Cool! We can do some theme challenge voting if we get a few more theme ideas. I think maybe a purse making kit would be a good prize!

What about a beach/pool themed bag?  (Pockets for various things, or a general beach/pool applique design or something)

Rainbow is always a good theme, too, in my book. Cheesy  Or nature-themes (birds, animals, trees).

How about a music-themed bag?  Either a specific song or just music in general?
Poetry-themed?  Again specific poem or general theme.

I just looked at the past challenges and there was a movie version of the book idea.  Roll Eyes I like the music theme or poetry theme ideas from kaz814. Oh, what about mythical creatures as a theme? Or faerie tale theme? Or something based on Greek/Roman mythology? A bag based on a favorite play? Can you tell I've been organizing my bookcase?  Roll Eyes

haha, they all sound great! I haven't even looked at the past challenges, this is a new board for me to moderate so I don't know what's been done in the past.

Hmm. How about the most diverse types of bags in a set time period. (i.e.: How many bags can you make in a 1 or 2 week time frame?)
Or, how 'bout a challenge of two bags, each diversely different. (i.e.: a fold over and attach a handle bag and an extremely challenging bag pattern {Vogue Patterns comes to mind})
Or ... hmm: I think I've run out of ideas.
Oh, I have another Idea! How about a bag out of a Bag-Book? There are several books out there tht have baga in them, and ones that are only books of bags; why not a challenge for Bags only permitted out of Bag-Books ("Hold it: How to sew bags, totes, duffels, pouches and more" by Nancy Restuccia, comes to mind.)
Or, maybe bags made out of "recycled" materials (i.e.:used to be {wedding dress, leather jacket, tent, tarp,} but now is a bag!)

I've never participated in a challenge but I think it would be fun!  I like the theme ideas for favorite book, same pattern, recycled items, or something charity related of the ones people have already mentioned.  Since the challenge would be during the summer, how about a summer or beach themed bag?  Or since fall will be right around the corner at that point, a fall or back to school theme.

I'll be on vaca at the same time! Don't worry, the challenge will be based around that time period lol! Or part of the crafting period could be over that time period, but the voting/end of crafting time will definitely be later. Where are you going? I'm doing a Western Caribbean cruise (hope the oil spill doesn't divert us) and a week in New Orleans!
