We've created four craft categories to challenge your skills, inspire your imagination and show us your craft passion. They are:
Play Ball: This category celebrates the most inspired use of yarn. Be it by stitch, loop or some other daring technique, show us just how far some skeins of yarn can go when put to the challenge.
All That Glitters: You'll have to get your bling on for this category, for we are looking for the most spellbinding use of embellishment. Think: eye-catching, head turning, and Va Va Voom WOW!
Eco-Chic: If you are an ardent recycler or a master of innovation (or both) this category is for you. Make a tote bag out of the brilliant use of recycled, or unconventional materials.
The Omni-Crafter Special: If you are the lucky challenge hopeful who simply can't decide which one of your crafty passions to employ, try all of them. This category challenges you to make artful use of as many DIY talents you can get into the making of one awesome tote.
Here's how to enter:
- Title of your bag
- A brief description of how you created it, the category that you are entering and a sentence or two telling us why you should win.
