Repeat rows 1-18 to make the back side of the shield...I just used a solid color.
 You can crochet the star or cut one out of felt and sew it on....whatever you prefer.

To make the Star: with White Yarn & G Hook

Row 1. wk 6sc in the 2nd st from the hook.
Row 2. 2sc in each st-12sts.
Row 3. 1sc, 2sc in the next st-18sts.
Row 4. 1sc in 2, 2sc in the next st-24sts.
Row 5. 1sc in 3, 2sc in the next st-30sts.
Row 6. 1sc in 4, 2sc in the next st-36sts.
Row 7. 1sc in 5, 2sc in the next st-42sts.
Row 8. 1sc in 6, 2sc in the next st-48sts.
To make the first point:
Rows 9-10. wk 1sc in 8sts, ch1 & turn.
Row 11. dec1sc, 1sc in 4sts, dec1sc, ch1 & turn.
Row 12. 1sc in 6sts, ch1 & turn.
Row 13. dec1sc, 1sc in 2sts, dec1sc, ch1 & turn.
Row 14. 1sc in 4sts, ch1 & turn.
Row 15. dec1sc, dec1sc, ch1 & turn.
Row 16. dec1sc and FO.
Reattach yarn next to the first point with a sl st, ch1, wk 1sc in the same st as the sl st.
Repeat rows 9-16 & FO only 4 points.
On the last point attach yarn like you did for all 4 points but wk 1sc in 3sts then continue on making the last point. Do not FO the last point.

Once all 5 points are done, with the white yarn that's still attached ch1, wk 1sc in each st around the entire star, when you get to each tip of each point ch1 and continue on around.
With a tapestry needle weave in all the loose ends of yarn.

Before putting the plastic canvas between the front & back panels...sew the plastic canvas randomly to the back panel...sew the star onto the front panel...then with red yarn put both panels together and work 1sc through both pieces all the way around and FO.

Now take a little red thread and work the needle through both pieces in several places. Being careful not to pull the thread to tight.
This will help make the shield a little more sturdy.

To make the Handle: with Blue Yarn & G Hook
Ch12 & join Ch1
wk 1sc in each st around, repeat until the tube is about
5 or 6 inches long. Wk 1sc through both sides and close the one end and FO. Stuff and attach blue yarn and seal this side closed.
Sew both ends to the back of the shield.
