Plastic Canvas
Plastic canvas is a type of needlepoint worked on a somewhat firm, but flexible, plastic canvas mesh surface. Plastic canvas mesh can be cut into shapes and be used to create 3D crafts like miniature furniture and tissue box covers. Using a large dull needle and yarn, you work the needle and thread through the holes in the mesh to cover the surface completely and also use the yarn or other fiber to sew multiple pieces of mesh together to make 3D objects.

It is a great way to introduce children to needlework because large plastic, dull needles can be used and children can learn the hand-eye coordination needed to work with needle and thread without hurting themselves. But it also can be elegant and versatile enough for crafters of all skill levels.
