Free Friday: Summery Windsock

Happy Monday, everyone!  Yes, I do realize it's Monday and not Friday, but I've been feeling bad about not having a pattern up for you guys lately.  The truth is, I've been having issues with my cubital tunnel syndrome again (aka, pain in the elbow) that makes it very hard for me to stitch and sometimes work at my computer.  But I powered through it the last few days and got a pretty cool new pattern put together!  I hope you enjoy it :)

Summery Windsock

Skill Level:



4 x 18 inches


  • 7-count plastic canvas
  • Red Heart Yarn in colors listed in key
  • Hot Glue
  • Craft Cord
  • Size #1 Barrel Swivel (found in fishing supplies)
  • ¼ inch ribbon in matching color
  • #16 plastic canvas needle


  1. Cut plastic canvas according to graphs. Leaving red section unfinished, stitch piece according to graph. Once finished, hold the two narrow ends together, overlapping red sections, and finish stitching.
  2. Overcast unfinished edges with White.
  3. Use hot glue to attach 9” lengths of ribbon to one open end of the wind sock, spacing them about 1” apart.
  4. Cut two 12” lengths of craft cord. Working on the end of the windsock without the ribbons, attach one end of the first piece of cord anywhere to the inside of the windsock. Slide the other end through the loop on the barrel swivel, and attach it directly across from the first end. Repeat with the second piece of cord so that when you're done, the four ends are attached at all four corners.

I hope you all had a great weekend!  I'm looking forward to a week where I'll start feeling better.
