Roll into some fun with this modern typographic cross stitch pattern featuring the words "Let the Good Times Roll." A little mobile crane sits at the top, but if you have a child who loves a different truck there are 5 design alternatives provided (a dump truck, digger, concrete mixer, garbage truck, and fire truck). This little pattern will add some of that handmade charm to any child's bedroom, and make an excellent gift. It uses DMC floss, cross stitch, back/straight stitch, and french knots.

This is a digital PDF cross stitch pattern, which means it will be available immediately after purchase (yay!). Watch for a downloadable link sent to your email after your transaction is complete. You can print it on your home printer (or at a copy shop), or view it on your favorite digital device.
