I tell you what….I think this year’s series is shaping up to be the best so far. Something about this theme, and the (amazing) blogger inspiration posts, the way you are all engaging and embracing this challenge, and the STUNNING competition entries that are already coming in…something about all of that tells me this is gonna be good. REALLY good. The aim in selecting this years theme was not only to encourage the reuse of existing garments and textiles…but also to put pay to this idea that all denim refashions are “Becky home eccy” (to coin a rather amusing phrase that I’ve heard several times recently). And, well….I think we’re achieving that don’t you? Just take a look at what the series has yielded so far…
Looks pretty impressive when all put together like that doesn’t it?!! Not a “Becky” in sight…and there is more….SO much more to come! If you haven’t seen already…there are some phenomenal competition entries coming in already.(I’ll be sharing those as they come in over the next few weeks) I’m floored by the amount of work that has gone into some of them, and also by the sentiments that are being expressed in terms of what you are all learning and gaining from this challenge. For me, there couldn’t have been a more gratifying and exciting start to this challenge.
So, if you haven’t already done so, get yourself involved. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
You can see all this month’s awesome inspiration posts here. And if you’re inspired to get your refashion on and enter the Community Challenge and be in with a chance of winning some epic prizes…DO IT! Deadline for entries is 30th Sept. Midnight GMT.
….I think you’ve got the idea now right? Essentially we want you to refashion some jeans! (You can find the full details/small print of the brief here).
