This Fokker DR-1 WWI airplane cross stitch pattern is perfect for those with an interest in historical and World War I era planes. This could also be used as a needlepoint or quilt pattern. It's bright colors and clean lines would be welcome in any media room, office, or kids room! It's one of a set of 9 airplane designs available through Ancora Crafts.

These airplanes are probably as traditional a design as you ever will see on Ancora Crafts, however, there's a nice story behind them…

My Grandfather had an old baseball style jacket that featured the nine airplanes in this series. After years of continual use, he eventually wore holes in the elbows, and the elastic trims around the sleeves and bottom of the jacket just wore out. Despite the pleas of his wife, he refused to throw it away. My Mom took the jacket and photocopied the airplanes, then gave the copies to me and I converted them to the charted designs you see now. My Mom and I needlepointed the airplanes onto 32 to the inch linen, which was insanely small, but they turned out lovely. We gave this project to him on his 80th birthday in 1998 (along with a new jacket).

These patterns are being offered individually, or as a group of nine at substantial savings. If you purchase the group of nine, you will also receive the patterns for the Aero Alphabet and Title Block Flags for free! https://www.etsy.com/listing/86337028/cross-stitch-patterns-wwi-era-airplane

These patterns are probably better suited for moderately experienced needlepointers and cross-stitchers. However, we fully encourage any newbies to give them a shot. Carpe diem!

153 stitches wide by 81 stitches tall. Finished size will vary depending on the count of the fabric or canvas you choose. In 16 count, the project will be 9.6 inches wide by 5.1 inches tall (24.3 by 12.9 cm tall) before it's finished in a frame.
