Shona has done it again. In her post today she has a tutorial on how we can alter an existing canvas bag or how you can take fabric and staple and glue it together. Now who would have thought you could use staples and glue? We just have to learn to think outside the box. There is always more than one way to do something. The project instructions in this book are just a guide. They are not a prescription. So if you were dreading the sewing portion of this workshop, just head on over to An Artful Life and get some other ideas. And sign up for her giveaway of art supplies that you can use for the projects in this workshop in a previous post while you're there. Then head on over to the Arts & Healing Network to read a book review they have done on Shona's book, The Aritistic Mother.
Now I have to decide if I am going to sew mine or alter a canvas bag. The photo above shows my poetry journal from Week 2, a canvas bag I could use and fabric quarters I have already purchased to sew my tote. So we'll see. I look forward to seeing what you come up with. And don't forget to load your completed projects on to The Artistic Mother Flickr Group when you are done. The link is in my sidebar.
And if you would like to join The Artistic Mother's Art Group or find out more information, follow the link I have in the upper right-hand corner of my sidebar to the post I've done about this group and leave a comment there.
Have a great day!
