Well, I've been holding off on finalizing the photo challenge bag because I really wanted to finish mine.
But I just haven't had the time, and I really don't want to lose my readers here, so let's move on, shall we?
Only four people submitted bags for this challenge, which is really a shame, because there could have been some grand gift opportunities.
The entry from Aimee is particularly interesting.
I hope you go to her blog and read about it
Anyway, see the gallery
The next challenge will be to construct a bag using one or more scarves.
Let's try to get back on track and aim to have these completed by March 1, 2009.
All Buttoned Up has a tutorial
for this 10-minute bag that may get your juices flowing, though I hope you take it one step farther (embellish it or something)
I posted a video
previously about how to tie a scarf and make it into a bag, but that's not what I'm asking for now.
The video was fun, but this challenge needs to be more creative than a few knots.
Simplicity has a current pattern (#4263)
that uses a scarf for its fabric.
(views A and B)
Souvenir scarf made into a bag tutorial
You could always use a scarf as embellishment.
at Pernes Bags.
I like to use scarves as apron ties, but they make fun purse handles too.
Some vintage patterns (like this one
I posted previously) use scarves for fabric.
Just stretch out of your comfort zone...that's all I ask.
