Beautiful Cushion cover.

Its almost an year since I blogged. But dont think that I have stopped doing craft. How can I stop my addiction.!! Creativity is a continuous thought process. Once your mind and eyes soon get trained for that; then there is unlimited creativity everywhere.!

Recently I have been into stitching my own salwars and kurtis. That leaves me with bag full of scraps and bits of cloth. There was also a portion of silk saree which I did not want to throw off. I know, this habit sometimes fills up the junk bag.

So here is upcycling (let me use that trendy word!) the scraps into cushion covers. I have used the cream silk piece as the base. So I have given a cotton lining to give strength for the final product. All materials used are scrap pieces.

The elephant pattern is cut from a contrast colour fabric and pasted using fabric glue. The outline was given using black fabric paint.

Recycle Cotton Pants

Cotton Pants and Jeans are the best material to recycle and make shoulder bags, shopping bags etc.

I have used my son's cotton pants to make this shoulder bag. It can contain quite a good amount of things. I have cut the material such that the pockets are left as such, so that they can be more effectively used!.

Easy painting for kids

Vaccation is there and you need thousands of activities, ( that too new novel ideas) to keep our kids engaged thru the days. Anything is better than watching TV and computer games.

Here is one idea. Instead of just painting in pieces of paper and thowing it off, do a master piece they will be proud to display in their rooms..

Materials needed

Thermocol sheet - You can buy from craft shops. Some times I keep the flat ones that come with packing of electric/electronic items

Acrylic paints - colours of your choice
sketch pens

How to

Using sketch pens draw the outline of the picture they want to paint. Bigger kids can draw their own designs. Pencils wont work on thermocol sheets, so you have to use sketches pens etc whose nib is soft. Now use the acrylic colours to colour the picture. Use broad brushes to fill bigger areas. Fill thoroughly so that white thermocol spots are not seen inside the picture colored.
Enjoy vaccation with kids as well as decorate our homes.
