This star was created by Cindy Howland for The Needle Works here in Austin, TX. Colleen, the owner, has graciously agreed to let me publish it here. You can see it on Betsy Ross below the diagram.
This star can be adapted to fit any shape star. Start at the lower left hand point of the star at 1and go to the point and sink at 2 and so on. See below on the flag. It makes great starfish, too. Happy Halloween from The Needle Works!

If you have any doubts at all about Betsy, this should erase them. Joanne has stitched quite a bit more than I have and you can see the beautiful results. Betsy Ross is from Melissa Shirley's Wild Women series. The stitch guide is by Amy Bunger of Amy's Golden Strand in Memphis, TN.
