I've seen DS Lite cases made from plastic canvas - the box is constructed from the canvas, and then all the details are stitched on. I think there was one made to look like an old-school N64 controller... Aha!

Hope that can spark some creative thought.

Crochet uses a hook. Pirates have hooks, and they are cool. So crochet is cool because of the hook.

What kind of ideas are you looking for? Anything you really had in mind?

My mom uses plastic canvas to make little cubes (maybe 3" squares) that she puts little jingly balls in and then she gives them as baby gifts. They're block and rattles in one, soft for baby, and really cute. (And not too cheesy!)

Wow, this would interest me as I bought some plastic canvas waaay back in 95 (I think....ish) and never used it! (No, I don't have it now.....I believe it belongs to my ex husband!!)

Hey, maybe use it as a base for a bath mat and use old t-shirts in a rug hooking kind of way?!! (reaching, I know!!)

I bought some the skull set of patterns here awhile back, though I haven't finished any of the projects yet. http://www.plasticcanvascreations.com/patterns.html

I JUST (as in 5 min ago) finished my first plastic canvas/needlework piece. I made this coaster: http://www.tsplace.com/HTML/coaster_pattern.htm

And here are the other assorted links I have bookmarked:
