Default February Contest - Red/Pink Theme - Win $50 Amazon

This month's theme: Red and/or Pink

February holds Valentine's Day, and while we don't all celebrate the same, no doubt the colors red and pink are very popular at this time of year.

If you don't celebrate Valentine's Day, think of red and pink as colors that represent being hopeful for spring!

ANY craft that uses the color red or pink in some way (even as an accent color) counts!

How to Enter:
You will need at least 2 photos.
1- A photo of the item in progress. (We love photos of you making it!)
2- A photo of the finished craft
Then give a little explanation of how you made it.

Entries Go in This Thread
Feel free to comment on other projects and have fun in this thread, but only posts with photos and explanations will be considered valid entries.

Up to 3 Entries Per Person
We will allow up to 3 valid entries per person, but each must be a completely different craft project.

How is a winner picked?
At the end of each month we will use Random.org to pick winner. The winner will receive a $50 Amazon.com gift card.

Good Luck!


What is the Craft of the Month Contest?
Each month we are going to pick a theme or topic and everyone can create a craft based on that theme. You're free to create whatever you like using any type of crafting method but it must be something you create and it must be inspired by our theme of the month. This month's theme: Red and/or Pink

Well, I missed last month's contest. I'll have to try harder to get something for this month.

Can we use something that we already posted? I did one of my suncatchers in red and pink and it's a heart.

If not, I'll come up with something else.

I still have a pair of pink sock monkey socks that I am planning to make into another sock monkey "one day". Maybe I'll make that one day this month!

What about repurposed clothing? Does that count?

Ok here is my first entry... A pair of red velour training pants (I will get the "making" pics when I get home... I forgot to download them from the camera and stuff is packed for my trip to my mom and dad's already)...

Sure! Sounds perfect for the contest.

Absolutely! As long as it involves some crafty skill (not just I put my dress over a pair of pants and now I call it a shirt ) it counts, which repurposed clothing definitely involves sewing and crafting skills.

Looking forward to seeing these entries!
