Hey all, kittykill and I have been thinking of doing a challenge on this board! Anybody interested? If you are, please list some ideas you would like for a theme. Then we can take the most popular ones and vote on 'em!

Here's a few of my ideas to start us off

--Make a purse/bag out of a specific recycled material (bubble tape or something else that's semi-wacky!)
--Something charity related
--Buttons!
--Super accessorized-lots of buckles, clasps, applique, etc!
--Embroidered bags
--A certain color or color scheme
--A size parameter, each person has to make their bag to a certain size.


Here's a link to the poll, gleaned from ideas in this thread:

Well, so far there has been NO interest, so as of right now we don't really plan to have any challenges. Maybe if some other people express interest.

Me!!!  I'm expressing interest!  I love the idea and bags are my thing! Cheesy

I could totally go for a button theme, too.  Or embroidered!  The size one sounds fun, too!

Buttons! Sounds like a fun theme to me. Or what about something like the bag/purse/wallet/whatever has some relationship to the maker's favorite book? For example, if person X likes Peter Pan they make a bag shaped like Neverland or Hook's ship. Er, the idea sounds better in my head. Oh well, throwing it out there anyway.

As a crazy book lady, I think that's a great idea!

What kinds of things would y'all like to see as prizes? Anything specific or just whatever cool I can scrounge up lol?

Oh, and if a few more people show interest I would probably set this up to begin about July so that voting would be in early august. (I'm trying to fit stuff around my summer vacation lol!)

Whatever you can scrounge up sounds fun. July sounds good if we can get people.

MareMare - prizes of whatever you could scrounge up would work fine!  Or perhaps purse/bag making items? (Nifty fabric and purse handles or something?)

And I love the book idea!
