Free plastic canvas pattern for how to stitch a wavy flag.
I was thinking about working up an american flag inspired pair of earrings, and so I set out working on this piece. After completing it, it took me a little longer than I would have liked for a pair of earrings, and was a little larger than I would have liked, though would still make a cute pair.
Alternatively, you could add a pin back to this, add a magnet or use in scrapbooking or on a card.

If you don’t like the way your carried yarn looks on the back of your finished piece, you can add a piece of felt. I didn’t, as I like the way it looks and it isn’t really visible to anyone – but if I were adding a pin back, would definitely add a small piece of felt for an even surface.
