Spooky Halloween Plush Contest!

17 Comments

Happy Halloween season everyone! We’re over a month away from the big day, but I think it’s as good of a time as any to start celebrating right? Being that it’s my favorite holiday and us sewists have to plan far ahead for our holiday plans 😉 You should know that I have LOADS of fun holiday projects planned for the weeks leading up to Halloween, and to kick it off I’m starting with a contest!
The basic rules will be very similar to the ones for the previous contest, but with one major detail: I’m looking for spooky plushies! Keep scrolling to get all the info.

This contest features my new Chibi Horror Plush collection! It includes my very popular Zombunny plush as well as 4 other fun animals — a Skelepanda, Cathulhu, Werewolf, and Vampire Bat ♥ All of them are made with the same basic pattern but with extra fun details, so it’s easy to swap out their features if you want to make a different character instead. The pattern will launch when the contest ends, but if you win you’ll get a free copy! And everyone else who enters gets a $4 off coupon (from $10 down to $6).

So what am I looking for?
TO ENTER:
• Entries should be photographs taken of SPOOKY plushies you’ve made with any of my sewing patterns.
• What do I mean by spooky? Anything scary or creepy – especially if it’s still cute! You can go with classic Halloween animals like bats or black cats, or add a frightening face to another animal.
• Patterns used may include anything from my free collection, my paid collection, or from my books.
• You are free to use projects you’ve made in the past.
• However, entries that won the last contest will not be accepted.
• You are free to submit as many images as you want, but you can only win once (for example, you can’t win both 2nd and 5th place)
• You may make alterations and resize the original pattern, as long as it’s not so much that you can’t tell what it originated from.
• To submit your entry, send your photos to my email address (cholyknight(at)gmail.com) with the following info:
Name:
Website: (if applicable)
Subject line: Spooky Halloween Plush Contest

OTHER DETAILS:
• As a winner, I’ll announce your name, website (if applicable), and photo submission on this page, so every entrant knows who won.
• International entrants are more than welcome to enter
• To all international entrants: note that you may be required to pick up your package at your local post office or pay customs fees. These rules differ for every country so unfortunately I can’t be held responsible for any extra charges you might be asked to pay.
• The prize will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail — domestic takes 2-3 business days while international takes 6-10
• If you did not create the plush submitted, your entry will be disqualified.
• By entering in this contest, you agree to these rules 🙂
