1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tote bag: Knit fast die warm on: May 18, 2008 07:21:47 AM
Inspired by the craftster slogan "Knit fast - die warm" I made this tote bag for a knitting friend. The print is bleached with a felt-pen dipped in clorine and then painted in some of the bleached areas with fabric pens.

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / flour sack --> grocery bag "Harina San Pedro" on: March 04, 2008 01:35:21 AM
They are great on recycling in Central America, and my friend got me a simple bag made of an old flour sack from Honduras.
I love the printing on it, but I never used it because I didn't really like the bag.  So, this is a reconstructed, reconstructed flour bag of plastic turned into a grocery bag. I ironed it and that turned out great because now I can fold it - just like one on those paper bags you get (buy in Sweden!) in the grocery store.

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Experimenting with bleach - new Frida Kahlo stencil on: March 01, 2008 01:41:52 AM
I got really inspired by some of the bleached stuff I have seen here on Crafter especially emlee_bee http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=201691.msg2146348#msg2146348
Unfortunately I can't find any kind of bleach pen here in Sweden, so I have dipped an old felt-tip pen in chlorine, since my various tries with spraying bleach on the fabric have been disastrous.
I hope I can inspire you in any way.


I stole this stencil from this page: http://triciawang.vox.com/library/posts/tags/san+francisco/

It is first bleached and then stenciled with fabric paint. Do you think I should ad the flower or not?







4  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Camera case on: January 07, 2008 07:32:55 AM
Here is a wet felted camera case I made a while ago. A friend's friend has sheep and I got a bag of fresh shaved wool  Smiley The wool is not colored, and I had to card the wool, which took the longest time. I made a small bag of oilcloth to put inside the case to protect the camera from all the small fiber that come of from the wool and also to make it a little more water proof.

Thank you for watching.
