I love these, they are adorable

Hi Kathy, I think these patterns are great. I printed them out. Also the patterns you madr for me for a tissue box and birth sampler are great. My daughter really likes them. Thanks so much for your help.

every nice i like them all.

Thanks for the nice comments! Glad you like the Christmas decorations.

Great idea. These patterns are lovely!

I love them even though I don’t have a mantle in my room there is one downstairs in the common room. My Wal Mart doesn’t carry floss anymore (which I am sick over) and they seem to be getting less and less plastic canvas no more pattern books either I am totally upset about all of this . I live in an assited Living Home and we only go to Wal Mart Once a month. and I have no other way to get to A.C.Moore’s. I can’t afford to buy via web or even thru catalogs so I am at a loss oh well I tried sport yarn but that is getting pricey too Wal Mart carry’s super skiens of yarn for cheap but not so with sport or even baby yarn. Sorry to unload

Walmart doesnt’ carry embroidery thread any more. Where do you get yours?

I get alot of my supplies from Micheal’s or Ebay.

hi kathy… i appreciate your generosity for sharing your creativity….i like them all!!!! God Bless!

I am going to make these for family and self. Thank you for keeping plastic canvas a fun way to make things.

these patterns are great will print them

Beautifully simple, quick and easy. I have my crafty 7-8 year olds make them. We make 2 of each and attach them back to back for a tree ornament. The girls love to add embellishments according to their whims. Thanks for the patterns.
