These are the voyages of the Star Ship Enterprise: To boldly protect coffee tables around the galaxy. Yeah well, now that I have that out of my system. The last post I did featured a pattern for Star Trek coasters. This post has a pattern for a Star Trek Coaster holder to put those coasters in.
I used white for the background and the box sides. I would have loved to try and use a dark blue to make it look more like outer space, but I tend to use what yarn I have in my arsenal and a dark blue just wasn’t there. If you try a dark blue out and it looks amazing, let me know!

Making coasters from plastic canvas is easy and fast. They also make perfect gifts, especially if you have a Star Trek fan in your life. You can make as many or as few coasters as you want in a short amount of time.
You can also choose what colors you wish to stitch. Make a coaster with all three of the Starfleet shirt colors, or pick your favorite. Maybe you love science or medicine and want blue coasters. Depending on which Star Trek series you prefer, choose between red and gold carefully.

I’ve apparently been in a bookmark mood, most recently with this Arrow bookmark. I guess that’s because I’ve been reading quite a bit more than usual. I also love the show Arrow, and not just because Stephen Amell is nice to look at, but because the show is really great.

Slytherins read too (though I’m not so sure about Crabbe and Goyle), so treat the Slytherin in your life to this bookmark. Don’t have a Slytherin in your life? Well, it’s time to get off your high Gryffindor horse (I mean that in the nicest way. Hey, I am a Hufflepuff) and go make some Slytherin friends. After all, they’re not all bad.
This is a quick and easy pattern using size 10 plastic canvas and two colors of DMC embroidery floss. Click on the link below to get the full pattern and DMC floss numbers.

Here is a fast and easy pattern for creating a Ravenclaw bookmark with plastic canvas and DMC embroidery thread. For the experienced plastic canvas maker, the bookmark should only take two to three hours (if that).
I used the bronze and blue from the books as opposed to the silver and blue from the movies.
Without further ado, here is your pattern download:

I was so sad to watch the last episode of Castle, knowing that there wouldn’t be any more. I created this Castle plastic canvas box because I just love the logo the show used. For those who haven’t watched the show, Richard Castle is a mystery author who assists the NYPD in solving homicide cases. The best part is, Nathan Fillion plays the main character!
While stitching this box, I forgot to keep track of how much DMC floss I used of each color. That is just something I will have to keep in mind for future projects.

When I first joined Pottermore and was sorted, I was put in Hufflepuff. I admit I was a little disappointed at first. It didn’t take long before I discovered my house pride, however. Fast forward a couple of years. I hadn’t been on Pottermore for quite a while and couldn’t remember my log in or even what e-mail address I had used. I decided to just create a new log in and retake the sorting quiz. A lot had changed on Pottermore in the time since I had last been on, including the sorting quiz. To my disappointment I was now sorted into Ravenclaw. I’ve decided to consider myself a Hufflepuff with Ravenclaw tendencies. I wanted to make bookmarks for each house and started with a Hufflepuff plastic canvas bookmark. I’ll make my way through the other houses in the coming months.
I used size 10 canvas. Instead of trying to find lightweight yarn in the right colors, I choose to use embroidery floss. I simply doubled up on the strand to make it thicker and was pleased with how it turned out. I think I will use the floss from now on when stitching size 10 canvas because you can easily find hundreds of colors.

Who doesn’t love Mickey Mouse? For this Mickey plastic canvas box, I’m going to refer you to my post on the Dory plastic canvas box to see the photos to guide you through putting the box together.
Once you get the sides done, they should look like this:
You will have three patterns to download: the top with Mickey’s face, the sides for the top, and the actual box. There is also an instruction sheet you can download if you need it. The yellow on the pattern for the top of the box was a bit bright, so I used a different color on the other patterns but you will want to stitch with the same color throughout. Don’t like the yellow? Pick any color you want for the background and sides.

I hope it turns out great!
I have loved Star Wars my entire life. In my mind, Vader is one of the best villains ever created. If you feel the same way, then this Darth Vader plastic canvas pattern is for you.
I stitched mine on a full sheet of size 7 canvas. I filled it in with some longer red tent stitches to make the process go a bit faster. Choose whatever size fits your needs best. I haven’t decided if I will use mine as a wall hanging or a place mat.
