Another Crafty One?? Plastic Canvas Club


My 7-year-old trying a latch-hook craft

So I convinced my friend Sherry to try the Plastic Canvas Club-of-the-Month program through Mary Maxim with me.   I enjoy doing plastic canvas crafts, and I know she likes them too.  This week, I started working on August's craft.  It is a lighthouse-motif Welcome sign.

Love when my package comes in the mail!

Canvas cut.

Last night, when I started stitching some white long stitches, my 7-year-old daughter starts watching me and offers to help.  I show her how to follow a color chart, and make long stitches.  She loved it!  She wanted to do more, but it was getting late.

Work in progress with my daughter's help...

First thing this morning, she is in my room, asking to do some more stitches.  I told her I would find her a project she can work on.  I found a latch hook kit in my project stash.  I figure the repetitive hooking-action is something she can master, and the printed canvas along with the color chart will make it easy to follow.

Happy to craft - still in her PJs.  :-)

She is so excited!  She is quite content to sit and craft for a while.   Maybe I have another crafty one?  Time will tell, but I'm glad to see her interest.  After she finished her first row across her project, she sighs and says "Only 66 more rows to go!"  Spoken like a true crafter.  ;-)

Happy Stitching!

  1. The only way I could ever do latch hook was by sitting on the floor and having my legs hold the sides of the rug so I could pull it through! I'm too old to do that now. I've been sewing up a storm while I've been out of class this summer. Sadly, school starts in two weeks so the machine will sit idle until fall break. I love that you have your daughter crafting. My granddaughters 3-6 years in age love to sew with me. I wouldn't have it any other way!
