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….
