Plastic Canvas Needlepoint RV Lamp


I spotted this kitschy RV lamp the other day, brightening up the cream and sugar station at Acre Coffee in Petaluma, Calif. It’s made from that plastic canvas used for cross-stitch and needlepoint, and it made me smile.

    Hey guys! I think it’s quite possible that this was vintage. It didn’t look super new. One of you all should try making it and post a tutorial! If you do, be sure to add a link in the comments here. : )

    Laura, do you remember how the lighting was added? And the wheels? There is a pattern booklet available for a fashion doll camper which could be a guide for the basic camper.

      I have done a covered wagon night light. It uses a 3-4 ft cord and a 7 watt bulb at the end that looks like one of the old fashioned large Christmas bulbs. There is a clip on the bulb socket. Cut a small square opening in the bottom canvas just large enough for the bulb and clip to fit into. Wouldn’t it be cute using various colored bulbs to fit the mood?

    I also have been looking for this pattern for about a year now and no luck in finding it. So I made my own pattern of it. As of now I am working on putting the wheels on it as well as the awning. So far it looks really nice.
