Minecraft TNT Tissue Box Cover

Picture of Minecraft TNT Tissue Box Cover

Minecraft is awesome! It looks awesome and it is fun to play. Its pixelated style goes perfectly with needlecrafts like plastic canvas. I decided to make up a tissue box cover with plastic canvas in the style of the Minecraft TNT block. Enjoy!

Step 1: Supplies and Pattern

  • 7 Mesh Plastic Canvas (can be hard to find in stores and I needed 2 sheets in order to cut out all the pieces)
  • #16 Metal Yarn Needle
  • 3 Shades of Red Yarn (dark, medium, and light) (I actually used the dark and light to make my medium)
  • 3 Shades of Grey/White Yarn (dark, medium, and light)
  • Black Yarn
  • Square Tissue Box (red preferably, though it will be covered and doesn't really matter)
  • Scissors and Exacto Knife (Exacto is optional if you need it)

Also, for the yarn, you don't want it too light or it won't cover the plastic canvas well. I used yarn that was Medium (4) weight. I used mostly Red Heart and Vanna. I got anything that was Medium weight in the color I needed.

The pattern is here for you to try to follow along with. I actually just looked at images online and went for it. But I wanted to write up the pattern just in case. In the next couple steps I'll talk about stitches, because instead of doing all short stitches or all long stitches I did 2 short with a long to imitate a pixel. I used MacStitch to make the patterns and with the free version you cannot save so you get a screenshot of what I did.

I searched the internet in order to see what the TNT block looks like. The side was easy to find and recreate and I found the top here.

nicely done... what is that software you used for the pattern in Step 1..?

Penolopy Bulnick (author)  antoniraj4 months ago

Sorry about that! I meant to link to it in the first place. I added a link, it is called MacStitch. You can do a free demo which lets you do most things, but you can't save your pattern, so whenever I use it I have to take a screenshot of the finished pattern.

can we download this on windows?

yes, you got a free version of Winstitch 2014 but you can not save your work.
