Hello. Crafty Club was busy this morning, Carol, our teacher gave us instructions for the next part of the project. First we had to iron a piece of webbing onto the back of the sheet of paper. It makes it stronger so it doesn't tear, to enable stitching to be added. Next we were shown how to use some wax like crayons to rub over the surface, and we used our fingers, and a cloth, to make sure it was coated. The idea is to highlight the creases in the wrinkled paper. I used blue on mine but there were all colours. Some used the gold and silver which looked particularly nice. It gave it a sort of embossed antique look. Now we have to decide what to make with it. Janet brought a book and is making a cover for it, and Avril has the idea of making a documents folder. I think I will make mine into a book cover, and make the book as well.
I'm going to cheat a little bit here, and include some pictures of bags that Janet has made. These are not my bags, but they are definitely worthy of a mention.
This is another bag she has made. Again the stitching is perfect. I like how she has chosen colours and patterns that compliment each other.
Thanks for popping in. I'll catch you tomorrow.
