thanks guys Smiley

you can sew through aluminum cans?

you can, but it breaks your machines, and its really difficult to get the stitching right! you kinda have to go with the mistakes...
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / the rubicon bag (first post) on: August 12, 2011 07:05:52 PM
this is my first post Smiley and so, something a bit special (to me!)

i've FINALY finished this goram project!

This project is made from soda cans, all rubicon Smiley i love the bright colors, also, bit of a fruit obsessive, so love rubicon.
the noise it makes is a little annoying, but i dont mind coz i love how it looks Smiley 

the white canvas is from an old (and broken) canvas wardrobe, the straps came on some blankets, so SUPER recycled/reused

Also, the only thing i had to make the bottom stiff was some cardboard, so i wrapped two bits of card in duct tape (so they'd be a bit waterproof in case the bag ever gets wet, im EXTREMELY clumsy) and then put them inside the lining.

heres a closer look for the details, the stitching isnt perfect, but this project was a PAIN in the ARSE!

Sewing the cans greatly displeased my sewing machine and it got mad! luckily my friends dad came and fixed it for me Smiley

i was never really 100% sure what i was doing with this project which led to stupid mistakes, like not sewing the handles on before i started attaching the cans, thus the straps had to be hand stitched.

i think the reason it took me so long is that there where so many unknowns i just kept putting it off...

anyways, all done now, and proud of myself even though its not perfect Smiley

9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: A Green Idea Chain Game 2010 on: August 12, 2011 05:47:36 PM
What can I do with a silverware basket, the kind that goes in a dishwasher?

i realize this is a bit late! BUT

i presume it has holes in it? in which case really easy to weave floss or wool to decorate, or add beads or ribbons. then use it to store things,
stationary: pens, scissors paint brushes ect
or maybe some dry or fake flowers
or maybe make up

or if u have a kid, for storing there little bits and bobs Smiley 

i was wondering if anyone had any ideas for these beauties:


i think they're pine!? but could be completely wrong, the shorter one is about 138 cm and the taller about 158 cm

i love the way they look with the bark stripped off (so would like them visible),  they seem pretty strong, the only thing i can really  think of is some kind of chair,

any other ideas?

thanks Smiley
