Plastic Canvas?

 Does anyone have any experience with this? Any good online tutorials?

I bought a book of patterns to make Barbie doll furniture, but when I opened it up I realized it looks more complicated than I expected it to be. It looks like it will come out looking adorable, though!

I've never done it! I keep wanting to get supplies, butI want ONE heart or star cut out and they sell them by the dozen O.o 

Good luck! Maybe a google search of tutorialso n how to start would help?

YouTube had a few tutorials at one time. I made Barbie doll furniture for my girls years ago.......the hardest part for me was attaching the sides and making it square. 

I would recommend just trying one of the smaller pieces and if you don't like it you can always start over until you get the hang of it!

Good Luck!

 I would recommend trying something small, like a coaster, I enjoy plastic canvas, and love making coasters, really fun once you get it figured out and really get started making other stuff, google search is a good way to learn, as for me, I bought a simple easy book from the book store and did the easiet in there, which was a coaster using 2 colors. very easy. good luck:)

It's easier then you think you just have to make sure to cut exact and they should have a guild in there about the stitch and puting if together isn't as bad as it looks

 I was at Joanne's yesterday and they had small shapes sold as just one!
