How can I get this pattern?

I kind of winged the pattern from a picture I found on the internet. Sorry, the best I  can do is send you some detail photos and maybe you can make your own off of that?

I keep getting requests for this pattern. Perhaps I should just write one up.

Hooray for plastic canvas! One of my favorite mediums.

I love this and sooooo want to make one for a classic car enthusiast I know.

Oh gosh, I love this! Did you make up the pattern? It's too cool.
I am also a not-so-secret admirer of plastic canvas. My Gran used to make things with it, cars and entire villages for Xmas and such. It really is versatile. I think I had Barbie furniture from her at one point. I know I stitched a burgundy grand piano for my mum years and years ago. Fun stuff!

I did make the pattern myself. I've made a ton of tissue box covers so the box part wasn't hard. I found a cartoony image on line and ran it through some software to pixilize it. I then translated that into a  cross stitch pattern. Building the box around the image was the easy part.

I'm obsessed with the little villages that people make out of plastic canvas. My SIL is a librarian so I am working on a 3D library complete with books which you can see through the window, chimney, and drop box flap in the front. The roof will be attached hinge fashion so that it can be used as a box to hold stuff! I also have a pattern book for a three foot tall doll house and tons of books for making furniture to go in it! Plastic canvas is a seriously under used medium.

I know that plastic canvas isn't a really popular medium, but I LOVE it! I was introduced a few years ago and became immediately hooked. It's so versatile as an architectural tool. You can make almost anything your brain can conjure up. I've recently made a ton of tissue box covers (because you know, tissue boxes are ugly). For the Big Bang Theory swap I made this tissue paper cover for my swap partner. It's one of my most favorite projects ever. I wanted to share with you guys

My partner thesillyseestress received last week but she's in the middle of a move and said it was cool if I posted pictures of what I sent.

I've really fallen in love with plastic canvas as a medium. The architectural qualities and 3-D possibilities are endless. I've made a few tissue covers over the years but this one is my favorite!

And I made a Bazinga paper cutout and decoupaged it to a piece of plywood. I just happened to have enough material to make two so the other one is proudly sitting in my own craftroom!

nmcakemom07, that is one awesome swap package!

When I saw the  felt on canvas kawaii Raj, I didn't think it could get any better, then I saw the mini canvases and I was like, WOW it can't get any better than that. . . then I saw the Raj doll and I almost crapped my pants. . . I saw the hoop and I passed out from awesome!

.:.Lola.:., please tell me you have some less blurry photos that I can Pinterest the Hell out of! These must be shared with the world.

I received my awesome package from thesillyseemstress last week and I finally found a time where I was at home during natural lighting so that I could take some pictures.

First off the fantastic Soft Kitty Embroidery hoop!



Next I got a hot chocolate mug with a hand written Sheldon Cooper quote. The quote reads, "I'm in such a good mood, I'm actually finding your tenuous grasp of the English language folksy and charming today." Signed by Sheldon Cooper B.S. M.S. M.A. Ph. D. Sc. D . . . OMG right? Too funny! Love it.


My favorite has to be the Bazinga tea mug! It's so whimsicaly awesome! I wish I had her free hand skills.



Anybody know the best way to seal these mugs so that I can put them in the dishwasher? Or should I just suck it up and hand wash?

In addition, I also received some hot chocolate mix and tea as well as some lemonade Mike and Ikes and M&Ms!

Thanks so much Lisa, I hope you loved everything I sent you as much as I enjoyed your package!
