Living Pixels lamp by Yanko Designs

These lamps are made from recycled banners. The coloured part of the banner is on the inside and only shows when the lamp is turned on. I'm going to have to give this technique a try sometime.
It looks like the individual pieces are squares with folds at the corners. So a Sure-Cuts A Lot file could be created for the Cricut Expressions from drawing software. The drawing file would be comprised of squares with optional dashed lines for the folds. I'm not sure how the vinyl is attached to the underlying frame though.

Ups and Downs

A page from my notebook about some of the highs and lows I've experienced as I try to create and sell my stuff. I hope you find it amusing.

Custom Bicycle Handlebar Bag

I made this bicycle handlebar bag for Sandra Brunner to go with her panniers. It features a detachable shoulder strap and velcro loops to attach to the bicycle handlebars. It has a lapped zipper and a floral racing stripe.
