We now have a cross-stitch pattern for the Ranger Bill patch. I have posted the pattern on our Facebook page. The lettering is not visible in the Facebook preview function online. You will have to download the file and open it in Excel to see all the details of the pattern.
The pattern is good for making either the green or the white patch and makes a great craft for younger cross-stitchers. The pattern is designed for 14 count cloth to make a roughly 3-1/4 inch square patch.
Have fun! And let me know how your cross-stitch comes out.

I have drawn up a cross-stitch pattern for the Ranger Bill patch which can be used to make either the green patch with white lettering or the white patch with green lettering and tan border. I am working on an Excel spreadsheet of the pattern that I will post on our Facebook page. I will be happy to mail a photocopy of the patch pattern at your request. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for your pattern.
