Plastic Bags
April 29, 2014

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

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)

Little bit hippie, little bit country girl
October 14, 2013

I haven’t abandoned my signature style, just expanding on it. This bag was created using upholstery fabric samples.

I was given an unbelievable array of beautiful (discontinued) samples from an upscale furniture store…could hardly sleep just thinking about all the things I could do with them!
