It started as flat coasters with basic colors then progressed to intricate patterns and pictures and morphed into 3-D creations like a little jewelry box I made for my mommy one Mother’s Day and tissue box holders for my Gran’ma.

What’s so great about plastic canvas is that it can be adapted for kids of all ages, promotes fine motor development and is great for an introduction to sewing. But unlike traditional sewing or even cross-stitch, plastic canvas is much easier for little hands to handle.
And recently they’ve begun their own flat plastic canvas crafts with kits they’ve received as gifts like these awesome plastic canvas kits for kids (affiliate links):
Plastic canvas can be used to create so many different things from small coasters to larger things like pictures or messaged wall-hangings or even boxes and toys.
And you can fill in the entire plastic canvas with yarn or used colored canvas and only decorate it. Plastic Canvas really is a do-it-all craft!
