And just as a suggestion, I think a picture of the materials before being made into a bag would be a cool addition to the final product. Cheesy

I'm definitely going to ask for this, I think it's a really fun step, and a good way to see what was going on before it's made into new cool stuff!

Surely if its a recycling challenge, anything that has been used before, for a different purpose other than a bag is viable.
A few ideas looking around my sitting room, photo frames, shoes, old dvd cases, plastic bottles, cushion covers, books, figurines could be fun, old photos or art prints. I will get seriuosly carried away if I carry on.

Well the challenging, fun part is to have a specific list to start with! Thanks for the ideas, some of those are really fun!

I'm not quite sure which category there it'd go in, but I'd be happy to start it. Smiley  Maybe 'what the heck can I make with this'?

How about something that have been used to step on or in. Like socks, carpets, rugs, shoes. flipflops. etc..

I like the step in/on idea! Also, loving the thrift store idea, I live at the thrift stores!

An idea I had:
Previously crafted: old afghans, embroidered items, quilts, etc, basically any crafted item that you have that you can re-craft again!
