It's been a while since i wrote my last article about handicraft.
All ideas are all over the internet that's why I spent days for experimentation on different weaving procedures. I discovered this weaving style after several trial and error. I just don't know if this procedure is already uploaded or already known on the internet, bear with me if it is. This is how to recycle news papers and make it a beautiful hand bag. I called this weaving procedure "twisted paper" obviously because of the twisting of news paper pages before weaving it. It's another DIY craft tutorial best for school project in elementary and high school and it's called a woven twisted paper bag
My first attempt was a failure because my weave was too loose like what you 'll notice in the picture below:
This one needs constant pulling of the twisted page of the news paper. I considered this as "reject" but I chose to upload it to give you precautions to never make it too loose by constant pulling or making the twist and the weave very tight. I made this one with the help of my niece elaine who's so inspired and interested in handicraft like me.
Procedure is very simple, simply twist the news paper page like this:

In this project, I divided the news paper page into four then twisted them like these on the picture.

I started weaving from the bottom, it is the classic weaving style like what you see in the picture.

Make sure that you left a hole on both sides of one of the squares. This is where we will insert the ribbon chord.

DIY swim suit out of remnants

This is what we really need during summer, a pair of swimsuit. a small piece of cloth to cover some parts of of our body which makes us comfortable when we go on a swimming. Posing on a camera wearing your swimsuit is always exciting, but wearing the same swimsuit in every swimming event is something you shouldn't do. Swimsuit cost a bit expensive, so why spend too much money buying many pairs when you can make your own?
Today, I will show you simple steps on "how to make your own swimsuit", it's a DIY procedure which is so easy to do.

These floral remnants of cloth are for the front of our top and the reds are for the lining. I cut those pieces of cloth to triangles to cover the top part of the body.

I cut a 2 inch wide of red cloth. I will attach it to the triangles on the armpit side.

I did the same procedure with the other triangle.

this is the back image of our top

Now I cut a 2 inch wide and 28 inches long red cloth. This is for the upper part of the triangles. It should be long enough to make a ribbon.

Make a mark on the middle of the cloth before sewing, this is to make an equal length for the ribbon.

Again, cut the same size of  a long red cloth for the lower part of our triangles. The length should be enough to make a ribbon at the back.

 Attach  it by sewing.

Now we're done with the top.

Now let's proceed with the bikini procedure.

This is the front view of our bikini. The lower back is a little bit narrow to make a perfect curve.

This is  the back of the bikini. It's a little bit wider to cover the butt part. Like what we did on the top procedure, we should duplicate these cuts to make a lining.

Attach them together.

Cut a 2 inch wide red cloth. The length should be enough to cover the sides of the bikini.

This is the results of steps 1-4

Repeat the procedure 4 to cover the upper front and upper back edges, this time, you have to cut a longer piece enough to make a ribbon on both sides.

Our finished product.

By learning this procedure, you can have many swimsuits, as many as you want. Now, you don't need to re-use those old pairs so can always post new styles on your Facebook profile. The best thing about learning these steps is that you can make swimsuits and sell them to make an extra income. This is what I always want for my readers to benefit from my blogs: save money, minimize wastes and make an extra income from the garbage. Good luck fellas!
