I'm trying to find a good idea to do for the fair. I want to try something new and fun, but also something that will do well and maybe will get to go to the State fair. I have already tryed ideas such as baking, sewing, and photography. I really need to do something new this year.
Looking for ideas to show my plants at fair time; to decorate the scene.

I need a 4-H project for sewing. Any suggestions?
I don't know what previous sewing experience you have or whether this project is from a pattern or freestyle. But here is what I would suggest.
How about a remote control pocket to hang on arm of a chair or on the side of a mattress.
A coat for your dog, if you even have one.
A shirt or blouse for yourself or a brother, dad, mom etc.
A small quilt. A lap size would be perfect and you can use it yourself or donate it to a senior center. They love these.
A set of pillow slips that you sew a design on.
A table runner for Thanksgiving or Christmas or any other holiday.
A cover for your sewing machine.
A tote bag to carry sewing supplies, books, or whatever in.
A banner with designs appliqued on (by hand or with machine.) This could be for your home or for your 4H group.
A quillow which is a blanket with a pocket on one end. When you fold up the blanket if fits into the pocket making it look like a pillow.
This list could go on and on. Just use your imagination and pick something that suits your skill level. You can find directions for most of these ideas by googling in what you are looking for. I use to be a 4H leader.
Try here for some free patterns for the projects Bev has suggested:
How about Fleece Blankets or Throws? Or Fleece Hats with Tassles on top with matching scarves? You didn't say how hard or easy-but these are pretty easy to make. Good Luck with whatever you decide; and remember to have fun! : )
I used to be a judge for 4H projects. We'll need a little more information to be of any real help. How old are you? What is the "theme" of your 4H Club? What have your past projects been? From the look of your user name I wonder if NASCAR might somehow play a part in your project. Hm. Give a little more info and I'll do my best to brainstorm with you for a project.

Division 10 would do things like pillows, purses, hats, out of old jeans and such. And also pop cans do make end tables and such. And also baskets out of old magazine pages or greeting cards. I'm not sure what types of recycled articles I could use, and what I could make that's nothing simple like the above items I have listed. I hope you can help.
Have you ever tried making a ribbon photo holder? Mine went to the state fair or i made a cd clock or a kool-aide jammers purse those are just a few things (01/02/2007)
