I saw this press release today and thought it was perfect for craftsters. The contest is to design a dress from everyday objects you would find in an office (tape, bubble wrap, calendars..etc). It is part of a campaign to promote the TV show Ugly Betty. AND You don't have to actually make the dress you can just submit drawings!
I would enter but I can't since I work for the company... but I would LOVE it if a craftster won!!
Here is the site with more info:

This would be great for me! But I work in the office of a bra making company so I have fabric and crazy underthings all around me! I'm sure they mean office supplies like from the office store not the sample garments we have hanging about.

After looking at the rules a little further it looks like you are limited to THEIR list of office supplies... but there are still plenty of items to choose from and fabric swatches is among the items listed...
