Plastic Canvas Stitch Guide



Plastic canvas has rapidly grown into a well-known and much-loved form of needlecrafting. It's a simple technique that lends itself perfectly for introducing pre-teens and beginners to the joy of creating something with their hands and imagination. This often leads to the desire to learn other crafts, such as embroidery, crochet, and so forth.

A lifetime of stitching tantalizing home decor and personalized accessories are yours for the making, not only for yourself, but for friends and family. Once you pick up a needle and a piece of plastic canvas, it will soon become a constant companion.

Tip: Always bring needle up through the canvas at odd numbers and take it back down through the canvas at the even numbers.
