On Craftster, this month's challenge is a reusable bag.
I want to make this:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177482.0

But i need some smart green slogans to put on it. I was planning to put the Ish Flower on the pouch (because i have a thing about the Ish flower...) with the website, but i need something clever and smart for a slogan to put on the bag itself too.

Any ideas? Homemade bags to good ones!

I'll give it a week or so, and then put the slogans to the vote - the winner i'll use in the challenge and put on the winner's bag!

To make it clearer:

1st place gets a handmade bag from me with the winning slogan on it.
2nd place gets a simpler handmade bag
3rd place gets a simple handmade bag.



Disclaimer: Might take a while to make them mind, i'm not the quickest sewer, nor do i have a huge amount of time, but i promise to make them!.

OOOH nice idea, if I ever get a sewing machine I´d have a go (not likely to win any prizes for slogans!).

I still like the ring of "carry-a-bag", though I can´t claim any resposibility for it!

use the Anya Hindmarsh lettering style and, if you are making it out of an old jersey, write "I am not a bandwagon jumper, but I was a fairisle jumper!"

P.R.A.D.A (practical, recycled, affordable, durable, aesthetic)

"I refuse not to re-use"
(that was the husband's)

or I refuse to make refuse

Austin Powers style - Plastic? Not my bag man!

Or bad pun style - Oil not hurt the earth with my bag.

Use me, then RE-USE me, then RE-USE me, then RE-USE me, then RE-USE me, then RE-USE me


Creating a poll Fee - you can either start a new post, but it's probably better to edit your first one and create the poll from the options at the bottom. You need to 'add each option' even the last one... preview to make sure that it's right before posting it.
