Free Friday: Star Magnet

Happy Friday, everyone!  Do you have any good plans for the weekend?  Any good Fourth of July picnics or bike rides or barbecues?  My hubs and I are planning on going for another great bike ride.  Our goal is to get across the whole county wide rails to trails bike path this summer, one section at a time.  We've gotten close in the past, but we're really hoping to get it done this year! 

My goal to get lots of free patterns made this week was mostly a success!  I got five(!) patterns made this week, which means I have a whole month of patterns lined up!  Hopefully I'll remember to post them :D 

I realize this pattern is perhaps a tad late, but I figure it's never the wrong time to celebrate our beautiful country, right?  And plus, there's something about the colors red, white and blue that just say SUMMER! 

Star Magnet


Skill Level:

Beginner

Materials:

  • 7-count plastic canvas
  • Red Heart yarn in colors listed in key
  • Magnetic tape
  • Hot glue
  • #16 plastic canvas needle

Instructions:

  1. Cut and stitch plastic canvas according to graph.
  2. Overcast edges using colors of nearby stitches (use the picture above as a guide)
  3. Cut several pieces of magnetic tape to fit on the back of bat magnet. Remove paper from magnets and apply glue to sticky side before attaching to rainbow. This may seem like overkill, but it makes for a very secure bond.

I'm kind of contemplating doing a monthly giveaway on my blog, with my paid patterns as the prizes.  What do you guys think?  Is that something anyone would be interested in?

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and a beautiful Fourth!
