Exciting news from
Maru is holding a design contest on Wren*Feathers and one other blog. They will choose one winner from each blog. Details below:
Designers your time has come! Calling all creative people to design an outfit for Maru and Friends. We are looking for the best of the best in the hopes of finding a new Fall/Winter outfit for our dolls. All fabric types are welcome. The contest will run for forty five (45) days, until May 8, 2015, with readers being able to submit up to three (3) original designs. One (1) winner will be picked at the end of the contest period and will be featured on the Maru and Friends social media pages. The winner will also be awarded a $150 designer’s fee* and the possibility of the outfit being a new addition to the Maru and Friends clothing collection. Designers are asked to submit designs to firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Maru and Friends will retain all rights to the design with the acceptance of this payment
1. These must be your original designs, since you’ll be signing over design rights if you win, so sewing something exactly from my patterns to enter in the contest is not allowed. Using them as slopers to help draft something unique for this contest is OK as long as you’ve changed them enough that they’re your own designs. Patterns available here
2. I am not affiliated with Maru, and all I know about the contest is what they’ve sent me to post here, so any questions about contest specifics should be directed to them at the email above.
3. Need a Maru doll to model your creation? They’re available at http://www.maruandfriends.com/shop/maru.php and a few are also on Amazon with free Prime shipping at the moment.
