Does anyone know where I can get plastic canvas patterns for free? I would like to have a pumpkin for next month. I would appreciate any information. Thanks.

One of my favorite sites is http://www.freepatterns.com/
It's free to sign up and also has several other crafts too, like crochet, knit, paper, etc.
They wouldn't be free but they would be cheap. I just bought a stack of Plastic Canvas magazines for my mother frm a used book store. I also dropped off a bunch to that store that she no longer wanted. Check the stores in your area.
There are some here
I Googled "free plastic canvas pumpkin pattern" and there were a lot of sites that came up. You will have to look through to find which pumpkin you want to make.
Thank you for the info. It was a great help. Issie
I love needlepoint on plastic canvas and have been doing this hobby for years. I would love to get some new ideas, patterns? Any suggestions?
Good luck. My mother does plastic canvas. On a rare occasion she finds patterns at some of the craft stores: Hobby Lobby and Michaels have a few sometimes. I have also been lucky at finding her patterns in book form at used book stores.
There are several sites online with free needlepoint (called tapestry over here in the UK) patterns, try this one for starters-the guide posts a lot of great info and patterns for plastic canvas, too, and she also posts links to other sources of free patterns on the 'Net:
Your local library is also a good source for free patterns, look for plastic canvas specific books, but also at needlepoint charts, and even cross-stitch for patterns and inspiration. I've used needlepoint and cross-stich charts for plastic canvas patterns for years:)
Try www.Freepatterns.com, or www.Allcrafts.net (click on free patterns)
www.everythingplasticcanvas.com has lots of very reasonably priced books, leaflets and supplies
www.anniesattic.com also sells some plastic canvas kits/supplies
I would like to make a gift for someone, on plastic canvas, of a bowling pin. I was wondering if anyone can help me find a pattern that I can transfer onto plastic canvas or maybe any cross stitch pattern that I can use. Also any information on where I can get pdf instructions on how to sew on plastic canvas, basically doing the lettering. Thanks for any help you can give me.
Does anyone know where I can find a plastic canvas pattern of a man with movable arms?

Does anyone know where I can obtain free plastic canvas play food and other play kitchen patterns? I want to make some for my granddaughter.
Don't know of any free patterns but I can recommend you check out a local used book store. Just recently bought several Plastic Canvas magazines for my mother real cheap. (04/26/2010)
