Hair Bow/Flower Challenge 3: Off to the State Fair!

Image by Lora Risley Images

The theme for our third challenge is "Off to the State Fair!" You may make a boutique bow or bow set, a headband, a bowband, a funky loopy bow, a fascinator, a hair flower -- basically, anything you've fashioned out of ribbon or fabric -- following this theme. This time, the hair bow or flower must be made from a Birdsong tutorial or pattern. The state fair is a time of carnival rides, "fair" food, animal showings, 4H projects, freak shows and magic. What type of hair accessory can you make that will follow this theme?

There will be two prizes again! The first will be a "Judge's Choice" Award. Our judge is Jen of Tie Dye Diva. Jen is a fantastic pattern designer and has a great eye for color and design. The winner of the Judge's Choice award will receive a $15 gift certificate from The Ribbon Retreat!
The second way to win a prize is through "Voter's Choice." I'll put all the bows on the blog and will host a poll in the sidebar, beginning Friday, August 5. Invite your friends and relatives to vote for your bow! The winner of the Voter's Choice Award will receive your choice of either a selection of unused ribbons and notions from my personal stash, or a FREE e-book from Birdsong Bows and Patterns.
To enter, E-mail your best photograph of your finished product (either on a model or not) to me at deanna [at] by 3 a.m. Pacific time (midnight Eastern) on Thursday, August 4 (so, basically before you go to bed Wednesday night). Please keep your photos around 600 pixels wide, so that they're neither too big nor too small. And remember: They must be recognizably made using at least one Birdsong tutorial or pattern. No more than one entry/photo per contestant, please. If you're on Flickr, feel free to post a photo to the Birdsong Flickr Photo Group as well, for all to see!
Good luck! I can't wait to see your entries. :)

I thought that I had read that you changed the date for this challenge, if so, when are entries due?

Thanks for the added time and the information, it gives me time to be able to create an item :)
