~ Pimp my Bag Contest ~


 Come do something whimsical and fun. This is a different way to make a project bag more personal.

The basic gist is this: take a reusable shopping/grocery tote or cooler bag and turn it into a functional and fun project bag.
  1. Pick your base bag. It can be any usable size. We suggest using one that has a good bit of structure.
  2. Knit or crochet panels to cover the base bag, make pockets, etc.
    1. Use new or leftover yarns.
    2. Experiment with novelty yarns or stitch patterns
  3. Use buttons, toggles, zippers, ect. to make pockets functional.
  4. Decorate!
    1. Buttons, beads, embroidery, crocheted edgings/lace or appliques.
  5. You will be scored on every element you include. We aren't disclosing the point values, 
    because we want your creativity to show through and not be hindered by score values.
  6. There will be a public viewing of entries and a vote as well.
    1. There is 2 finished example bags in the shop for you to get inspired.
  7. PRIZES!!!! There will be prizes for different categories.
