The final project in the first round of Sewing Month Challenges comes from Genie at the Verdant Violet. I sent her a thrifted pair of leggings that were a bit pilled, the core from a roll of packing tape and a handful of plastic rings from soda/water bottles.
And look at what she transformed this pile of whatnots into:
Super cute puppets, right? I'll let her explain her process: "I am excited to introduce you to monster puppets Mort and Millie and their 5 monster finger puppets, Max, Mimi, Baby Merv, Manny, and Linda. Poor Linda has two eyes. Mort is multifunctional as he is both a puppet and a drawstring bag that can be used to hide the rest of his family.
Well, I think I did a pretty a good job selecting just the right pieces of trash to send off to challenge participants! What do you think? I know, I know, I really can't take any credit for the awesome projects that have graced the pages of my blog in the last couple of weeks. So now you have a choice to make. Which was your favorite project? Just vote below for your favorite:
Fold 'n Go Tote made from a pillowcase
Comic Book Garland
Map Adorned Photoboard
Family of Monster Puppets
Remember, bragging rights and a $100 Upcycled Stuff shopping spree are up for grabs so challengers...call your friends and family and not-so-loved-ones and send them over to vote for you! Winner will be announced on Tuesday, September 25 at 6:00 EST!
And tune in all next week for a second chance challenge where upcyclers will compete to win a $50 shopping spree. That'll round out National Sewing Month nicely (or should I say, National Tricia Doesn't Have to Come Up With a Bit of Original Content Month).
Good luck everyone and thanks for playing along!
