Wallpaper Purse

Rachel, of Rayela's Fiber Focus, made this amazing purse--a true work of art.

It is created using the traditional method for weaving candy wrappers or chip bags, except she utilized sample pieces of wallpaper.
The blog post includes how-to information.

I hope you're inspired to try this method.
Call it folk art, or tramp art, or a rediscovered recycling craft...
I just call it gorgeous.

If you're interested in purchasing a how-to video on weaving candy wrappers, one is available by The Candy Wrapper King.
He says, "I just used upolstery thread and a homemade plastic "flat" needle. It's actually fairly simple once you know how."
(note, I have not seen the video, so am not endorsing it, but am giving you the information if you are interested)

Thanks, Barb! From your profile, it seems we may have quite a bit in common.

Have you thought of selling on Etsy? Purse and bag competition is pretty stiff there, but it's a great community, full of eye candy!

Love your blog and wish you all the best! Rachel
