Hello everyone. I have a simple tutorial or more like an idea to share. Every month i receive my Studio Calico Kit in a big brown bag. I hoard them all and was thinking of a way to recycle it. I came up with this simple idea of turning the bag into a Mini Album with pockets! Let me show you how i do it.
First i cut the bag into 3 sizes, The first two is 7'x12' and the other half is 4.5' x 12'.
Next i fold them in half and then stack them on top one another.
If you have a sewing machine just sew the center part to make the spine. In my case i hand stitch using embroidery floss. Please excuse my horrible stitching!
I glue the bottom part of the bag to make pockets.
Finally the fun part, cover them up with your left over bits and pieces from the kit. Embellish as desire!
I managed to do 3 mini's, one from my current kit Field Guide the rest is from my previous stash.
This is going to be my new year gifts to my girlfriends. I still have plenty of those brown bag and perhaps will think of other ways to recycle them.
