Plastic canvas crafts are fun! I once made a hot-air balloon out of plastic canvas. Took me a whole summer.

ReJeana, what are some of your favorite things to make with plastic canvas?

I love working with plastic canvas-although I haven't done much since getting involved with things online.
I used to make all kinds of things for gifts and to sell. My favorite items are ornaments. I have a pattern for angels that I love to make-but it's harder to find the sequins for the halos and the wooden heads without ordering them from a catalog. One day I'll get started with it again.

I love doing palstic canvas so much I've already been known to have 3 projects going at once. It got so bad that I burned out from it. I recently started up again. I'm making a cute ornament for Maddie for on the tree. I stole the idea from Sharon (seleach).

I love doing plastic canvas. I make a lot of ornaments. Coll, I'm honored that you stole and idea from me. LOL
I also made a whole village which was a lot of fun.

I love to do plastic canvas. I have been doing it for about 25 years. I have done gifts for teachers, families, babies, weddings, birthdays. When I got married in May, I did a bible cover, card box, cake tops, photo frame, photo album cover, guest book, the flower girl basket, and all of my favors. It took me a really long time to do all of it, and I had to stop doing it for a while now because I developed arthritis in my hands, but I am looking to get back into it a little at a time.

I love to do plastic canvas, but have not had time to for quite awhile (keep thinking of picking up my bag and working on the projects I have started tho). Right now, in progress, I have a remote control holder for my DH that I have been working on, (he has alot of remontes), and a fold up doll house for my DD. Really need to get working on them again real soon, lol. I have done alot of things in the past, too many to mention.
