I would call myself a Pinterest dabbler at this point. Aside from the endless recipes, I’m amazed by the craftiness of the pins that I’ve seen.
So, I had a thought today…
We have a BUNCH of misprinted t-shirts. We’ve had them since October 2009 and just haven’t come up with a way to use all of them.
Seems like a challenge perfect for crafters, whether they’re on Pinterest or not. It’ll be simple – I’ll mail you a shirt or shirts, you create something (bonus points for creating something the chimps will love), you send us back your creation, we’ll share it with others on Pinterest and vote on the best. We’ll come up with some prizes too. If appropriate, we’ll give your creation to the chimps to see what they make of it.
Go to the link of the pin on Pinterest that explains the challenge and share widely with your crafty friends. The more creations we get, the more fun it will be. I’ll set the deadline based on the interest we get in the project.
Here’s a photo of the shirts:
The printer reversed the image on the shirts, which resulted in a demon-like image of Jody (too scary to show in full view). We don’t want people walking around wearing the shirts and we don’t want to do anything with them that preserves that image, though cutting the image out and using the web address would be okay.
Ready to craft? Just email me (email@example.com) and tell me how many shirts you need. I’ll answer any questions you have and give you some more guidelines if you want to make something for the chimps.
