Craft Challenge #13 - Rockin' Sock Monkeys - Due July 2 - July 6

I'm soooo late in posting this! Here's a HUGE congrats to therealgigantor for winning Craft Challenge #13 for her hysterical and amazingly well-done Mr. T sock monkey! Grin

You can see the winning entry here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104591.0




Digging around in the folder of new theme ideas I saw a bunch of interest in some sort of sock monkey themed challenge. So the theme of this challenge -- Rockin' Sock Monkeys -- is to think of someone you admire or that you think kicks butt for whatever reason and make a sock monkey version of that person. The person can be famous but doesn't have to be. Then post a picture of that person and your finished rockin' sock monkey!

In case you have not yet been exposed to the wonder of sock monkeys, here's where you can learn more. Or can can search Craftster for more awesome examples.

Official Rules:

  • Post your craft during the period of July 2 to July 6 2006. No sooner. No later.
    Instructions for exactly how to post your entry will be available on June 1.
  • Voting will happen from July 7 to June 13
  • 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 prize winner will get:

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

And a these three prizes...

A t-shirt of your choosing from the Kiwi Cuties etsy shop.

A surprise pack of crafty goodies from the Knitty Dirty Girl etsy shop including: 1 subscription to Spindie Bead Club (you get a Spindie Zine and felted bead with every issue), 2 "Rachel-Marie's Paper Packs for Crafting", 3 pinback fiber art buttons, and 1 skein of Sample Rachel-Marie Handspun Yarn.
