I love plastic canvas, and Im actually working on a rather large item... a fashion doll fashion carrying case thing. From a book. But beyond that, any ideas for what to make with plastic canvas? Items that arent "old lady" things... like typical tissue box covers, and magnets...

Any ideas? Im obsessed with looking at pattern books on ebay.

I found a pattern for a fashion doll castle. The thing is MASSIVE. Its pictured next to an older girl (bad with guessing ages), and its as tall as she is from her waist to the top of her head! 2 stories and 3 rooms wide. This trunk Im making pales in comparison, and its taken me ages. I think that if I started that castle now, maybe I could finish bit by the time I had grandchildren.

And then god forbid I had only a grandson. I would be like, "YOULL PLAY WITH THESE DOLLS, AND YOULL LIKE IT DARNIT!".

If I had $35 to spare (yeah thats how much it is) I would so buy the pattern book (144 pages) just to see if I could ever complete it in my lifetime. Haha.

A little handbag for a doll or a little girl.
A jewel box.
A treasure chest.
Doll furniture.
A fort, castle, barn - to fit small toys for boys or girls.

I once made a set of "paper dolls" for my daughter.
For the dolls and the clothes I used the thin canvas that almost looks like perforated paper but is made of plastic. It's usually stocked above the plastic canvas racks/piles and comes in a package.
Use a regular paperdoll for the pattern.
Then I made a whole pile of clothes for them.
Finally I finished it up by making a decorated box out of regular plastic canvas to store it all in. She loved it and played with for years.

I was off to save the world....until I was distracted by something shiny.
