Challenge 6 – Accessorize!

For this challenge, we want you to Accessorize!!

* You must make an accessory, and for the purpose of this challenge, an accessory is anything that does not have to be sized.
* Use the JUL hardware you were sent as a source of inspiration, and design your piece to really showcase the JUL hardware. However, just because¬†something looks like a purse handle – does not mean it has to be used as a purse handle…be creative when incorporating your JUL hardware!
* Learn more about JUL here: JUL DESIGNS

  1. I know the contestants are required to write up their patterns, but will watchers be required to do this as well? This will be my first entry to the watcher’s contest, so I want to make sure I do everything according to the rules!

  2. Today is the 13th of October, I just listened to the JUL pass outs. And the contestants have 11 days from today to make and finish a project. I am not sure when you did this video but I know it wasn’t up on the 10th when I checked in for see if the results were up.
    It will be interesting to see what stamina your contestant display.

  3. what happened to challenge 6 being announced on oct 10? and then the challenge 5 was be up yesterday or sooner too?
