Children can also trace the totempole patterns onto multicolored foam sheets or colorful felt cloth to create soft totems and ethnic theme masks. Create treasured gifts and family heirlooms to hand down to future generations with needlework and embroidery on pillows or tapestry.

Totempole craft patterns and templates may be used for teaching children a variety of crafty skills. These coloring book patterns can easily be applied to scrollsaw woodworking to make splendid wooden ornaments and decorations. Totem designs can just as easily be used for embroidery, needlepoint, crochet and other cloth artwork or make impressive-looking latch-hook rugs and wall hangings.

Apply these patterns to glass etching techniques or creatively sponge paint stenciling designs to trim your walls or ceramics or decorate wooden furniture.
