Crafty Challenge Alert: $40 and less DIY Projects


Hankering for a new sewing machine? Well here is your opportunity to win a Singer 8763 Curvy! Venus Zine has teamed with the sewing machine company to bring you the fourth annual Craft-Off. You need to have a great DIY gift idea which costs less than $40 to make. Here’s some of what the editors are looking for, according to the site:
“We’re looking for jewelry, clothing, home decor, furniture, bags, accessories, bath and body works, pet goodies, and whatever else you can think of. Try to come up with unexpected uses for objects, or put a new spin on an old favorite. Surprise us with your boundless creativity. The mission is to create gifts to give during the holiday season, but your project doesn’t need to be holiday-themed.”
The best entries will be culled from the submissions; their designers will be featured in the winter issue of Venus Zine. Deadline for submissions is September 18, so get moving!
