I started a different project first and originally wasn't a plastic canvas fan. I was using a needle that was too big and I started with a huge project with large areas of a single color.
I switched to the blocks and played around with different stitches. Plastic canvas is nice because you can stitch it go quick. For large areas you can stitch over multiple holes instead of a normal stitch of doing just one. I found that cotton yarn was the perfect weight.

But I think the needle made the biggest difference. I was using a big one that worked, but it was a pain to pull through. I went and bought one specifically for 7ct plastic canvas and it was so much easier!

I would be sad to send it away, too!  It's so beautiful.  Congrats on being a featured project!

Thankfully the pouch I got for the swap is really gorgeous, so that took away the pain a little.  Cheesy

I am making a hexagon iPad sleeve right now for myself to keep.

I LOVE these! I've wanted to try painting on fabric before stitching but haven't yet. I love how vibrant the colors are, and they have so much personality!

I participated in a plastic canvas blog hop and I made baby blocks. I had never used plastic canvas before but I really enjoyed it. I stitched on them with cotton yarn and stuffed them with polyfil and put bells inside.

I have a PDF of all the patterns for the different designs on my blog. http://hugsarefun.com/plastic-canvas-blog-hop-baby-blocks/

This is such a simple idea that turned out great! I've been learning how to sew lately and have been eyeing quilting projects for my scraps. Do you know of any good tutorials on paper piecing that might help out a beginner?

I love this tutorial

I'm using 1" hexagons mostly but I've done some 3/4" and 1/2" ones. They're perfect for scraps.

I made this little bunny embroidery hoop out of felt and embroidered some little details on it.





I posted a pattern for the felt bunny on my blog, but I also posted a version for an embroidery pattern. You can get them here. http://hugsarefun.com/free-bunny-pattern-felt-embroidery-hoop/
