Remembrance or Veteran's Day Cross Stitch Patterns

Lest We Forget poppy cross stitch patternContributed by Leanne Guenther

A beginner cross stitch pattern for children to make for Remembrance Day or Veteran's Day!  The pattern works well as a bookmark on 11 or 14 count aida cloth (though those counts are a bit harder for the kids to use as the stitches are smaller).  It also makes a nice picture on plastic canvas or 6 count aida (terrific for beginners!).

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.
