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.
