Thomas Edison's newly-invented phonograph.

 
Available in two sizes:
6.86"X4.65" and 3.84"X2.50"


A celebration of silliness and joy, "Hey Diddle Diddle" has been
a favorite English nursery rhyme for centuries.

 

Available in two sizes:
6.31"X4.86" and 3.86"X3.79"



"Hey Diddle Diddle" was first published in 1765. Nobody knows where it started -- but it's been connected with everything from ancient Greek to Egyptian mythology.

 
Available in two sizes:
5.63"X4.85" and 3.85"X3.30"


Some say the poem secretly makes fun of the British royalty. Others call it nonsense.

 

Available in two sizes:
6.32"X4.86" and 3.87"X3.57"



Whatever its background, this poem is a classic that will inspire
many lively crafts for babies and toddlers.

 
Available in two sizes:
6.68"X4.86" and 3.86"X3.42"


Stitch a free-spirited pair of "Jack and Jill" designs for the nursery -
they're charming for girls and boys alike!

 

Available in two sizes:
6.30"X4.80" and 3.78"X3.77"



Like many popular nursery rhymes, no one knows where "Jack and Jill" came from -- but it's been around for centuries, and Shakespeare referred to it in A Midsummer Night's Dream.

 
Available in two sizes:
6.80"X3.81" and 3.84"X3.86"


Another classic English nursery rhyme, "Jack Be Nimble" has been around at least since
the early 1800s. Good luck was said to come to those who could jump over a candle without
putting out the flame.

 

Available in two sizes:
6.77"X4.80" and 3.85"X3.02"



Stitch this playful pair of designs on bedding, decorations, and more for small children.
 
Available in two sizes:
6.50"X4.85" and 3.85"X3.44"
