a couple days ago for my bday i got a piece of art by Karen Windchild its an AMAZING piece..it has lots of detail and good colors.red and black my faves..so basically i want to base my room around this piece..
ok so i found this book..im sure most of you have already seen it, own it or have heard about it..but for everyone else..its called WEARABLE ART by Rice Freeman-Zachery..its so awesome with ideas on how to transform clothes and purses into whatever you want...i love it..it inspired me a little more..even just for you to skim through it in a book store..youll love it..hopefully heres a pic of the book
so after making so many purses i cant believe i did this..i completely sewed my purse INSIDE OUT the liner is correct but the purse itself is ALL WORNG..haha you can see the interfacing and buckram ..haha thought everyone would get a kick outa this.. im so fed up with myslef idont even wanna take out the seam rippers and start over..haha
how about making it into a small purse...cut around the tire for a round bag and make it all "mechanic like". use rubber for handles, or even seat belt material..ohh that would be awesome, and im sure you can find a really good peice of fabric for the lining..like a hot pink to bring out the girly side...i dont know if that was the direction you were going in but just a thought
i actually just did this for my boyfriend last month...i made 2 scrapbookes a big one and a mini one...in the mini scrapbook i put 1 song lyric on each page that meant something to me or us and on the opposite page a pic. In the larger scrapbook i filled it with the norm (memories, photos,tickets stubs reciepts etc) and 101 reasons...why i loved him..he loved it..well atleast i thought he did..haha..there is also this book called "the book of us" i got it at borders and its just filled with questions about each other and the relationship..but watch out it gets evil and starts asking about the past..but maybe you could look at it for more questions..good luck
