1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 19- Gallery! on: October 01, 2014 09:12:08 PM
Mr. Crab had quite a Texas adventure!  I have always loved this swap because we get to see parts of the world through the little visitors!

And, their hosts always send them home with such great stuff!

thank you!  The papers were from a friend of mine...I was "saving" them and realized that they were meant to be shared...the note cards were sent to jemimah in a swap...I am sure other papers can be used as well...

UTM--Is your jacket going to be a traveling jacket?  That is so cool!!!  You have a great start with the beautiful embroidery by a master!

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Folded Cards with Origami dolls on: October 01, 2014 05:48:46 PM

I use so many note cards in swaps, that I request them as extras whenever I can!  I make a lot of them, but I send them to my partners...it is a vicious cycle, but a much welcomed one!  It forces me to think of new things to do!

I found a sample card in my mom's things.  It was from a friend of hers in the 1970's.  I decided to dig out my stash of handmade and origami papers, and go to town!

The card is folded so that the fronts insert into each other to keep the card closed.  Pretty simple design and pretty clever.  Folding the tiny dolls was a challenge, but I enjoyed making each one unique!





Thanks for looking!

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Kirigami Tote Bag on: October 01, 2014 05:34:11 PM


Kirigami is the art of paper folding and cutting in Japan.  I found a tremendous web site that offers free patterns each week.

I enlarged the patterns to fit an 8 inch square with room to sew around the edges. I then cut the pattern out of freezer paper.  I ironed the patterns onto 5 squares of white linen fabric.

I took the squares outside and then sprayed them with indigo dye about four times.  I then rinsed and dried the squares and sewed them into a tote...oh, and I sprayed some plain linen as well to have fabric to make handles1 Grin





The tote is lined with some shibori dyed fabric I made.

Thanks for looking!
