Hey there, fellow plastic canvas crafter!


In just a minute, I've got another great FREE plastic canvas pattern for you!


But first, here's some good news for you - especially if you're one who loves to hunt on e-Bay and other sites for older, classic and difficult-to-find plastic canvas patterns.


I now have over 540 older, classic and difficult-to-find plastic canvas patterns listed on my Etsy Store -


-- including some of the older patterns from Annie's International Plastic Canvas Club!


You can search e-Bay every day for months and never find some of these awesome classic patterns!


A Treasure Trove of

Classic Plastic Canvas Patterns!


I've pulled these from my personal treasure trove of classic patterns and listed them on my Etsy Store, in categories, to make it easy for you to find exactly the classic patterns you're looking for.


These are not photocopies of old patterns.


In every case you get the actual original pattern straight from its original source.  Some are from plastic canvas books.  Some are from magazines I've collected over the years.  Some are from leaflets.


Because these are original patterns, once one of these patterns is purchased iit's gone from my Etsy Storefor good.


(In very rare cases I may have a duplicate pattern, which I would re-list.  But that is the rare exception rather than the rule.)

Plus You Can Win FREE Patterns While You Shop!


Hey, I'm not done yet...not until I tell you how easy it is to win FREE patterns when you shop mmy Etsy Store collection of classic and hard-to-find patterns - /p>


-- by playing my "Winning Hand" card game!


You see, some of my listings will have a picture of an Ace from a deck of playing cards.  (You'll see the Ace after you click on the display photo of the pattern to go to the pattern description page; see an example of what to look for by clicking here).


When you buy any four patterns with the Ace playing card in the listing, you'll then have a Winning Hand.


Each Winning Hand gives you a FREE PDF PATTERN of your choice. That's right! All you need to do is go to mmy Etsy Store, and look for the Aces in the listings when you shop.  If you buy four patterns with Aces in the listing, you get to pick any PDF pattern of your choosing!


By the way, I'll be adding more and more Aces to the patterns on my Etsy Store  over the next few weeks, so please remember to come back and check frequently.  After all, the very patterns you might want the most could end up with an Ace in the listing!


Also, you don't have to purchase four "Ace" patterns all at once.  You can purchase them individually, over time.  I'll even keep track of your purchases and the amount of Aces you have, and I'll notify you whenever you have a winning hand, so you can claim your free PDF Pattern of your choice!


As Promised:

Here's Your FREE Plastic Canvas Pattern!


Do you love to play cards? 


Well, how would you like to make a simple, yet elegant plastic canvas playing card holder? 


It's so easy to make, you can probably do it in a single day.  SSo why not make one for every card player in your household?

Here's the link to the materials and stitching instructions for this nifty little project: 


Making these handy little playing card holders is sure to keep you busy for a while...and your fellow card players will love you for it!

Best regards, and Happy stichin'!
