Snow people decoration

I started crafting with plastic canvas seriously when I was reintroduced to it in 2010. I took photos and used those to make stories of how I got involved with the craft and added tutorials at the request of many commenters who wanted to learn how. Some of the first pages just show the projects. Then I started to add tutorials and patterns. I have all the patterns if you see one that you want the pattern, just ask and I will send it to you in an email. I can also post it here and you can copy it from here.
I have also crafted other projects with sewing such as dolls and shopping bags, also listed on the sewing page, as well as crafting with felt.

Here are my plastic canvas pages with other craft projects with tutorial pages. They are not in any order of my published pages.

I started making cloth dolls for myself and for gifts when my kids were small. That evolved into dolls for my grandchildren. Besides human dolls some of the dolls are mythical as well as stuffed animals.

 Embroidery when you are legally blind is very challenging for sure. I have been legally blind since I was a teen. I learned from my Mom and Grandmother how to sew and embroider.
