I've never posted in this Forum before, guys. I believe this is the right spot!

I recently participated in the Super Mario Bros. Swap, and my partner loves Yoshi as much as I do, so I cross stitched her this Yoshi mailbox (from Super Mario World), and hot glued it into a frame.

I used plastic canvas, which is a lot easier to cross stitch on, and I bought a cheapo frame at my local WalMart and just hot glued it to the plain white paper that was already there. It was too thick, so I couldn't keep the glass over it, obviously.

Here are a couple pictures Cheesy

Slightly blurry picture of it in the frame:



Less blurry, closer up picture:



This is one of my first few cross stitching projects, and definitely my first project using plastic canvas. I love the cute little squares it makes.
Let me know what you think, please!

Thanks, guys! It took a lot less time than I thought it would, and that plastic canvas is CHEAP!
I still have like 4 sheets leftover for a couple bucks.
Yay for cheap crafting xD
