Wavy American Flag - Free Plastic Canvas Pattern

I was thinking about working up an american flag inspired pair of earrings, and so I set out working on this piece. After completing it, it took me a little longer than I would have liked for a pair of earrings, and was a little larger than I would have liked, though would still make a cute pair.

Alternatively, you could add a pin back to this, add a magnet or use in scrapbooking or on a card.

     - Small Amounts of Light Weight/Sport Weight Yarn - I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Sport Weight Yarn in Red, White and Blue
     - Small Piece of 10-Count Clear Plastic Canvas (Hobby Lobby)
     - #20 Tapestry Needle
     - Opt. Jewelry Pliers - for ease in weaving in final ends.

Material Notes:
     If you decide to work these up into earrings, I recommend the 20mm Stainless Steel Ear Wires from AliCsSupplyShop.

Time Spent:
     I had my flag done in about an hour and 15 minutes.

     1 7/8" Wide by 1 5/8" Tall

Pattern Notes:
     If you need help with cutting or stitching, check out my Small Plastic Canvas Hearts post.

     If you don't like the way your carried yarn looks on the back of your finished piece, you can add a piece of felt. I didn't, as I like the way it looks and it isn't really visible to anyone - but if I were adding a pin back, would definitely add a small piece of felt for an even surface.

Cut out Flag shape.

Work the slashes as continental stitches. Whipstitch around after.

Order I worked:

     1. White Stars, but don't fasten off.
     2. Blue Part around stars and whipstitch. Fasten Off.
     3. White Stripes, but don't fasten off. 
     4. Red Stripes with whipstitch. Fasten Off.
     5. White whipstitch. Fasten Off.
