Craft Challenge #7 - New Life for Old Jeans - Due November 5 to November 9 (2005)
If you're anything like me you hold onto many a pair jeans that you know either don't fit or are horribly out of fashion thinking "some day I'll make these into something
." Well now's your chance! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make something new and clever out of an old pair of jeans! (Or more than one pair of old jeans!) The denim should be the focal point of your project but other things can be used like traditional crafting supplies and other embellishments.Official Rules:
- Post your craft during the period of November 5 to November 9. No sooner. No later.
Instructions for exactly how to post your entry will be available on November 5.
- Voting will happen from November 10 to Novemer 14
- Each participant can enter ONE project
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 first place winner gets:
(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
AND ... For this challenge the publishers of the new craft book Bazaar Bizarre: Not Your Granny's Crafts
have donated five copies of this book! So the top five vote getters each receive a copy of this book.
This book is by Greg Der Ananian, a longtime cross-stitcher and crafting aficionado who launched Bazaar Bizarre, a punk rock crafting fair, in Boston in 2001. In its third year, the bazaar spread to Los Angeles and Cleveland and now attracts vendors of kitschy, retro, and utterly unique fashions and accessories as well as aspiring crafters.
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.
