Creative Home Arts magazine is having a handmade toy contest and they’ve got some great cash prizes! All you have to do is create a toy using any technique that you’d like – a quilted Tic Tac Toe game, crocheted animal, fabric doll, faux fur bear, you name it! Make up a new game or create new pieces for an old one. Anything you’ve made that you can play with qualifies to enter.
There is a grand total of $1,650 to be won in cash prizes as follows – grand prize $750, second place $500, third place $150, and ten honorable mentions will each receive $25.
To enter send a clear, detailed photo of your toy with an uncluttered background along with a note explaining how and why you created it, and some brief instructions. You must be a member of the Creative Home Arts Club to enter, but you can join for free and get a 30 day trial membership if you’re not already a member. Visit Creative Home Arts for more contest details, and be sure to enter before November 10, 2009.
