I'm a new green girl, or trying to be. I am hording magazines and other stuff to rework into other products. I have a knack for seeing that materials could be put to another use, but at times lack a direction. I'm not good at patterns and direction, so often have to craft my own idea on how to do something.
I'm flummoxed though about making a woven bag in not knowing how to make a nice edge. I've looked for patterns and can't seem to find any that are not basket like.
Does anyone have a tutorial or something? I'm sure I am not phrasing it right in my searches, but what I want to find is how to make a basic tote and can figure out the purse parts later.
Also if anyone has any ideas about paper bracelets. I recently have my workplace saving cardboard tape rolls when they are done. I made a few nice looking decoupage style, but would like to know any other ideas you crafty people might have stumbled upon.
