Upcycled Jewelry Bags, Belts and More book review Blog Hop

Hi, everyone!  Welcome to the Upcycled Jewelry Bags, Belts and More book review blog hop!  The author of this book is my good friend Linda Peterson and I couldn't be more happy to write a review for her, she is one SUPER talented lady!

Go grab her book, it's awesome!

We were asked write about a project that inspires us but I found it REALLY hard to just pick one! 

 One project that I found just so super cool was this super fun and funky "Loop de Loop" ring!

Do you wanna know what the black loops are made of?  Bicycle inner tube!!!!  Isn't that wild?!  Actually, many of the projects featured in the book are made using bicycle inner tubing and you would never know it!  I just love the simplicity of the materials used and the quick and easy way you can make a statement piece of jewelry for a fun occasion.

Ok, so I told you I couldn't pick just one so I show you a couple of peeks into two other fabulous projects found in this book.

Cell Phone Pouch with a decorative embellishment using soda can tabs as the base (SO fun!).

 Midnight Black Handbag!!!!  Y'all. This one is beyond cool.  Betcha can't guess how this bag was made?!?!?!

TRASH BAGS!!!!!  I don't know. I am just in love with this one.  Need a water proof, worry proof bag to take on the road or better yet, to use as a diaper bag (yes!), that costs next to nothing???  And it's cute, to boot! I want to make one.  Like yesterday!  Lol!

Final thoughts:  This is really a super fun and creative book full of fun projects that crafters of all skill levels would enjoy.  If you love the book, you might also want to check out Linda's Youtube playlist for Upcycled Jewelry:  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7P1ezw_smi7a25H5NfxUx-U6TFXzmXQN .  She has some great how-to videos on some of the skills and techniques used in her book as well as other craft videos that feature projects of all kinds, I highly recommend subscribing to her YouTube channel.  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
