DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Frog Cross Stitch Pattern

Slightly more complex cross stitch patterns for children to make.  On 6 count, this would make a nice pillow front (check out the "How to Cross Stitch" directions for ideas on how to make a pillow from a pattern)

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 white 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.


  • printer,
  • paper
  • Embroidery Floss Used:   



    • feel free to substitute colors!
      • If your child wants a brown frog don't get stuck... just substitute brown floss for the chartreuse
      • If you have left over floss lying around you can use that too (ex:  blue for the eyeball instead of dark green)
  • Aida cloth with a low number (6 count Aida is 6 stitches per inch while 10 count is 10 stitches per inch...  The lower the number, the bigger the project ends up being and the easier it is for a beginner to complete)
    • 6 count would give you a 6.7 x 7.8 inch finished project
    • 8 count would give you a 5.0 x 5.9 inch finished project
    • 10 count would give you a 4.0 x 4.7 inch finished project


  • plastic canvas.
  • embroidery hoop (a must! unless you're using plastic canvas)
  • needle (20 or 22 work well, but any that fit 3 strands of floss will do)
