Welcome to this month's challenge!
First of all, we must apologise for us not being around these past few months. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we were unable to run the challenge regularly. However, we have now reorganised so ensure that the monthly challenge is back, and here to stay!
So to start as we mean to go on - September's challenge subject is 'Weddings'. All different types of crafting can be used to make something for this challenge. From cakes to jewellery and sewing to card making.
We hope that you get involved in this challenge, and to have as many makers involved as possible, could you please promote the challenge via Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google +, Instagram etc.
Here's what two members of the Design Team came up with.
Sharon from The Old Button has made a wedding heart "Something Old.... Something Blue"
It is made from recycled materials left over from her own wedding 18 years ago. The guipure lace was used on her bodice, and the ribbon trim was used on the hem of her skirt and train. The blue silk was used to make the bridesmaids' dresses, and the silver button is a spare left over from the men's waistcoats.
Louise from Elsie May and Bertha created a ring pillow. Again, she used materials from her own wedding dress to make this pillow. (You can see how she made it on her blog).
The makes entered into this month's challenge will be judged buy the Design Team and the top ten makes will be featured on this blog next month. There's also a prize for the best make, for this challenge, a couple of lovelies from Elsie May and Bertha (a needle case, pincushion and a lavender pillow).
