Trains have been enchanting little ones for ages, from The Little Engine That Could storybook and "I've Been Working on the Railroad" songs in my childhood to the current generation's Thomas the Tank Engine. This is another one of those must-have, timeless toys that finds its way into every child's toy chest.
This cross stitch train pattern was originally designed and used as another block or square for a baby afghan or baby quilt. Combine it with some of the other hearts, like...
Embroider them on plastic canvas and make a mobile to hang above baby's crib (NOTE: when your infant is large enough to reach up and pull on the mobile, move it safely to another location where it can be enjoyed from a distance). Use them around the nursery or playroom to decorate blankets, pillows, crib bumper.
You can embroider them on 3" bands and add them to the curtains.
