Here I stencil printed a design onto fabric with an airbrush gun. Spraying with an airbrush gun is like instant screen printing, the process is so much faster and easier too. I used createx airbrush paint pearl gold and for the upper wings gold mixed with a few drops of red transparent.
If you don’t have an airbrush gun, you could use a recycled or new spray bottle with manually adjustable nozzles. Read More
At the moment I feel like reusing and recycling as much as I can. So here I made a cardboard shoulder bag which is surprisingly sturdy and cost me very little to make.
I waxed the card and varnished the paper for protection, so hopefully, I can use it for a some time.
I threaded it with paper string to stay with the theme. The lining is from my spray painting tank tops projects, I wrote about them here and here. The bag won first price in the cardboard contest on instructable.com, so exciting.
I didn’t know how beautiful leather rings look on your fingers until I made a few. Once again I was looking at stuff floating around in my craft room trying to come up with ideas of what to make with things I’ve already got.
I must confess I have a huge collection of fabric scraps. Every once in a while I get a bag out and think I have to make something out of them or why am I keeping them. Clothes for little ones are a great way to use up fabric scraps as you don’t need as much fabric.
The t-shirt is hand sewn, with the seems on the outside for extra interest. I used five different colours of organic cotton jerseys from Organic Textile Company.
I don’t want to make clothes that look like I bought them in a shop. I want my second skin look hand-made and unique. One way of achieving this is printing my own fabric. Wood block printing is probably the easiest and simplest printing method of all.
Embroidery on clothes is a wonderful way to embellish plain clothes or fabrics. Once you know a few embroidery stitches, you can transform a boring piece of clothing into something awesome and very special.
Compared to other craft forms, embroidery doesn’t require much tools or materials. All you need is thread, a hoop, a needle, some scissors, a tailors pencil for drawing a design onto the fabric or some transfer material if you want to transfer images to fabric.
