    Pants Challenge!

    The 'Brief' was simple!

    The challenge is to create a pair of pants (knicker's, drawers - call them what you will!) Entries can be in any medium (felt, knitted, beaded, sculpted...) and don't actually have to be wearable - just need to look like pants! An entry fee was donated to Comic Relief and here are the winners............................................

    1st Prize went to this wonderfully detailed creation by miss Bunny. You can see more of her work for sale in her Etsy Store
