Eco Bag Flashmob!

Everyone, this is so cool! The lovely Russian Nataliya from Sistercraft blog is starting her very own eco-bag flashmob TODAY! The flashmob will last for 3 months. The challenge is for you to create as many fabric bags as you can in those 3 months and then give them to people as Christmas/holiday gifts. You can even use them instead of wrapping paper. YES!

I love the idea of people all over the world scurrying to their sewing machines to make as many bags as they can by December 8. Are you in? For more details, hop on over the Nataliya's blog. If you don't read Russian make sure you use the google translate at the top of the blog.

Once you have made bags you can go add an image of your bags to the flashmob gallery by simply clicking the INLINKZ button (with the blue frog) at the end of Nataliya's blog post.

16 winners will be chosen from all the participants on December 9, 2012. 15 winners will get Harmony Art Organic shopping bags from Green Bag Lady and one grand prize winner will get a really cute mandala bag (see below) from Sistercraft that includes a set of Edding fabric markers and some fun fabric, lace and ribbons (from Russia!!!).

I hope you will join the bag flashmob! I'll be posting some reminders in the next two months to make sure you don't forget! I think EVERYONE on your gift list should get a fabric bag (or two!) this year. And, you can't use the excuse that you didn't have enough time. THREE MONTHS! Teresa
