OMG!! Has anyone seen this show?? I just caught it on the Style channel, and I was in absolute stitches laughing. It's sort of an Junkyard Wars for crafters. They are given an item to make, some supplies to choose from, tools, and a time limit.

The first and second contests were between two amatuer crafters. Their task in this case, was to design a handbag of some type. All they are given to make it is a bunch of shipping materials, duct tape, bubble wrap, envelopes, etc., and tools.

The second round they had to make some type of soap on a rope out of a bunch of different colored soaps, and rope. They have a power drill and a power saw, scissors, and a few other tools.

Then the winner went on to the bonus round to compete against the "Craft Lady of Steel". I'm not kidding, that's what they called her. In this round, they had to make an iPod cozy. They had a bunch of different things to work with including a sweater, oilcloth, and of course, duct tape.
If you get a chance, catch it. It's worth a laugh or two.

Ireally got a kick out of the show and was pretty impressed with the crafts they designed. The handbags actually looked like something you might see in a store.
