Plastic Canvas and Character Fabric Tissue Box Cover
Posted January 9, 2010on:
Rather than steal a copyrighted image to stitch, all you have to do is buy some fabric with your favorite character on it, and work your project around the fabric, as I’ve done with this Tinkerbell fabric.
Not only is this completly legal, but it saves you tons of time because you don’t have to stitch such a big area. You can make these boxes all day long, with no problem, and no copyright violation.
- One Piece 7 mesh Plastic Canvas 13 ½ x 22 ½ (Michaels Arts & Crafts Store)
- Plastic Canvas Needle (Michaels Arts & Crafts Store)
- ½ yard character fabric (Wal-Mart)
Instructions: Sides-(outer section) cut four pieces of canvas 32 holes across x 37 holes down
(Inner section) Cut four pieces 2 holes x 29 holes across x 30 holes down
- Work according to graph, stitching with colors appropriate for your fabric
Outside section Inside section
- If needed iron fabric
- place plastic canvas inside section over fabric, starting at bottom right stitch all the way around canvas making sure your needle goes into fabric.
- Inside section
- Cut off any fabric that stick out past the outer edge of the plastic.
- It is ok for canvas to bend; it will flatten out when you stitch it to the outside section
- Whipstitch the inside section to the outside section.
- Outside section and inside section whipstitched together
- Take a piece of pink yarn and stitch a boarder around the fabric, on the inside section, to help frame the picture.
- Whipstitch all four sides together to make a box
- Cut one 32 x 32 Whipstitch box to top
