VELCRO® Brand products have long since been a staple in crafting circles. Every once and while we get a front row seat to some of the industry events, like the Rags to Riches competition that was part of the Craft & Hobby Association Mega Show and energetically hosted by celebrity crafters Wendy Russell and Marisa Pawelko.
The task at hand: create bright and colorful outfits from recycled t-shirts, jeans, and sweaters. In twenty minutes! The contestants went to work with loads of bling, Westcott brand scissors and VELCRO® Brand fasteners to create wearable art.
Check out what went down.

Stay tuned for more crafting ideas. After all, National Craft Month is upon us!
