"Creativity is a spark. It can be excruciating when we're rubbing two rocks together and getting nothing. And it can be intensely satisfying when the flame catches and a new idea sweeps around the world." - Jonah Lehrer

You know you can be an inspiration for someone if you know the magic to turn a dead man alive. Yes! Creativity is ignoring the fact and relying on your imagination. Practically you can't bring life of a dead back but who knows once you discover that medicine you will be famous as a 'father of zombies'. Jokes apart but your creativity may shine out of any dead material lying for days in your store room or wardrobe. Consider that you have some unused old cosmetic pouch bags or potli bags made from colourful dupion silk fabric and some dupion silk wine bags. On your leisure time you decided to create a useful and colourful wall hanging with these resources. All you need is to follow these simple steps to make a colourful wall hanging for an elegant home decor with dupion silk pouch bags and dupion silk wine bags.

Materials required:

1. Determination, concentration and patience
2. Three same colours of dupion silk pouch bags (7x10 cms)
3. Three same colours of dupion silk wine bags (16.5 x 35.5 x 10)
4. Different colours of threads (matching with the colours of pouch and wine bags)
5. Needle

    STEP 1:

    Consider you have three small burnt orange coloured dupion silk pouch bags and three ivory coloured dupion silk wine bags. Pull out the drawstrings from all the bags. Taking one wine bag and one pouch bag, place the pouch bag on the outer panel of the wine bag. Hand sew the vertical side and bottom part of the pouch bag with the outer panel of the wine bag. Continue the same procedure for all the bags.

    STEP 2:

    Now hand sew the three combinations one below the other. Note that you need to sew the top of the inside panel of the backside layer of one wine bag with the bottom of another wine bag.

    STEP 3:

    Apply beads for decoration.

    STEP 4:

    If you want to make embroidery work for decorating your wall hanging then before going ahead with STEP 1, you need to unthread the vertical sides of all the dupion silk pouch bags. Now with a contrasting thread and colourful beads you can proceed with embroidery work on the front side of the outer panel of the pouch bags. After completing hand sew the vertical sides of the pouch bags and follow STEP 1.

    STEP 5:

    After joining all the three combinations, now proceed to make two holders with thread on the top for the wall hanging to hang.

    Your colourful and embroidered wall hanging is now ready for an elegant home decor. You can now keep items, bills and stationary items in it.
