Plastic Canvas – New For Me

Spook House Kit by Mary Maxim

I started learning needlepoint over 30 years ago but never stitched on plastic canvas. One of my coworkers is a fan and her pieces are pretty cute so I decided to give it a try.

Of course, the project that I “needed” was a discontinued kit by Mary Maxim so it took a little time to track it down. I found it on ebay and just started yesterday. The kit is called Spook House Tissue Box Cover. 

It’s fun!  Just like needlepoint but with a different order. Cut canvas first then stitch … I am still trying to decide why not stitch first then cut.  Regardless,  I am following the instructions – almost.  I am guessing that to save yarn it says to use half cross but even with plastic canvas I just can’t. I know the coverage will not be as good so it is likely that I will run out of yarn. 

I don’t know how long I can keep away from Santa.. I expect to have him back on the frame by the weekend.

  1. Ahhh I love this!! I’m obsessed with 3d cross stitch houses for some reason. Specifically Haunted & Gingerbread. I bought a gingerbread house pattern that I want to turn into a tissue box, but this is too cute ❤
