21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sholder bag on: September 07, 2011 10:41:17 AM
Last summer I was lucky enough to come across a fantastic ribbon from the 70s on E-bay. Since then I have been looking for a project that would do it justice and last week I decided to use it for a bag.
I had no pattern, just a picture in my head of what I wanted so there were a lot of trying and failing before i finally could finish.



Its got 2 zippered inner bag pockets and 2 with no zipper.

I don't know what made you think of doing that, but it was brilliant.

Thanks for the kind words Smiley

That is a miraculous change!  I've been toying with a similar idea for some chairs I have. What type of paper did you use and how did you deal with the tight spots on the turned lets and cross braces?  Did you topcoat with anything?

Thanks!
I used some thin scrapping paper. (That's why its in a color that doesn't go with anything.) I soaked the paper in some water (like you would wallpaper) before i glued it on. That made the paper soft and easy to mold around the tricky parts.
I topcoated with 3 layers of shiny floor lacquer

I have 4 of these plain pine chairs. Boring as as they are, they only see light of day one or twice a year.

They were in a desperate need of a make over, so I decided to to cover one with paper. The color doesn't really go with anything in my house, but at least the chair looks a little more fun.
