The finished plastic canvas project measures 5″x5″x5.5″. It fits a boutique tissue box (the square ones).

Using just 2 plastic canvas stitches (continental and gobelin), it is a great project for beginners. It uses only 3 colors of yarn and features cute little sparkly shamrock buttons. I hope you enjoy it!

Creatively Homemade Supplies Needed

Having trouble finding plastic canvas in local stores? I can hardly ever find plastic canvas in my local craft stores anymore. So I buy my plastic canvas in bulk on Amazon.

Stitches Used in This St Patricks Day Plastic Canvas Pattern

This pattern uses the continental stitch and the slanted gobelin stitch to create the design. It also uses the whipstitch to hold the pieces together and the overcast stitch to finish things off.

Next whipstitch the sides together to form the box, using dark green yarn. I found it easiest to start at the top of each side and and work to the bottom.
