As you all know I recently joined an amigurumi contest held by Amigurumipatterns. I can say that it has been an experienced for me to have been a part of this contest. Certainly not my last but would be the first of the many that I will also braved to join. Maybe the next time I won’t be as nervous. I am looking forward to this yearly event and will work harder the next time.
There are more than 400 entries and all are stunning and carefully made. There are lot of contestants from around the world and all have their unique creations that you cannot kick out of the door. I have my own bet that I did vote. And luckily, one of them got in! Voting was held from Dec.3 – 10, 2016. That was ample enough time to campaign and ask your friends to vote for your entries. i do not have much friends, but I still have people who are willing to support and help me all the way, of course, my ever loyal family! Haha! Am I feeling bitter? Errmmm, maybe a little yes. Some of the competitors are well-known already and in fact has a lot of followers over their social medias. Some are previous contest participants/winners too. But no offense to them, they all worked their butt-off and of course, loving the fun of joining in contests like this. So again, thank you for all those who voted for me and see the potential in what I do. I really appreciate your effort in doing so. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
The winners are:
@diyfluffies for “Mr. Blue” which is living up to his name. Not only that he is blue, he also loves games!
@littleaquagirl for her “Little Ella in her Monster Suit”, which think she is rather scary in her monster suit. But we can all agree that she is not succeeding right? This entry is one of my bet since the beginning and even if I don’t win, it is enough for me that one of my bets got it. So cute isn’t it?
Both DIY fluffies and LittleAquaGirl are runners up. These two has only a difference of 2 votes! Yes, so close! 736 for LAG and 734 for DIYF. And of the 9000 people who voted for their favorites, 851 votes goes to….
…By Bat for his/her “Solomon Sockeater”, he is a gray monster with orange nails and white fangs and humongous round eyes! I don’t think the designer is on Instagram but nevertheless, his monster is the man!
Congratulations to all the winners! Hoping they could share the patterns to us! haha! No, just kidding. Probably, the pattern would sell, if they share it. To see other entries and the result of the voting, you can visit it here.
