Akram's Ideas


I’m a really competitive person and can never seem to back away from a challenge. Especially when that challenge is to think outside of the box or be totally creative. 

So, it’s no surprise that I join lots of creative (mostly sewing) challenges all the time. To help me keep track of these challenges and to  make you aware of what challenges are currently going on I’ve put together this little list of challenges. 

Also if you’ve got a challenge you think I might like to participate in, head over to my contact page, and let me know about it.
