Is that a clear plastic pocket? I love this. I'm not surprised your boys love it, I'm a 27 year old boy, and I still love my lego! Awesome make Smiley

Hi everyone, I went to the scrappys today to get some new wheels for my car and I was wondering what parts usually get wasted? I know the frame usually goes to get crushed after being stripped down. I've seen some great things done with seatbelts. Obviously I'd need quite a few to make something, anyone ever got seatbelts from the scrappy before? How much did you pay? Also what's the cheapest art supply you've ever got from a scrapyard?

elderflower, I only just noticed your post. Well spotted. I didn't notice the KEY element when I made this but it's now strikingly clear. I wonder if I did that subconsciously.....

I'm glad you like it Smiley

It would be a great way to remember somebody. It took about 16 ties in total.

The bottom is flat, you can see where that's stitched. I was tempted so sew along the zig zag though.

Thanks everyone Smiley

The back also has the front bottom pocket but I don't have a picture. I sold the bag recently so I won't be able to show what that looks like.

I've been wanting to try out jewelry making for quite some time now and I absolutely adore found object jewelry. Not only is it quirky and unique, I'm constantly hoarding away little trinkets that I find.



So here is my first attempt. The broken key had been on my keyring for years because I loved the weathered effect and it was the key to my first shop so it had a nice memory.

Here is a bag I made from neckties. Completely lined with inside pockets and a zip fastening.

Even the straps are ties Smiley
