Back in November, I announced that I would have a contest on my facebook page to end all contests. When I got 500 fans, I said, I would let everyone "nominate" their choice of a new CraftyisCool design. When all the submissions came through, I would choose ten that were best suited for amigurumi and that I thought fit in with my other designs. Each would be sketched out, listed on my fan page, and voted on by CraftyisCool fans. The winning design would be turned into a CraftyisCool pattern, and the finished toy would be gifted to the person who came up with the idea.
Glee! That means that Jennifer Williams will be receiving her own Sue! Congratulations, Jennifer!
When the pattern is finished, I will be making it free for a limited time with a $10 or more purchase from either my Etsy shop or my Ravelry shop.
In other news, before Christmas, a friend of Parker Jacobs, an absolutely AMAZING artist and the art director for a little show you may have heard of, Yo Gabba Gabba (!), decided he needed a mini-me for an extra-special Christmas gift! Who doesn't?! So she ordered him a little Parker, complete with props, sunglasses, and a hat. He's in a 60s spy-themed band called GOGO13 and plays the ukulele, so naturally his little yarn-self plays one too. Did you know Parker's cool trick is baking special birthday cakes? He was thoughtful enough to send me this awesome photo! They look alike, right?!
