The theme for the new challenge on Purses, Wallets and Bags is 'Showcase Your Craft!'  In other words, make a bag, then showcase what you're especially good at - embroidery, quilting, papercrafts, etc. - somewhere in the 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 April 28th through May 4th (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 May 5th and run for one week.  Voting will take place right here and the first place winner (US or non-US) will get something really cool that is TBD.  Cheesy a really cool Craftster t-shirt!  Cheesy



TO ENTER DURING THE WEEK OF APRIL 28th-MAY4th, START A NEW THREAD ON THE Purses, Bags, Wallets: CHALLENGE ENTRIES BOARD BY CLICKING ON "NEW TOPIC" AND UPLOADING YOUR PICTURES! GOOD LUCK!

I started, but so far I'm not impressed by myself! Which is not a good sign, hahaha.

Not giving up though, will continue the bag after Easter and maybe add a few things. See, the main "problem"  is that I'm especially good at sewing, but now I need to show that in the bag. I'll figure it out!!  Smiley

That was my first thought when I saw this contest - that sewing is the craft I'm especially good at. I think I had a thought when I woke up at 4AM last night, though. I'll have to play with it a bit to see how good the idea is by light of day, though.

It is possible to show off some fancy sewing technique!  Wink

I am so looking forward to seeing everyone's entries!

Work and other things are hampering my progress on the project I want to post. I do have an alternate, but I really want to get 1st choice finished soon for the nice weather and this challenge since it has helped me make it more of a priority. I usually put off and then put off some more making things for myself. Smiley
