You voted, and the theme for this Purses, Bags, and Wallets Challenge is:

Recycled: Must use items from the following lists

--Something that used to be some kind of packaging/container (packaging from food, drink, plastic bits of packaging, etc)
--Something that used to be stepped in or stepped on (carpet, shoes, socks, be creative)
--Something that used to be worn on the body (any kind of clothing, jewelry, etc)
--Something that was previously crafted (parts from a previously made purse, an embroidered item, knit scarf, etc)

The materials for your project must be 90% recycled, with the items coming from the above categories. Please take "before" pictures of the materials you will be working with. Additional items (up to 10% of your total project) you may use that are not recycled could include: thread, trim, interfacing, closures, etc, but the majority of your piece must be recycled items off of this list.

The Rules:

-This challenge is open to all Craftster members.

-Each participant may enter only one project, it may be a set or a single piece.

-It can be any style or made out of any material as long as it fits the theme.

-It has to be a current piece. It can not be something that you have already made and posted.

-Post your craft during the period of August 3rd-10th, 10 pm Pacific time

-Voting will be posted from August 11th to 18th.

-On August 19th a winner will be announced

How to post your project:

-Please DO NOT post your completed project in this thread, please start a new thread in this folder. To do this, go to the top of this folder http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=246.0 and click on the tab that says "new topic"

-Name your project something memorable, starting with "PBW Recycling Challenge
" This will help me later when it is moved to the archive folder

-Post pictures: from different angles and close-ups that help us see what you made clearly. Be sure to show your favorite detail and the lining!

-Don't forget to take "before" pics of the recycled items you are using. This is a requirement.

-Post the story of your project, that could be your inspiration, how you made it, something to let us know how your project came to be.

-Please don't beg for votes.

And now the good part! Wink

The Prizes:

1st prize is being generously donated by bleedingfingertips

If the winner is not an FOC they will receive a $36 value Friend of Crafster membership. If the winner is already an FOC, other details will be worked out, either they could extend their current membership or they could choose something of comparable value from the Crafster shop.



Thanks bleedingfingertips!

2nd and 3rd prizes will be added if at least 10 people enter the challenge.

Me? Probably not, I don't think it would be right to enter a challenge I am running. But I am going to try to enter next month's Craftster-wide challenge, Terrific Tutorials

Hmm if my health holds up I reckon I might have a crack at this one - looking forward to seeing all the ideas that come out of it!

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.
