Iron Craft Challenge 7 Midas Touch

This weeks Iron Craft challenge was to create something using metallic gold. This was a bit of a challenge for me because I don't like gold. I decided to be a rebel and do two projects one that was gold in name only and one using metallic gold. The rebellious project is a goldfish string toy for The Cat. I'll be doing a tute for it later this week so keep your peepers peeled for that.

For the other Project I stayed true to the challenge theme and used some gold yarn I picked up in a bag of random yarns at a thrift store. I had never done plastic canvas before but I had a few sheets that I used for billed crocheted hats. I decided that I would use this challenge to learn something new so I made a simple cube box using the gold yarn. I like the dimension that the plastic canvas gives and I'm going to get supplies to do some more projects in the future.


  1. My MawMaw had this awesome tote she created with yellow and purple yarn using those plastic canvas sheets. Nice box.

  2. Thanks, I've never seen a purse made of plastic canvas. I think I'm gonna have to take a look at some patterns and get some ideas.
