This Week's Challenge: UPCYCLE

This Week's Challenge: UPCYCLE

Your challenge this week is to upcycle any textile or clothing!

Whether it's that t-shirt with a rip, an old pair of pants that don't fit, or a mysterious fabric you found under your bed, we want to see the beautiful projects you create from left-over and old materials. We encourage you to give life to old textiles or clothing and reduce waste by creating something usable and new out of them.

This week's challenge begins today April 4th and ends on Thursday, April 9th at 12pm.

The winner gets a free Mystery Pack (valued at $30-$50) and free shipping!
