It seems that after a slow start to the August Challenge many of you came up with great Re-invention projects!!
Carla Louise made *another* item from her recycled skirt...
...and she also has a tutorial on her blog for the sling bag she made from the skirt fabric last week! You can find Carla Louise's tutorial HERE.
Janice made this fabulous Backpack from a pair of jeans...
...and Fiona made a Backpack as well!
Fiona also made her grandson a sweet and functional memory quilt. It''s made of all bits and pieces of clothing! Go HERE to see close-up photos on her blog.
Remember last Friday I showed you Susan's photo of an ice-cream container that she was going to make into something? She used the plastic from the container in these gorgeous mug bags!
How clever is that!? Susan has a giveaway for a Mug Bag on her blog HERE at the moment...but now that I've told there is less chance I'll win!
My last Show and Tell this week is from Pat! She used my Little Bird in Tree stitchery to decorate a Gathered Clutch purse (pattern available HERE from Noodleheads). I love it, Pat!
Sooooooooooooo....what is the Challenge for this month??
Yes, it's time to play with ZIPS!!!!!
I finally got over my zipper-phobia, and now I want to play more and more with ZIPS!!!
I don't care what you make as long as you add a zipper, or two, or three... ;-)
I love that zips are cheap, colourful, and come in tiny or HUGE sizes.
What do you like about zips? (or what don't you like about them!?)
Now friends, off to dig out your zippers, or head to the haberdashery department and grab a few.
Have a zippedy-doo-dah weekend!
