American Flag Pin
Netscape users, check your print preview, if it shows broken images click  Here

My little girl wanted a beaded American flag pin. And this is what I came up with for her.
It's super fast and simple brick stitch.
You need R,W, and B size 11 beads,
Needle, thread, small "friendship pin" type safety pin.

The second row on this is the foundation row. Work in brick stitch.
Then add the fringe (referring to the picture above) in these counts,
First loop is 36 red beads, second loop is 28 white beads, third loop is 20 red beads.
You can add a small charm to the center like a Cross. I'm probably going to add a black 6 mm faceted bead to mine.
Feel free to print out copies to distribute as long as you don't charge for them. They are freely given.
