Accessories Challenge 8: Bring on Spring!

Photo from PhotographyDream on Etsy

The theme for our eigth challenge is one of my favorites: Bring on Spring! You may make a boutique bow or bow set, a headband, a bowband, a funky loopy bow, a fascinator, a hair flower, or basket/tote-- basically, anything you've fashioned using a Birdsong pattern or tutorial -- following the them of "spring." The design must be made from a Birdsong tutorial or pattern. You can focus on making your accessory to match Easter, spring, or any combination of ideas that reminds you of spring.

There will be two prizes again. The first will be the Judge's Choice award, chosen by me! And, I'll describe in detail why the winner "won" during a later post. The winner of this award will receive a $15 gift certificate generously donated by The Ribbon Retreat!

The second way to win a prize is through "Voter's Choice." I'll put all the submissions on the blog and will host a poll in the sidebar beginning Saturday, March 31. Invite your friends and relatives to vote for your photo! The winner of the Voter's Choice Award will receive 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 2:59 a.m Pacific time (11:59 p.m. Eastern) on Saturday, March 24 (so, basically before you go to bed Friday 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. :)
