Crafting a Fashion Statement

In every crafter there lurks a hidden fashion designer. You can see it in the color palettes, the mix of materials, and how the eye is encouraged to flow over the form and shape. So invite your fellow artists, pull out all your fibers, paints and stamps, and create an altered fashion statement.

And just what is that? It is anything you want it to be. There is no rule for this kind of design. And that is why it can be so much fun to create a fashion statement challenge. The most amazing things happen.

You've Arrived.... Recycle with style in this evening bag!

CD Hand Bag KitInspired by those fabulous beaded bags of the early part of the century with an updated concept and a very new millenium twist on it. You take two of those annoyingly common cd's and create an object of adornment and fantasy. Put anything you want on it, it will be yours alone.

Converting commonplace items into a visual fantasy used to be exclusively fairy godmother territory! But, unlike Cinderella's slippers or coach, these do not change back into their mundane selves at midnight.

A gemstone/vintage jewelry version (shown in teal with vintage glass earrings) features a wonderful beaded wireworked ruffle, a center disk to paint and cover. Add your own CD, jewelry finds to make your own "bling bling" and be sure to stamp, glue, paint and cover the CD and make it yours. Cut 2 disks to paint matching colors and cover the hole, add seed beads to make that nice "ruffle edge", and add a chain or ribbon.

The "charming version" (shown in green and red) takes a different approach. Instead of using wire to hold the CDs in place, tube beads act as spacers threaded with wire and CD Hand Bag Kitending in loops. That's where the charm goes... those loops allow you to hang colorful enameled charms of everything from butterflies to cocktails, cats to handbags and shoes to create swing and motion. Pick your 1 dz charm set from our charms pages--. You also get the spacer beads. Since the exact width of the bag is not defined, you can use ribbon, felt or vinyl to mask the liner bottom. Recycle with style! Make a statment with your handbag!

All kits have:

  • complete assembly instructions
  • template for drilling CD
  • Liner pattern
