Waste canvas is totally a pain, but in the end, waste canvas projects look great!  Good job!

Boldly going where others have probably been.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Thanks everybody! The pattern is from Rainbow of Stitches. Waste canvas is just like Aida cloth but rougher in texture and for me at least, a little harder to work with. I want to stitch on all my clothing now.  Cheesy

Lovely. That could not have been easy on a sweater. I think the stitches look great.

That is beautiful! I always say I'm going to do something (?) on my plain sweaters. Maybe I'll have to try this. Love it.

Waste canvas is supposed to pull right out if you wet it, but I'm always struggling with it and yanking with tweezers.

It's such a pretty design and makes for a sweet, girly sweater. I don't see a bit of wonky stitching!
I hate me some waste canvas too! MareMare, waste canvas is a loosely, but evenly woven fabric designed for you to lay over things without an evenweave (like knits and denim) so you can stitch designs easily onto it, and then the canvas can be cut and pulled away. It's not as easy as they make it sound.  Cheesy
