Right you lot!! NOW, it’s over to you! You have until midnight 31st Oct 2018 (GMT) to share your take on this challenge to be in with a chance of winning the amazing prize package (Now worth over £1300!) We want to see your inspiration image, your before photo, and your final creation. You can use any thrifted/preloved garments, bedding, accessories etc you like. I am drawing a line in the sand here and saying, simply using thrifted yardage (ie fabric that has never been anything else and is just the result of someone destashing there fabric to a local charity shop) doesn’t quite fit the spirit of the challenge. The challenge is reimagining something that was once something else, and turning it into your take on your inspo image. So far we’ve had garments, curtains, quilts bags and shoes/boots as an example. The brief is really open so go for it! (I keep hoping someone will do something with an old wetsuit!!)
UPDATE: 2 prizes have been added since the original prize post:
These beautiful hand finished Japanese shears from Beyond Measure…
And £20 to spend at Like Sew Amazing…
So that’s it. The end of this blogger element. And now it’s over to you!!!! The stars of this show. We want to see YOUR #inspiredby refashions! (They’re starting to trickle through already. SO exciting!!) It’s very likely, that this will be the last series of The Refashioners. It’s alot to organise, and part of me feels like we’ve achieved what we set out to do; and also that some things are best finished on a high….rather than milking the life out it until it becomes something….well…not so awesome as it is now. So this may very well be your last chance to enter. If you are one of those people that has watched from afar and thought, “oooh, I’ll enter that one day”….my friends, that day is here. Go for it!!
