Kathy's Kaleidoscope Tote And Checkbook Cover 
This Kaleidoscope Tote Bag and Checkbook Cover set is one of my most eye-catching plastic canvas creations ever!
The Tote measures 9"H x 14"W, not counting the extra-long strap that allows you to carry it over your shoulder.


And it's lined with a matching fabric on the inside, making it completely functional for your most important tote needs - take it shopping, to the beach, or wherever!


As you can see, the tote is set off by bold, dynamic colors that will stand out anywhere!  And it's completely elegant inside and out! 


You can even make it with or without the shoulder strap, depending upon your personal preferences.


And take a look at that gorgeous matching checkbook cover -- I don't think you'll ever misplace or lose it!


Together, the matching Tote and Checkbook Cover set are absolutely stunning, and sure to garner lots of attention everywhere you go. So click here if you're interested in buying this unique pattern set in PDF format while it's still on sale for only $5.99.  (You save 30%, next 48 hours only!)

Just Released: My Cache of Hard-To-Find

Classic Plastic Canvas Patterns!


I think you'll be very excited to know that I've recently listed hundreds of older, difficult-to-find patterns on my Etsy Store.


These have been taken from plastic canvas books, magazines and leaflets I've collected over the past 16 years, including some of the older patterns from Annie's International Plastic Canvas Club.


There's a wide variety of rare, out-of-print patterns. And they're not photocopies (I don't believe in breaking the copyright laws).  They're the actual printed patterns, taken straight out of their original publications, which I mail to you by U.S. Postal service immediately upon receiving your order! 


These are classic plastic canvas patterns you probably won't find anywhere else.  And best of all, they're priced right!


So have a sneak peak below at just a tiny handful of the types of patterns available, and then go check my Etsy store to see everything available. 


But I must warn you:  These classic patterns are going fast.  So if you see a pattern you really like, don't hesitate to buy it.


The vast majority of the patterns I've listed I only have one of!  And once they're sold, that's it - they're gone for good!


I'll be listing additional patterns in the future (I'm still going through my 16 year stash of patterns), so be sure to check back at my Etsy Store every week or so.


If this sounds like just the thing you've been waiting for, then your wait is over!  Check out the treasure trove of old, classic plastic canvas crafts patterns at my

Etsy Store today!
Regards, and Happy stichin'!
