Design contest: voting is now open!!~

Hey guys,

you might remember my entry for the Amigurumi design contest, Dr. Bear and his lovely nurse Octopus:

From today until saturday (25th till the 30th of november) you can vote for your five(!) favorite designs here! Check it out and please vote for me? It would be totally awesome to win something with my very first completely-not-based-on-any-existing-character-ever design! In other words, this was the first (and so far, only) design I’ve ever made without pictures to work from.

I know there are loads of great designs that entered in the contest, but please take your time to check them out and hopefully, mine will be in your top five!

Also, if I win anything, I will háve to do a giveaway/contest kind of thingy, cause lets face it: what’s a crocheting girl to do with two copies of Zoomigurumi? ^_~

Here’s the link one more time: Amigurumi design contest voting page. Click the little hearts on your top five so that they turn green and leave your name and email. Thanks!

Check out the cuteness once more:

Cheers, Lydia

PS: choosing five favorites is hard! I know, I’ve done it. If you’re having trouble finding five to vote for, consider Chance the Football Cheeta, by Lelie. He was made by a friend of mine ^_^

Docto-Bear (design contest entry)

Octo-Bear works really hard during the month October as a mascotte, but that doesn’t mean the duo just sits around the rest of the year! Instead, they try to rid the world of illness using the best medicine there is: cuteness overload.

Meet Dr. Bearnard and his trusty Nurse Octopus:

I had loads of fun designing this duo and it was a challenge for me to make the clothes (well, jacket) I’d never made anything like this from scratch and I’m pretty proud to say that they got accepted as my entry for the Design Contest. The theme of the contest is animals at work and the other entries look amazing! So I’m crossing my fingers, hoping I might win something. But the best part is, all the visitors of the site get to vote, so when the time comes, please vote for me? Don’t worry, I’ll remind you guys when you can vote ^_~
You can check out all the entries here.

In other news: Crochetnanigans is now on FaceBook! Just check the sidebar on the right side of your screen and you will find the link to like this page! Here I will post WIP’s and tiny tidbits that just aren’t big enough to make into a blogpost. And it will be easier for you guys to post about the things you’ve made using my patterns, or anything else you’d like me to know about ^_^ So I hope you will join me there as well!

Have a wonderful sunday!
Cheers, Lydia
