Recycling, upcycling and refashioning clothing is a great way to keep your crafting and sewing green!
I would like to see what you all can make from any article of clothing. For example, you could use a pair of jeans that are ripped and not wearable, a sweater that is too big, a t-shirt that has a stain, a thrift store find that you bought just because you liked the fabric, or anything you don’t wear anymore! What you start with can be any article of clothing, even socks, refashioned into something new! Make a plushie, a scarf, a purse.. whatever you like, just make it from an article of clothing.
This challenge will run from today, 13 April 2010 to 25 April 2010! You have until 12 noon on April 25 to complete your entry and submit it. Earth day is April 22nd, but a lot of people only get to do their crafting on the weekend, so the contest will end on the 25th so there are 2 weekends to make your great creations!
Please send one before picture and one after picture with your entry and explain what you made. Also include your e-mail address and name. Submit entries to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title Earth Day Challenge in the subject line. Open to US and Canada Residents only.
Each entry will be given a number in the order it was received. Random.org will be used to randomly pick a winner.
Winner will be announced on April 25th sometime in the evening. :) Winner will receive a set of my Crochet cotton facial rounds from WhiteDandelion which are a great alternative to disposable cotton balls and the sweater of their choice from EcoWoolies to keep on being green!
