Kids counting animals: 1 Hippopotamus Cross stitch design.

Kids animal counting: 1 Hippopotamus Cross stitch design.


Colour Used in these areas: DMC Number Anchor Number
Black Outlines 310 403
Blue Lettering 3842 1089
Pink Inner ear 3824 8
White Eyes, toenails 5200 1
Brown Iris 400 351
Dark grey Nose, legs in shade, back of ear 317 400
Grey Main body 452 232

This design was drawn originally with Anchor colours in my cross stitch design program. Use Anchor threads to get the closest match to the picture. I used a conversion chart to get the DMC numbers.

Please let me know if any colours are off and I will amend them in the chart.

This is a start of a brand new series for me called Kids animal counting. Half of the fun of a counting picture it to be able to count the number shown. So to start with heres an easy one for the kids: One Hippo.

This picture is cushion sized and may look brilliant with other animal themed counting pictures together in a quilt or in a set of pillows. Alternatively just use the hippo picture in a smaller design for someone who loves animals.
