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

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!

So cute, so cool, so perfect -- and just the sort of thing to bring plastic canvas out of the mid-20th century and into the new millenium!

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 make a lot of Plastic Canvas (PC) projects.  I volunteer with a group of women and we donate our various skills and make all sorts of hand crafted stuff.  We have craft sales and donate the money to quite a few charities.  I also crochet, sew, cut-paste-and glue.  I make a lot of PC boutique size tissue box covers, ornaments, trinket boxes and some wall hangings.  I'm not tech savvy so I can't do what you do to design my pattern.  Sometimes I can copy something onto graph paper and use that.
I don't know why there aren't more people working with this stuff.  It is really like doing needlepoint just on plastic instead of mesh.  I would like to see more PC projects posted.

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.

love your "Big Bang Theory" tissue cover. plastic canvas is my first craft I ever did. and I still love doing it after all these years. its going on about 22 years now. still remember what I made. it was a rocking horse centerpiece for a baby shower. I've never designed my own patterns. I liked to get the pattern also.
