Yes, I had a fantastically inspiring time at "Inspired"!
This is Tracie Lampe-- Upcycler extraordinaire!!! Who taught the ladies (and Paolo) at Inspired how to create FABULOUS bags by fusing plastic materials together and sewing them into unique creations.
This is my new bag. Pretty Crazy, huh? *smile*
It was a little joint effort -- in so much as the ruffle that you see was inspired by a little something that Stephanie Ackerman said -- "I want to add a ruffle". Simple words that inspired so many (myself included). Since she sparked the ruffle idea -- I sewed in some labels see? Yes, I am the proud owner of a Stephanie Ackerman/Karen Ellis Designer Bag!! How fun is that?
Tracie is FABULOUS!!! -- Inspired by this class, I will be showcasing the technique at Mixed Minded AND.... Yes, at the TOMC too. Hope you are coming! It will be FREE to TRY for Mixed Minded participants at the end of the month. Tracie even sent some fun things along for the occasion. THANKS TRACIE! Can't wait to play and share your incredible vision! *hugs to ya*
