Inspired by …. No2 Inspiracje cz.2

Didn’t I say last time I cut these pillowcases into pieces? Well I DID cut them into stripes and left them for a long time, as you already know.

Recently I finally found a fluid against unravel fabric’s edges over here. And it actually works quite well on this fabric, so I could cut the stripes into even smaller squares. Then I could safely bend them and glue the edges together. That is how these little purses were made.

All I needed was something to imitate the locks and/or hanldes. And these I found in long, cheap earrings!

So here you have little – well not THAT little when it comes to 1:12 scale;) - vintage bags inspired by dear Sans and made of Indian pillowcases!
Hope you will like them.:)


Pamiętacie jak pisałam, że pocięłam poszewki w kawałki?
Pocięłam je w paski i zostawiłam na całkiem długo. Aż zupełnie niedawno udało mi się kupić środek przeciw strzępieniu się brzegów w materiałach. Do tego materiału nadaje się idealnie, więc mogłam pociąć paski na mniejsze kwadraty. Potem bezpiecznie mogłam te kwadraty tak poskładać i posklejać, że uzyskałam niewielkie sakiewki. Potrzebowałam jednak czegoś, co dobrze imitowałoby zapięcia. I udało mi się takie części znaleźć w niedrogich, za to długich, metalowych kolczykach! Tak więc dziś przedstawiam Wam nie-takie-znów-małe torebki vintage zainspirowane przez Sans i zrobione z indyjskich poszewek na poduszki! Mam nadzieję, że się Wam spodobają!

WOW! Ewa, they are GORGEOUS!!! I LOVE them! ALL of them! But my favorite is the RED one at the bottom of the first picture! You have been VERY inventive with the earring pieces! The cloth is LOVELY! And I LOVE your technique for displaying them!!! Very pretty and clever! (For a minute I thought they were on pieces of mini furniture you have not been sharing with us!)

BiWuBär said...

Fantastic - they look like designer pieces! The fabrics are pretty and the metal work fits perfect! I'm curious now for the results of inspiration No. 3... ;O)

These are beautiful! I really like the black one.

Zosia said...

Świetne są, super realistyczne! No i te rączki/zapięcia... Coraz częściej dochodzę do wniosku, że przy odpowiedniej dawce wyobraźni z elementów biżuteryjnych można zrobić wszystko :)

Efa said...

Oooo rany!!! Są świetne! Naprawdę wyglądają cudownie. podziwiam cię, za cierpliwość do tak maleńkich rzeczy :) Fantastyczna robota:)
