Have you ever taken something old and made it new again by altering it, repurposing it or adding trim, buttons or beads? The Seattle Times and Dana Landon’s style blog, It’s My Darlin’, want to see your handiwork. At stake: $100, which will be awarded to the most creative “re-fashionistas” in two age categories: teen (13 to 17) and adult. We’ll award a $50 judges’ choice prize, too, for an entry that catches our collective fancy in this “upcycle showdown.”
Entries may consist of clothing or accessories made at least in part (the more the better!) from used, vintage or recycled materials. In an email, briefly describe the materials used, tell us how much they cost, and include your name, age, city of residence and phone number. Attach a photo. Send to email@example.com.
Deadline: 5 p.m. Oct. 15.
Winners will be notified by Oct. 23.

- 14 million spilled bees on I-5: 'Everybody's been stung'
