Soon I’ll get back to my studio and start creating again for my etsy shop…. for now, though, I’m surrounding myself with soft peachy pink wedding magic

Textile Art Bag

October 25, 2014 - Comments Off on Textile Art Bag

This clutch bag is so soft and feels good to the touch. That’s why I left it as a clutch…as opposed to adding a long crossbody strap. It’s now on display at Urban Sassafras (in Springfield, Il), but can also be purchased through my etsy shop itzachicthing.etsy.com if I know about interest. Just let me know. It measures 7-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ and has a back zippered pocket.

Plastic Bags

April 29, 2014 - Comments Off on Plastic Bags

Here are a couple of bags that were created using the fused plastic bag technique. This is the original process that I used when I opened my etsy shop, itzaChicThing.etsy.com

Over the years, my style evolved to include more recycled fabrics, instead of plastic. Thought I would try it out again, after looking back at some of my photos and thinking that they had a different kind of interesting look. Here are a couple of new creations, in the old style.

I started experimenting with making hats when I found a set of wooden hat forms at an estate sale. They’re created free-form, bricolage style by layering fabrics, molding,cutting, stitching until I get the look that I want. I love the way this one turned out, it’s one of my favorites. It sold at a local event where I set up my upcycled vendor cart…here’s a photo of the cart:

Recharging

December 29, 2013 - Comments Off on Recharging

A fire in the wood burner is keeping me cozy as I recharge…straightening up the chaos in my studio and daydreaming…thinking thinking thinking. Got my new business cards yesterday. I used a photo of one of my favorite painted canvas upcycled bags….I think this one went Florida’s way this past year. (contact info is printed on the back)

What was once a yellow vintage vinyl bag is what you see here…the result of seeing/hearing the What Does the Fox Say video. It’s a work in progress….
