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.

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.

I'm trying to make up my own patterns for photo frames and gift bags and for some reason can never get the right ratio of stitches. I end up short at the end of a row with not enough stitches to complete the design. I use the 7 mesh canvas.

For some reason I just can't figure out how many stitches to use! I've tried to use graph paper to pencil in the design, but it never comes out right when I'm stitching it. Should the canvas be cut in odd numbers or even?

There are so many sites that offer free patterns but none of them actually tell you how to make your own and have it come out right. I did find a good step-by-step tutorial on eHow that should do the trick for you.


Check this out and see if this will help you get the pattern correct.

She found patterns of Angels which you could use without wings (these are kind of like standup dolls). She found another "princes" that stands and it's base is a jewelry box.


She had no luck in finding either a box or a wall hanging.

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:)

Here is a bowling ball and pin set I have found that is a PDF file you can download. Included are the instructions for you. This is adorable and you can change the color of the bowling ball if you wish.


Dream a Little Bigger has some wonderful instructions and illustrations on what you are looking for. They explain everything you will need to know to make your project and how to sew on plastic canvas.
