These happy picnic bandits found something sweet! This cute modern cross stitch pattern features ants carrying a mountain of tasty watermelon, along with some strawberries and cherries on their merry way back to their colony. Texture is added with back/straight stitches, St. George's Crosses, 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.
