Remember this great book? Low Sew Boutique. You know the one. The one I've written about a once or twice.
Well, maybe more than once or twice...the Sew News magazine spread post, the showing off my gallery items post, the how to sew a drawstring placemat purse post...
Well, now here's your chance to show off how creative you can be! Check out the Low Sew Boutique Design Challenge contest over at Homestead Specialties. There are two age categories - adult (age 16 and older) and youth (age 15 and younger) with six winners in all!
What you need to do to enter
Make a purse, tote, backpack, or other fashion accessory inspired by the concept of the book, Low-Sew Boutique, 25+ Quick and Clever Projects Using Ready-mades. You don't need to follow a specific project in the book, but you do need to use at last one kitchen linen and one hardware store item.
The winners will be judged on the most unexpected or unique supplies used, the quality of workmanship or techniques as well as the overall outcome of the final product.
