Plastic Canvas, Cross-Stitch and Embroidery for Fall

[Editorial Note- This an excerpt from today’s newsletter. If you would like to receive our free craft newsletter, you can sign up here.]
National Sewing Month left many of you crafters craving other ideas for what to do with your needles. You asked for more plastic canvas and more free embroidery patterns, so we found them for you.

For Halloween, use plastic canvas to create a Glow-in-the-Dark Bag for trick-or-treaters or spooky home decoration. Complete a Halloween costume with a plastic canvas mask. A simple to make Pumpkin Patch Pin adds great color to any autumn outfit (shown).

If you prefer cross-stitch, create an Autumn Leaves Table Runner from waste canvas, with matching Leaf Placemats. This colorful set is perfect for autumn entertaining. You can also get started on this beautiful cross-stitch Christmas Angel for holiday decorating.

If you’d like to embroider some of those great sewing projects from last month, check out the patterns below or all our embroidery patterns here.
