Just I time for the fourth of July, these patriotic bookmarks are very nice and as an option, you could convert the instructions to make a larger sized banner using thick yarn, or even just paint in the strokes on an even larger banner to display in your yard or patio for the holiday festivities! Ass some small lights around the edge for some more flair!

These look really cool! These stitches not only can be used as bookmarks. I think it also can be used as brooches. They will look so cool on kids' jacket! I plan to make them for my kids. But I wonder where is the pattern for the eagle? I wish to make both designs...

Do you have the eagle bookmark pattern? please....

These look really awesome! This may sound like a silly question, but how do you get the thread onto the plastic canvas? I've never done this type of craft before and I need some instruction on how to actually stitch the thread onto the plastic canvas. Thanks!
