Refashion Files July Challenge

It’s a new month and we’re on to a second challenge! If you haven’t heard, we’ll be doing challenges once a month here at Refashion Files. Do you want to learn what a challenge is and how to participate? Click here.

Our second challenge is a bit on the wild side, but we hope you’ll embrace it. We’re exploring the wonderful world of NEON! This month we have a fantastic sponsor:

We absolutely love Plaid! They have a lot of great fashion crafting products including paints, iron-ons, stencils and a product we really love called Simply Screen.

Their DIY Simply Screen kit allows you to create your own design and screenprint it on any surface, but without the messy chemicals and high cost of traditional screenprinting. Both of us have used this kit and love it! There is also a paint line that features very trendy colors including bright neons. Our prize this month is a Simply Screen kit and paint. We’re so thrilled – we know you’ll have a blast with it!


  • Theme: Neon! Any refashion project using a neon color (you can use blue and purple as well) will be accepted.
  • Dates: July 2nd – July 25th
  • Linky opening date: July 23rd. This is the date to visit our blog and add your project to the linky! Only projects added to the challenge linky will be considered for the prize.
