September is National Sewing Month and even though every now and again I pick up a needle and thread or stomp on the sewing machine pedal, sadly, sewing has never held my interest for very long. So what's an upcycling blogger to do when she doesn't have the know-how to blog about all things needle and thread? Throw it out to the readers, that's what she's to do! So, I hope you're game for a little "Craft Wars"-like challenge.
Here's the deal, the first ten people to post below and tell me that they are up for the challenge will receive a packet of trash in the mail from my craft room...you lucky little devils! Then it's you're job to incorporate all of the items into a craft of your choice. You can incorporate any other materials from your own craft closets (wouldn't it be sweet if you had the Micheal's Craft closet to work with?) and it must be sewn in some fashion (by hand or with a machine). You'll have until September 10, 2012 to send me pictures and a written summary of your project via email. Here's were it gets good...
I'll post a blog for every project that I receive back with links back to your blog, website or Etsy shop. All posts will be shared via Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Then at the end of the month we'll give readers the chance to vote on their favorite project. The one with the most votes gets a $100 shopping spree in the Upcycled Stuff shop.
FAIR WARNING #1: I will take photographs of packages before they go out so no cheating and leaving things out.
FAIR WARNING #2: You may not receive a stitch of fabric from me....muahhahahah
So, are you game? If so, tell me below and then send your mailing address to UpcycledStuff@yahoo.com. Good luck everyone!
