Plastic Canvas is a wonderfully diverse form of needlework that allows you to stitch both two-dimensional objects such as wall hangings or coasters and three-dimensional creations including tissue box covers or napkin rings.
Plastic canvas designs use yarn stitched on a plastic mesh canvas, though floss can be used for backstitching and other accent details. Like counted cross-stitch fabric, plastic canvas is categorized by the number of stitches per inch, referred to as the “mesh”. The most common sizes are 7-mesh, 10-mesh, and 14-mesh, and the canvas can either be clear plastic or a rainbow of colors.
A great way to get started with plastic canvas is to look for a kit, which will contain everything you need to complete the project: the gridded chart or pattern, plastic canvas, yarn, and any other materials needed, depending on the project.
