Part of what my art is about is doing with what you have.
I always journal and I like taking my "stuff" with me, just in case.
Here's a skirt I found at a thrift shop for 50 cents. It's silk and it has three different fabrics.
It did not fit me so I'm making it into a pretty cover bag for all my journal things.
First...I cut it into.
Then I cut it to a size I thought would be good.
I then sewed all edges leaving the ruffle part open.
My stuff for bag.
All I did was put my stuff inside, found a pretty wire ribbon, use an old
silk flower for looks and that's it.
Now it's pretty and all my stuff is all together.
It's not too big so I can fit it inside my purse.
I'm off to journal!!!
I hope you make one for your journal book.
Let me know if you do.
By the way....they make great Christmas gifts.
