#59 Plasticanvas Handmade Kit Nativity

Acquired 1992

I purchased and made this Bernat Handcraft Kit and finally completed it November 26, 1992 (Thanksgiving Day)! I worked on this kit for almost two years! It is 7 figures each approximately 5” tall and the accompanying stable. I did all the stitching on the canvas relatively quickly. But then I got stuck trying to put the pieces together and set up a mental block and ignored the set for almost a full year. I made it my goal to get it finished before this Christmas season and in September, I made myself figure out how to assemble the first figure. Once I did that, I had it “made”, and it was just a matter of finding time to complete it. I finally made my own nativity set! Purchase price for this kit was about $15.00 as I remember.
