By popular demand, the theme for the new challenge on Purses, Wallets and Bags will be 'Based on a Book.'  In other words, take your favorite book and make it into a purse or bag!  How you interpret this is up to you, but you may only have one entry, though that entry can have multiple parts.  Please give your entry a unique and descriptive title so we can remember which is which when it comes time to vote!


Here are the details for the challenge:

During the week of September 1st through September 7th (until 11:59 pm, Eastern) you can post pictures of your entry. As it's impossible to know if your entry is 100% original, if you're inspired by someone else's project, please give that person a shout out!

Voting will open on September 8th and run for one week.  Voting will take place right here and the first place winner (US or non-US) will get:

A  purse-making kit, including outer and inner coordinating fabrics, handles, a pattern, a zipper and a magnetic closure!

There will also be second and third place prizes if we get at least 6 entries!




TO ENTER DURING THE WEEK OF SEPT 1 - SEPT 7, START A NEW THREAD ON THE CHALLENGE ENTRIES BOARD BY CLICKING ON "NEW TOPIC" AND UPLOADING YOUR PICTURES! GOOD LUCK!

Question.  Would a short story count or does it have to be abook?  Got a couple of ideas and wanted to make sure before I decided.

This is a great idea.  I'm a bag making junkie, and this is a great way to get me thinking outside the box on one.  Picking a good book will be my book will be my biggest challenge.... I love so many that would work for this.....

Unfortunately, sheepBlue, you have to post it first Sept 1-Sept 7. Sad  Otherwise it's a bit unfair since yours would get more exposure, etc.  Your bag is amazing, though, and really awesome inspiration!  Your partner was very lucky!

It totally counts if you haven't posted it yet!  Just go to the challenge board (the board where this post is located) and create a new topic and tell us about your bag.
