off the beaten path craft ideas?
So I've been "crafting" for the past 30+ years and I'm just bored...lol.
Last project was a crossbody foldover handbag in a bright blue vinyl. I made it because I knew specifically what I wanted in a bag/tote and couldn't find it for a price I was willing to pay....not because I'm that into sewing. I do enjoy the actual designing aspect though...(no pattern used).
I've been online looking for my next project and nothing seems to jump out at me. Everything just seems so...I don't know....docile? I want something I can sink my teeth into.
I walked around Pat Catan's for an hour the other day....jewelry making (meh), fine art (been there done that), scrapbooking (not for me)...
I guess I should preface this by saying I'm not a "girlie girl" and making "pretty things" doesn't appeal to me at all. I'm also not into "country" at all, which most crafting seems to fit more in that decor. I'm very "artsy" and worked as a professional photographer for awhile....LOVE b&w photography.
I've done and like woodworking but I don't have the funds to set up a proper workshop so....I also thought about stained glass but I don't know that I care for the finished product enough to bother. Something like decorative ironworking sort of appeals to me.... I guess I'm looking for a meatier craft if that makes any sense...
Any "off the beaten path" ideas would be appreciated. :)
