You may ask what is plastic canvas? Well, plastic canvas is a craft material of lightweight plastic with regularly spaced holes in imitation of embroidery canvas. Plastic canvas comes in various colors and the size of the holes varies as well. The sizes are normally 5, 7, 10 & 14 count, what does that mean? It means how many holes there are in an inch.
Some people may think, oh it’s an older person hobby and other stuff. But, it’s rather fun to make and it is for any age and anyone. You can almost make anything you want with plastic canvas. I’ve seen people make toy house, toy trains and other stuff, it’s amazing what you can make. I haven’t ventured into making that kind of stuff, but I have stuck to making like magnets and wreaths. I also made up some mini magnets that was made with 10 count and sold them at RetroGameCon, they were a big hit and I sold a decent amount of them 🙂
There are a lot of designs you can find online via Google and Pinterest. Also, you can take perler bead designs (which are basically an 8 bit style) and use that to make something with plastic canvas.
I’ve also made a few key chains with plastic canvas, it’s just awesome what all you can do with plastic canvas. I would suggest giving this a try, it’s fairly easy to learn and doesn’t cost much in supplies. I learned by watching videos and reading tutorials I found on Google, so go ahead and give it a try!!!
