Congratulation to Marina_Glory! Her awesome Recycled Flannel Shirt-Dress/Skirt has won the Recycle Mini Challenge. He ingenuity set her ahead, but there were two who were very close behind. Erdroren’s “All I Need Is Uggs… Liz’s Recycled Fleece Liz” came in a close second and Prudencerabbit’s “From Coverlet to Esther—RECYCLED” was right behind Erdroren. Marina_glory will receive a copy shop printout of a pattern of her choice, a $25 fabric voucher and of course, lots of goodies from BurdaStyle. So congratulations to all, this was such a great challenge with absolutely incredible entries! These entries have certainly inspired me (as I’m sure it has others) to think outside of the box. Congratulations once again!
