Choose a creative source.

One of my hopes in creating these challenges, is that you will consider attempting and exploring new technigues, materials, and concepts.

If you usually work with fabric, perhaps attempt embroidery, or wire, or felting.
If you knit, maybe try sewing, or beading, or paper collage.

Or, if you're really adventurous, how about basket weaving?
Any kind of weaving?

Red Cedar Amulet Bag
Originally uploaded by confections

This gorgeous red cedar amulet bag was made by Mary Drobnis, member and officer of the San Diego Creative Weavers Guild.

The bag was made as part of a class taught by Lynne Everett,
a contemporary basket weaver and teacher from San Juan Capistrano
(the occasion was a conference of the ASCH: Association of Southern Californa Handweavers).
Photo used with permission, and thank you to Cheryl for her leg work.

Cheryl sent me a few photos of handwoven amulet bags showcased at a recent meeting of the San Diego Creative Weavers' Guild.

Aren't these amazing?
