Craft Challenge #5 - No Yarn Allowed - Due August 20 to August 24 (2005)

Let's all see what we can do to save a sheep! (he he...)

For this challenge you are invited to make something using a technique where you'd usually use yarn -- like knitting, crochet, weaving, spool knitting, etc -- but the catch is that you're not allowed to use yarn!

The more unusual the media you find to make your project with the better.  Or if you choose something that's been done before (like plastic grocery bags), just do something totally unique and kick-ass with it.

Official Rules:

  • Post your craft during the period of August 20 to August 24. No sooner. No later.
    Instructions for exactly how to post your entry will be available on August 20.
  • Voting will happen from August 25 to August 30
  • Each participant can enter ONE project

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original and has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, then just give credit to that project.

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here in the thread and whoever people vote as the winner gets:

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and this prize:

The prizes for this challenge are 5 copies of  Stitch 'N Bitch A Knitter's Design Journal : A Knitter's Design Journal donated by Workman Publishing. The journal has sketch pages, charts, design aids such as templates, pre-drawn knitters models (with diverse body types), a pocket on the inside cover to hold a die-cut ruler to measure knitting stitch gauge and needle size, and more!



(When the voting ends, the top 5 winners will each get a copy of the knitting journal. If there's a tie and there are more 5 winners, I'll randomly choose 5 people to get the journals and the others will get some Craftster merch.)

So who's up for a challenge?!


Feel free to post any questions or comments you have here too but note that I will delete them once submissions come in to keep this thread tidy.
