We all know the mantra, Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Recycling is all well and good, but the most important of these are reduce and reuse. Like many of you, I’ve resolved to be better at reducing my reliance on single-use items, and am working to craft as many reusable items for my home as possible as I phase out disposable things. One of the added benefits is that it’s a great way to destash so many hoarded craft supplies. So who is up for joining me for a Fiber & Textile Challenge!
YOUR MISSION - CRAFT AN ITEM THAT REPLACES A COMMONLY USED DISPOSABLE VERSION.
Crochet a set of reusable produce bags to take grocery shopping.
Knit a bundle of dishcloths to kick the disposable sponge habit.
Embroider a cute set of cloth napkins for everyday use.
Weave a couple of hand towels to use instead of paper ones.
You must craft something to help you keep a greener home or lifestyle.
You do not have to work from stash or recycled materials, but either option is highly encouraged.
Each member may only submit one entry, which cannot already be posted on its own thread.
Additionally, your entry may not be submitted for any other contest in this community.
All entries must be posted by midnight on March 15th.
The winner of the Spring Greening Challenge will receive a handcrafted green household surprise from MistressJennie!
You should submit your entry by creating a project post on the Completed Projects sub-board.
You are REQUIRED to have a descriptive title and then include “- F&T 2020 Q1 Contest Entry” (example: Jennie’s Scrappy Market Tote - F&T 2020 Q1 Contest Entry). Once you have posted your submission, you need to reply to this thread with a link to your post. If you do not do this, your entry will not be considered.
Voting will happen on March 16th - 22nd.
The winner will be announced on March 23rd - we will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement.
If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.
If you have any questions, or want to chat about your crafting progress for this challenge, post it here! Let’s have fun!
HAPPY SPRING GREENING EVERYONE!
