memorable box !

my friend's idea :)

She always has the best intentions of scrapbooking but at last all the pictures end up sitting inside a box.so,she just thinking why not make up one pretty box !
This would be also a nice gift for your friends.This way they have a place to keep all the fun little memories throughout the whole journey of life :)

first,she bought a paper mache box from a craft shop.Once she had her box,she measured it and cut the paper to the right size she wanted.She used the spray glue to stick on the paper.She decorated the box with stamps,stickers and hand words !

Feel free to coordinate the box colors and designs just the way you love.here some ideas for what you could put in your pretty box :)

The art and craft movement !

The term craft is often used to describe the family of artistic practices within the family decorative arts that traditionally are defined by their relationship to functional or utilitarian products (form in vessel tradition) or by their use of such natural media as wood,clay and textile.

Craft practised by independent artists working alone or in a small group (often referred to as studio craft).Studio craft includes studio pottery,weaving and wood working.

The fact,craft is actually to be described as lying somewhere between an art(which relies on talent) and a science(which relies on knowledge).In this sense,the english word 'craft' is roughly equivalent to the ancient Greek therm 'techne'

So,this historical story of craft made craft well known by people nowadays !
Lets check out what craft we've for you at our crafthandbags blogshop :)

have a lovely day !



what girls can do :)

ready for the toturial ?
here you go ,
you need:

1.fabric for bracelet
2.fabric or ribbon for flower portion
3.beads or pearls and a piece of chain
4. 27″ of 3/8″ elastic

first thing first ,
cut 2 strips 18" long out of the strips you just tore

Lay your strips together and sew a seam 1/4″ away from each raw edge.
Sew two more seams 5/8″ away from the outside seams.

Cut three pieces of elastic, each 9″ long. This should fit around your wrist comfortably with about 1″ overlap. If you need to, adjust the measurements of your elastic.
Sew a small seam right inside the edge of the top casing only. You should not be sewing over the elastic. It should be just on the other side of the seam.
Move the needle over and sew a second seam, using your presser foot as a guide along the first seam. This should sew down the elastic. Repeat a third time.

Pull the elastic the rest of the way through the casing, and sew the three seams on the other edge.

Repeat with the other two casings and the remaining pieces of elastic.

Put all four snaps in. The two on the right side should face down and the two on the left should face up.

For the flower part of the bracelet I used 1 1/2″ strips of linen. I folded them so that they resembled a flower, with folds that were gradually smaller towards the center.

Sew on your beads, pearls and chain. I tried to keep the larger pearls towards the center, the smaller beads towards the outside.Sew your flower piece to the outside of the gathered bracelet piece.

All done!! What do you think?
give a try dears.

quilted PINCUSHION toturial

So let's get started! Here's what you're going to need:

  • 2 quilted squares measuring 4" x 4"
  • Walking Foot
  • Polyester or wool batting scraps or fiberfill or trimmings from your last haircut
  • Embroidery Floss
  • Variety of Decorative threads
  • Hand embroidery needle
Here's a tip I learned from my Grandma years ago: next time you get a hair cut, ask if you can sweep up the trimmings. Save these and put them in your pincushions! The natural oils in your hair will keep your pins from rusting.

then,Binding with embroidery floss.
Here's what it should look like when the full pincushion is encased with embroidery floss ;)

lastly,adding decorative threads !!
enjoy :)

How to Get Craft-Making Skills

Suggestions to look for Craft Classes at your area

When i think about my craft business satisfaction,running a close second to having customers buy my craft products but my craft products is going to school to learn new techniques or improve the old one.I really enjoy the whole pre-production aspect of getting new lines of craft or arts products going.

Even if youre not happy to go to school,its usually inevitable part of starting and growing our arts and craft business.It is entirely possible to be completely self-taught.But most things in life, if you have someone who knows what they are doing show you skill first,you'll probably learn and master the concept more faster.If getting four years degree at an art school or taking two weeks off to attend an art camp isnt possible.here are some alternative:

  • attending classes at local technical school !
these schools can be privately owned or operated by your local school district.If paid for through tax of fee,their mission is to provide hand-on training enabling the students to secure employment.The classes usually useful and pretty inexpensive.

  • signing up for Community College Art/Craft classes !
I used to teach a basic accounting class to non-business majors at my local community college.The mailboxes at the adjunct instructors were across campus so I had to walk past the arts department to get my mail.I was always very envious of the students taking the classes the classes.The instructors were dedicated and the equipment was stellar.

This is a bit more hoopla about taking classes at community colleges as you'll have to go through a formal registration process.Also,the classes will be more expensive than those taken at the technical school run by our own local school district.However some community college arts/crafts are offered independent study which is the good way to hone particular skills with expert supervision.Then you are not constantly waiting for the beginners in the class to catch up...everyone is a beginner at first !

  • taking classes at teaching museum!
your local art/craft museum may offer classes as well.Sometimes the classes are taught by local or visiting artists.The instructors may trade free studio space at the museum for the class.It was clear that some instructors found its necessary inconvenience and did as little as possible.I've taken this class.These classes arent exactly cheap and there is usually lab fee involved and that was so vexing.So, my advice is to check the refund policy of any classes and see if you can get some feedback about the instructors before you signing up for any classes.

*hope its helping you !;)
