I did it!! I saw this pattern and thought wow this is AMAZING. And the tutorial is very well done as well. I messed up a couple of things because I never really sew ever. But thank you, I will use this all the time.

yea i think i did mine differently.. I just got smaller frames and pasted magazines in stripes in like a square, then I cut out a stencil with a piece of paper and just laid it on top. so it formed the shapes for me instead of me trying to do it. If i tried, it would of turned out much worse! Smiley

so for the spanish final this year we were learning about frida khalo and stuff so we had to basically make a self portrait of ourself whether it be a painting, sculputre, or anything and describe its meaning in spanish. So i decided to do a collage. It is actully a big collage of little collages.

here is the whole body



heres just the head



i used magazines for the face then yarn for the hair

arm #1 the sewing collage, the background is a sewing pattern from who knows what and i put the word sewing on a saftey pin and used yarn darners and such



main body... its just a plain background and i added wierd clippings from magazines to make it so much cooler



arm #2 i found the sweet place setting ad in a martha stewart magazine, and then i took leaves from outside and put them on the plate... its a mighty good looking salad



leg #1.. its basically a background of nature and a flower clipping in front



groin area... I had an old encyclopedia from which i made a bag out of the covers so the inside was all s words. I found the word song and made it the background for the music collage. I also cut a guitar shape out of sheet music and used manuscript paper to write music..



leg #2 for this i found a beach painting in a magazine and used shells

Ok tutorial....

Materials:
outside fabric
inside fabric
medium interfacing
Handle stuff (idk what its called its like heavy duty ribbon.. sometimes used on backpacks)
zipper
buckle
and plastic rings

1. first you make a pattern... mine was around 14 inches as the opening and just kind of made it according to that. then with this pattern cut out 2 of the outside fabric, 2 of the inside fabric, and 2 of the interfacing



2. then you need to make the piece of fabric that connects the 2 sides. for mine i made it go from 2 inches on the ends to around 4 in the middle.. the wider you make it, the fatter the bag will be. of this you need to cut out 1 of the outside fabric, 1 of the inside fabric, and 1 of the interfacing.

3. apply all interfacing to the wrong side of the outside fabric.

4. then with wide stitching on a sewing machine attach the wrong side of the inside fabric to the interfacing. on both sides and the long piece that connects them.

5. cut all sides so everything is the same size. make sure no interfacing or other fabric shows.

6. attach sides to the conecting long piece inside out so that when it is turned right side out it looks nice.

7. turn down freyed edges so it looks nice

8. attach zipper

9. attach little pieces of ribbon stuff to a plastic ring and to the bag and then attach the handle as long as you want to the plastic ring so that it stays.

10. theres your bag!
