Look out... I am making things with plastic canvas now.
I'm pleased as punch to report that I've been diving into plastic canvas in earnest since New Year's weekend. And here's what I've made so far!
This little robot couple stands about 6" tall. The boy robot is built from 38 small pieces of PC, and his ladyfriend required 22 pieces. They also used up the better part of five skeins of pearl cotton.
Along the way, I needed to solve many construction challenges, and it turns out K. is a genius at PC engineering. He designed this domed head - how cool is that?
He also came up with the concept that led to this curvy ladyfriend torso. Really, the PC will go waaaaaaaay beyond boxes with a little creative manipulation.
I'm using the 10-count canvas here, which has better flexibility than the bigger stuff most craft stores carry. The smaller holes give you many more options for shaping.
I'm pretty stoked that they stand up by themselves, too.
I'm already hard at work on my next PC project – it's something extremely nerdy, and I'll share its progress as soon as I've acquired the many new floss colors I'll need in order to make it happen.
