Craft Challenge #22 - Yin and Yang Pillowcases - Due Nov 1 - Nov 5

11/16/07 - The winner has been chosen!

CONGRATS to Red Paint for her amazing entry entitled:
Butterfly Effect: Order & Chaos Embroidered Pillowcases!



Click below to see it:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=205541.0

UPDATE! Nov 6 - Time to Vote! Scroll up to see the poll!

UPDATE! Nov 1 - Time to post your entries in this folder here!
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=375.0


Your challenge this month is to take two pillowcases and embroider each one with a design/theme that's the opposite of the other pillowcase. Good dreams / nightmares, night / day, winter / summer ... Get creative and go out on a limb and stitch up whatever the concept of "Yin and Yang" conjures up for you!

Here's how Webster's defines Yin and Yang. And check out Wikipedia for a much wordier definition of Yin and Yang.

Rules:

  • Post your craft during the period of Nov 1 - Nov 5 2007. No sooner. No later. On Nov 1 there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Nov 6 - Nov 12 2007.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original and has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, then just give credit to that project.

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog

And this prize:

UPDATE! This prize is no longer restricted to U.S.-only winner!
