searching for inspiration in everything

I posted this in the Completed Projects along with a few other purses, but since I was inspired by people on this page to try the magazine purse, I will share my photos here as well!

For this one I used full bleed pages from several gardening magazines and cut them into 1-inch strips using my rotary cutter and mat.  I then wrapped each strip in packing tape and wove them together.  I attached interfacing to the back and then just used the woven sheet as a piece of fabric!  My needle needed to be wiped off a couple of times (due to the sticky tape) but it worked surprisingly well!

A second bag I made using the same technique but making the total image smaller to hopefully add to the overall durability of the bag.  I made this as a request for a silent benefit auction for a friend who is going through cancer treatments.

I am an apologist for the spiders.

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.
