Learn to Turn Grocery Bags to Cloth

30


30 simbi per session - Virtual OK

I will teach you to turn everyday plastic bags into heavy duty raincoat fabric or handmade iron on images with nothing but an iron and some wax paper either. Lesson can be held on skype or facebook video chat or by sharing a pdf how to. I'll be there to help trouble shoot and provide specific advice on your individual projects.

Upcycling is one of my passions. Who knew plastic bags could be made into a useful waterproof fabric with nothing but a little heat. Once made this fabric is useful in all sorts of projects from ice packs and lunch bags to full on jackets. Can also be employed to fix already plastic goods such as umbrellas. Though you can sew this fabric it is often, no sew due to being able to iron new seams into the plastic as you go. Why pay for expensive poly fabric when you have some in your kitchen cupboard.

Training & Qualifications


I have done this a few times now. I also am a sewer by trade so I'm no stranger to an iron or iron on materials. I love to upcycle so this was just right up my alley when I decided to learn to do this.

Availability & Preferences


Weekends.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

What a cool experience dealing with Candice! We connected via Skype... I was totally surprised that what she was showing me would be so easy... For so...me reason I expected the learning curve to be more difficult... She was also geared and demonstrated all that was needed. Thanks for the clear demonstration and being prepared! She has stimulated my curiosity to experiment and also to learn more! Thanks a lot!show more

About Candice Potts

Looking for new experiences. I work at a Graduate Assistantship for Cal U's Department of Success most of the week but love to always be moving and working. I'm getting my master's degree in school co...unseling to hopefully one day be middle school counselor. My main experience is in middle and high school success coaching, tutoring, and school counseling but a girl's got to have her artistic hobbies as well. I love teaching and working with children of all ages. I have tutored students in math and English for many years. I hold certification in CPR, First Aid, Aquatic Observer, Archery (Level 2), and hold all PA clearances on record. My goal is to give everyone I meet the resources to do whatever it is they want to do. Nothing a simple as knowledge should hold you back. I trade for services that I need, lessons that I want, and cute gifts for my eight nieces and nephews back in Michigan. I'm waiting for Simbi to get big so I can get car repair and haircuts and such on here. I also love nerdy art to further decorate my home nerdvana. My boyfriend also uses my Simbi to get help developing his new tabletop game system called So You Want to Be a Badass?. My most popular Simbi services deal with sewing. I learned to sew costumes and such by hand from my grandmother when I was young. I love doing custom commissions and recycling old garments and such to make quilts and new stuff. I even make waterproof fabric of my own out of recycled grocery bags. show more
