Zipper Book Clutch | See Kate Sew

<b>Zipper Book Clutch</b> | <i>See Kate Sew</i><p>I’m loving on this amazing sewing project! What a cool way to upcycle an old and loved book (or a vintage book with a cool spine!). And to my pleasure, this project does not involve any sewing! That’s right, no sewing, just some glueing with some super strong E6000. Just make sure you use that glue in a well ventilated area to avoid headaches!

Happy #artthursday! This week takes us to Singapore, home to the 55-meter, 230-ton Alkaff Bridge. Popularly called Singapore's ArtBridge, the pedestrian bridge was designed to resemble a tongkang, a traditional boat common to the region. Built in 1999, the bridge was painted in 2003-2004 by renowned Filipino artist Pacita Abad and a team of paintbrush-wielding rope specialists who transformed it into the vibrant landmark it is today. See more photos and videos from the Alkaff Bridge by tapping the blue location link above. Photo by @naokiastaro.

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmindtheclouds The goal this weekend is to take creative and playful photos and videos of people or objects interacting with clouds. Some tips to get you started: Take time to notice the shapes of clouds and what you think of when you see them, then use that inspiration as a starting point for the shot you put together. Second, be patient and pay attention to perspective. It's important to line your shot up well so others can understand what you've created. Finally, have fun! Don't be afraid to let your imagination run wild. PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPmindtheclouds hashtag to photos and videos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs and videos to the project. Any image or video taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured right here Monday morning! Featured photo by @brahmino
