I had some of this as a kid and endlessly sewed and resewed bits of it together. Now I know what it’s called (thanks Gina Rahman!) I’ve suddenly found all these amazing things you can do with it!
(See what I’m on about in a previous post.)
Plastic canvas is like embroidery fabric but much easier to use, and can be sewn together to make 3D shapes. Here it is in its ‘raw’ state:
It’s available in squares and rectangles that can be cut to size, and in precut shapes including hearts, stars, circles and hexagons.
Here’s a selection of the kits available from www.e-patternscentral.com. You can of course switch up the colours and designs, I would try to put a modern twist on some of these, but it’s amazing to see the range of designs out there and great for inspiration.
