I am a patterned sock junkie and found a sock company called Little MissMatched. They sell 3 sock packs of similar but different designs so they don't match on purpose.. They are having a Season 2 sock design contest from people who wear their socks and/or visit thier website. I took a stab at it and the photo above is my entry. The deadline is April 15th and the company chooses the finalists then the public votes for their favorite on Little MissMatched website. The winner receives money, free socks and the ability to help design their socks. I have no idea how many people enter this contest and what my odds are. This was a fun project and I bought a new large box of colored pencils to color in the socks. I had a flashback of when I was a child when I drew and colored pictures all the time before sewing entered my world. P.S. according to Stacy and Clinton from "What Not to Wear" it is tacky to wear patterned socks if you are older than 5 but I stil do but under jeans and not with dresses, capris or shorts!!
Laurie, you've been nominated for an award. You can pick it up at my blog but you don't have to follow all the rules/instructions if you don't want to. I still love your work and the socks are so COOL!!!ReplyDelete
Hi, I came by from Robbie's blog. You do some very nice work, love your colors! That photo of you and your daughter, surely she is your friend, you look about the same age! Congratulations on the award.ReplyDelete
I watch Stacy and Clinton too, I can't see them putting patterned socks on anyone, but.....there is a time and a place for them. I wear them on special occasions like Halloween, Christmas etc. I'll have to check out your socks next time I see you. Yours are very original and so "you". Congrats on getting into the Denver show!ReplyDelete
Laurie, How can we vote for your socks??ReplyDelete
