Round the Ring of Roses Cross Stitch Pattern
Jessie Willcox Smith

Do you remember playing this as a child? Happy children having fun . . . what could be better! An interesting aspect of this illustration is that the children are of different ages, and the older children are looking after the little ones.

This delightful fine-art downloadable cross stitch design was developed from the widely-recognized Jessie Wilcox Smith illustration, Round the Ring of Roses, which she created for the cover of the March 1914 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine. She created illustrations for the covers of America's most popular magazines for more than 15 years. Every month a new Jessie Willcox Smith image would be on the newsstands, and people looked forward to them . . . they loved her art. She painted the universal child!

This design would be lovely as a framed piece of needle art in a child’s room or anywhere in your home. The colors are soft and beautifully muted.

You can have it in minutes after you place your order! It is fully downloadable and comes with a 100% guarantee.
