The theme for the new challenge on Purses, Wallets and Bags will be 'Craft a Commercial Container into a Crafty Carry-all.' (Props to Calabaza for coming up with the alliterative title!)  In other words, take some sort of purchased container - a pet food bag, a rice sack, juice pourches, etc. - and make it into a bag you could use every day!  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 August 5th through August 11th (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 August 12th and run for one week.  Voting will take place right here and the first place winner (US or non-US) will get:

An adorable bee measuring tape and an iCraft pin!

There will also be a second place prize if we get at least 6 entries!




TO ENTER DURING THE WEEK OF AUGUST 5 - AUGUST 11, START A NEW THREAD ON THE Purses, Bags, Wallets: CHALLENGE ENTRIES BOARD BY CLICKING ON "NEW TOPIC" AND UPLOADING YOUR PICTURES! GOOD LUCK!

Would an envelope be considered a container?

Also, does the project have to be a bag?  Because when I think carry-all, I can imagine something other than a bag!  For instance, something to be used for storing/carrying craft supplies wouldn't necessarily be a bag.

The project does not have to be a bag - just something to hold someone else!  And hmmm, an envelope could be, so long as it has already been used.

I am brand new to this board, but can I still participate in this challenge?  Or do I have to be a member for a certain time?
