DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Mardi Gras Cross Stitch Pattern

One slightly more complex cross stitch pattern for children to make.  On 6 count, this would make a nice little 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.

You can cut the words off the bottom if you don't want to tackle backstitching letters.
