Plastic Canvas

This relatively new craft has received its name because the canvas used is, obviously, plastic. This material is quite durable. The stitches used in this craft are needlepoint stitches. The only real difference between needlepoint and plastic canvas is the type of canvas. Needlepoint is worked on a softer, more pliable canvas. Plastic canvas can be covered with a variety of needlepoint stitches to make fun items like magnets or key chains. It can also be used to form decorative coverings for very practical objects such as tissue boxes.
