Upcycled Craft - Sweater Tote Bag

Closer Look
I have recently turned in to a true PINTEREST  :)... Checking out the new cute photos on the PINTEREST site is my new addiction (after facebook) ...and I have got the bug of making every article from the free tutorials it offers!

This is the Sweater bag I made from the tutorials posted on the site 

I loved the clear instructions written in the tutorial  and also wanted to do something different with my old sweater other than (hand mittens and phone covers and heat bags) 

I also recycled the wooden handles of the old rattan bag sold at Op Shop for $2.00.

Hello All,

 

I feel pride in sharing my first project in Parchment that magnetized my attention onto this incredible art! I feel pride in working on such contemporary craft gallery art work and looking forward to work extensively on this!

 
The above shown pattern is taken from very famous Martha Ospina's book and is listed in various popular craft galleries!


The best part of these contemporary craft pieces is the easy to create and one can craft amazingly beautiful and incredible designs by utilizing just vellum paper. Interestingly, there are numerous products can be crafted such as gift box, gift purses, lamp shades and greeting cards etc. All such gift packages can be created by using vellum paper which simply means it is extremely economical. Indeed, these kinds of projects are kept at craft galleries and are popular among art & craft lovers.

Undoubtedly, during the early 2000s the products for making such contemporary crafts were not only expensive but quite hard to create too. The white vellum paper was cheaper to replenish more often, but replenishing perga inks, paints and oils were bit expensive. This is the reason that only contemporary art center and other craft galleries were the only source to admire such art pieces.

In order to acquire best results for minimum cost, I tested many techniques on behalf of The Craft Gallery. By trial and error, I also found better and cheaper options of paints and oils to complete more projects. This successful process of finding new materials for completing new art was firsthand experience for me. This cheap alternative helped me to polish my skills of painting and creating dorso effects.

If you are looking for modern art and craft pieces, make sure to consider The Craft Gallery. These art pieces are gaining immense popularity in India as well. It is mainly due to the affordability of contemporary crafts materials in India.

If someone has had similar experience of such art pieces at fine craft gallery, museum or individually, exhibit your interest in the Comments section! 

Since moving to Australia I started using the normal pergamano range for all my creations.

Materials Used:
 2 A4 sized White Parchment Paper

Perga Ink 

Perga Liner

Embossing Ball tool

4 point needle

Pergamano Scissors 

 

Time: I completed this fan in five days. (worked 2 hours each day on the project) 

 

If you are looking to imbibe such beautiful parchment art to decor your home or to give as unique gift to your friends, look nothing but The Craft Gallery! I would be glad to create various types of fan in various sizes at affordable price.

 

Happy Crafting
