uç uca Pop-Open Little Purse! Today, I have a very cute little low sew project to show off! A friend of mine showed this to me and now I'm totally mad about it! It's so fun, cheap and easy to do and the result is cute and useful !!! Loooooooooooove it! Jojo had been complaining about her coin purse is spoilt and asking for a new one..and this "Pop" purse just came in handy! Now, let's get started :- Get a stiff cardboard (I recycled an old mushroom packing box) and cut a shape like the picture ... or you can be creative about the shape after this tutorial... The cardboard has to be stiff and flexible enough for a nice curve bend when you pressed it this way and still be able to return to the straight flat position when released. You need to cut 3 pieces of the cardboard - exactly the same shape and size. Wrap a piece of rag / clothes... (felt would be a good choice but I don't have any and it's very expensive here..) You may secure the edge with double side tape, glue gun, anything that you consider friendly enough to handle. now
Make your own fabric prints using the sun The folks who make Inkodye sent over a sample the other day. Inkodye is light-sensitive dye for textiles or any natural fibers, including wood and raw leather. It acts like the Sunprint paper you might have used as a kid, only you can brush this dye on anything you want and it comes in lots of colors. Like orange, of course. For my first test of this magical stuff, I planned to make a safety pin print on fabric. I wrapped cardboard with a piece of old plastic tablecloth to make a waterproof surface. Then I poured a little Inkodye onto a paper plate, and with a foam brush, I painted it onto the fabric. As soon as I was done brushing on the dye, I scrambled to arrange some safety pins on top of the fabric. Outside the back door, I placed the board in direct sunlight. To keep the dye under the pins from developing, I immediately rinsed the fabric under the faucet and then washed it out with laundry detergent. Here's what the fabric looks like when it's dry.
