Head In A Bag
Posted October 23, 2012on:
31 Days of Halloween – Day 17
Today’s post was inspired by a picture I saw on Facebook. The picture was of a girl walking down the street with a drawstring bag hanging from her wrist. The bag looked as if it was carrying a severed head because there was a face protruding from the inside out. As soon as I saw it, I KNEW I had to make one!
You can watch the video walk through below.
The outside of the bag is burlap and the lining is green cotton. I created my pattern and sewed the outer bag and lining bag separately.
I added more prominent features to a paper mache’ mask that I had by adding paperclay to the lips, cheeks and nose.
I inserted the face in between the outer bag and liner and glued it into place. I stitched the top of the bag and added champagne colored ribbon for the drawstring.
I have to admit I am thrilled with how it turned out and I LOVE the looks I get when I carry it around. It is a full size purse and since I sewed it on the sewing machine, it is extremely sturdy.
If you are interested in purchasing a head in a bag, please leave me a comment and I will get in touch with you.
See you tomorrow!!!!!!
