Kangaroo Cross Stitch Pattern

This is a simple cross stitch pattern (no words).  It's fairly large, but is only 3 colors making it a nice beginner project for children age 9 or 10 and up who have a fairly long attention span.  This is one that makes a great pillow (see the "How to Cross Stitch" directions for exactly how this is done) and is fun to make as a "team" (mom can stitch some too) or as an older (teenage) sibling to make for a younger sibling or cousin.

To learn more about cross stitching, check out our "How to Cross Stitch" directions.

When I do these projects with the girls, I encourage them fill in the backgrounds with white cross stitch instead of leaving it unstitched.  The long rows of single colored stitches are terrific practice.  But it's completely up to you!  It does make the project take a lot longer.
