And the themes for Season 9 are....

We are gearing up behind the scenes to get ready for another season of Project Run and Play---season 9 to be exact.  I can't even believe that we are already at Season 9...can you?  Project Run and Play has been such an exciting adventure and I can't wait to see what will come next.

Season 9 will officially start later this month, but we wanted you to have the themes a few weeks early to be able to get going on your own sew along outfits.  So here they are.....

Week #1---"Put Me in the Zoo" Challenge.  Take inspiration from your favorite (or your child's favorite animal) and design and construct an outfit.  Remember to make it "inspired by" and not a literal costume.

Week #2---Spring Break Challenge--design an outfit inspired by your favorite vacation spot (or day-dreaming vacation spot).

Week #3---Design Your Own Fabric Challenge--print, dye, color, paint, stencil or whatever else you can think of to design a fabric that is all you and then use that material to create an outfit!

Week#4--- Signature Style week!

There they are...and now we can't wait to see what you make.  So....get thinking and sewing!  What theme are you most excited for?

  6. when i had entered for the audition my head got spinning right away thinking what might be the themes and developing already sketches for some outfits. well: I was right (or at least close enough) with three of the four challenges and the fourth (spring break challenge) should be really fun, too. so, know i'm off to sketch the different outfits...

    1. Love when I go to leave a question and my sisters have already ask it.
      I was going to ask what the dates were for each week.

  9. For the Zoo Challenge, do you literally mean animals, or any other creature found at the zoo (bird, fish, insect) is also allowed?

    1. ANY creature found at the zoo!!! We don't need to restrict ourselves to just our furry friends! :)
