And the winner is Pearmaid!



Alrighty guys, it's time for another clothing board challenge! The theme that was picked is creating clothing from one bedsheet.

The rules:
 
- 1 bedsheet may be used, try to take a before pic, and mention what size sheet it was!
- any notions may be used, for example, thread, zippers, buttons.
- trim may be used, ribbon, fringe, etc
- you can make one piece of clothing, or try to make as many as possible from your one sheet!
- all entries most be posted on this board by midnight [est] on April 2nd!

This challenge is all about seeing who gets the spiffiest clothing out of a bedsheet! Have fun!


The winner of the clothing challenge will receive....



This fantastic totebag from Leah!

Thanks Leah!

I voted for designer knock offs, but this looks pretty cool too ^^

Prehaps I just missed it... but when are entries due?
And can we start submitting them as soon as we want? Or do we wait for a certain date?

(But ooooh, I'm so psyched! I've been waiting forever for a new clothing challenge  Grin )

I've had an idea for something I've been wanting to make and about 2 hours ago I found a bed sheet that would be great for it. And then I come on here and stumble across this challange just now! This is going to be fun fun fun!

Oh my days. It's like you're psychic. do you know how many bedsheets I have on the shelves behind my sewing machine?!

Neither do I actually, because I'm too scared to count.

Thanks for setting this up superstitch!  I think every once in a while, i get stuck in a rut making clothes from patterns and fabric so this ought to rattle the creative juices a bit!

Everywhere I go now has sheets on sale, so narrowing down to one is going to be the hardest thing!

I look forward to seeing what people come up with so I can maybe "borrow" a few ideas for future projects!  Cheesy

Hummm. I forgot about this.

Are we allowed to use appliques?

And I just found a bedsheet yesterday that I plan to use ^^

Oh, one more question. Are we allowed to dye the bedsheet? Or should we use it in it's original form?

Oh nooooo. For some reason I was thinking the 7th  Embarrassed
I really need to check dates more closely...

I made something out of my bed-sheet like, a week back now. I was just finishing up the second item ^^;

Astica,be sure and post anyway in the clothing board!!  So far, I have seen such a variety and I love that everyone did something different! Your item sounds so intriguing!

Superstitch, I understand your pain as I am rushing like mad completing tax returns for people! Cheesy

Can't wait to see what the next clothing challenge will be---let's all start brainstorming for the next one!
