Stitch an Inchworm Cross Stitch for Your Little One

I originally designed this inchworm cross stitch as another block or square for a cross stitch baby afghan or baby quilt. Then, when looking through all the products now available for cross stitching, I found the perfect item . . . Would you believe that you can cross stitch a design to be inserted into a 12-inch acrylic ruler!

Here's one I saw at Yarn Tree.

This little inchworm can measure more than just marigolds.

You may have to leave off the heart, but these patterns are easily adaptable, and I can't think of a better subject for this product. Consider cross stitching several, end to end, in other bright colors.

Of course, Inchworm can work for other objects, too.
