Ruth Ellen left me a comment to say that she is joining the bags of fun challenge . So a large friendly wave goes out to Ruth Ellen. For those who are following this do take a look at what is happening over on the Bags of fun flickr group as many of the bags are really starting to take shape and are quite advanced in the process. I am enjoying looking at each persons progress. My own bag has not been picked up since the weekend but I plan to work on it a little more tonight.
For those who have just swung by this site this challenges is to take a pair of old jeans and turn them into a bag embellishing it using any technique available to textile practitioners. Options are wide open, to encourage people to use their imagination and creativity. It’s a case of anything goes. There is no theme nor does it have to be in any period style or limited to any one technique. The bag just has to be embellished anyway you wish.
The deadline is November 8th. Anyone can join in at any stage if they feel so inclined just email me or leave a comment. In other words there is no deadline to sign up just a deadline to complete. When the bags are completed I will create a gallery page for all participants and host it on my site. A full list of participants is to be found at the bottom of the bags of fun challenge guidelines page.
