Firkantflet -- Candy wrapper "Bags"

     Uglemor kan godt lide teknikken i firkantflet, men som det engelske navn siger, bruges den mest til tasker. Dette har ligget som en hindring i hjernen, og alle forsøg på at flette kurve osv. er ikke rigtigt blevet gode. Så forleden dag læste Uglemor om buttede kurve hor ReCyklisten. Så sagde det pludselig klik i Uglemors hjerne, og den buttede kurv tog form.

MotherOwl loves to make things. Candy wrapper bags have been going on for a long time, but as MotherOwl only uses her faithful old bagpack, bags are not so hot. Then she read about chubby bags at ReCyklisten's place., and something went click inside her brain. The chubby basket was born. The first try is not that chubby, but more are sure to follow.

  • Flettet af müsliposer, der er kun brugt dem med brun etiket, og det brune er samlet i top og bund. 
  • Made from muesli bags, only those with a brown label, and all the brown pieces are put in either bottom or the top ring. 

     Den er så ikke så buttet, som jeg havde forestillet mig det, men den har givet mig det fornødne puf bagi. Nu er der allerede gang i en ny, denne gang kommer alle de kedelige grå lapper ned i bunden, de blå bliver til to ringe, en i top og en i bund. Der skulle gerne komme ligt mere knald på farverne på den måde.

It is not as chubby as I envisioned, but a blue one is coming up. This them all the grey pieces will go into the bottom, and the blue ones will make bottom and top ring, maybe that will give the colours a little more power.

  • En blå ring, en spraglet ring og en næsten færdig kedelig grå bund til den blå buttede kurv. 
  • One blue ring, one multicoloured ring and a gray bottom - almost done -  for the blue chubby basket.

  1. Uglemor,

    I am fascinated by your recycled bags. I remember seeing some on your blog before. Could you explain a bit more about chubby baskets. I didn't understand how these ones differ from the candy wrapper bags you made before. Sorry to be so slow!

    1. Chubby baskets are thicker round the middle. That effect is reached by making the squares a little bit larger for the middle chains. I think the next post, I'm writing on -- and trying to photograph baskets and chains for -- will explain better.
