Craft Challenge #25 – Represent Your Hometown

Share the love... Pin it Submit to reddit

This month’s challenge was to pay homage to where you currently live or where you hail from! For example…

What special characteristics is your town known for?
Are you lucky enough to claim fame to the world’s largest ball of twine?
What do you think of when you consider what your town represents, what you’re most proud of, what you think is unique about your town?

Entrants could interpret this challenge in any way they saw fit and execute it with any craft techniques they desired!

Our winner was krtek with her entry titled, “Hamburg Ahoi!

krtek embroidered and appliqued this amazing jacket in tribute to Hamburg, Germany. To see all of her project details, inspiration and more photos, follow this link:

krtek is the winner of one issue of The Sampler!

The Sampler is a super fun marketing & promotional tool for indie businesses. Each month, independent crafters, artists, shops, zines and record labels who run web-based businesses send samples and promotional materials to a contribution pool. All the samples are photographed, posted to the site and then are portioned out, put in little packages and sent off to Sampler Subscribers, other Sampler Contributors and members of the Media all over the world!

Here’s an example of one The Sampler package! Each shipment is different, so who knows just what goodies krtek will get!

And here are a few of my personal favorites in this challenge!!

LauPre created this guitar case titled, “Biking in PDX Guitar Case” to pay homage to Portland, Oregon, the No. 1 cycling city in America (according to Cycling Magazine, that is!).
