Calling all creatives and designers! WI Life has been hosting a design a bag competition that will be ending soon, so you’ll have to get your entries in quickly!
They’re challenging you to create a bag that celebrates your membership of the UK’s largest women’s organisation, and has been inspired by your experiences. Perhaps you could make something that reflects activities we’ve hosted as a WI or you could delve into our rich history to create something that encompasses us as a whole.
All you have to do is buy or make a cream cotton bag measuring 42cm long by 38cm wide. Then the decorating is up to you! You can embroider, applique, screenprint, embellish, stencil, or even hand paint! You can use any sort of medium you like to create a beautiful and vibrant design. However, the techniques need to be fairly simple, easy to replicate and not cost too much to do, as the winning design will be featured in WI Life as a craft project for members to create!
The closing date for this competition is 16th November 2016, so you’d better get your skates on! Send a paper pattern and the bag to: Design A Bag, WI Life, 104 New Kings Road, London, SW6 4LY. Below, you can see a picture of the original article. Click it to make it bigger for easier reading.
