So far, I think we are going to list categories rather than exact things.

--Something that used to be some kind of packaging/container
--Something that used to be stepped in or stepped on
--Something that used to be worn on the body
--Something that was previously crafted

Maybe one more category of items to choose from, I thought I had one but I forget. Never mind, I remembered! And I do have a prize lined up! If we can hammer out one more category I'll get the challenge posted monday or tuesday this week!

I was going to suggest 'something from your closet' but I think that's already covered.

Hmm ...

something from the kitchen or office?


Does the entire bag have to be recycled materials?  And if not, what percentage has to be?  Smiley

I think that maybe 90% should be recycled? What do you guys think? Basically everything, but you can use thread, tape, glue, maybe a little trim, things like interfacing would be ok?

What about lining? Just use another recycled item? The reason I ask is because if the previously crafted theme is the winning theme, I have some old embroidery peices that are pretty stained up that I've picked up at yardsales and such, while the would make a great outside, not so much for lining. but if I used them for the outside, could I use another item like an old t-shirt or curtain, etc? Or should I try to find another previously crafted item to line it with?

You can use anything as lining that fits into one of those categories...but you in particular...I would really like it if you lined your purse with a shoe. Wink

We're not doing any more voting, all of those categories are going to be available to craft from.

Me either!  I found something in my closet to use (if I can bear to cut it) and I think it'll look awesome.
