Handmade with Love – A Holiday Tutorial Contest

on Nov 15, 2011 in Handmade with Love Tutorial Contest, Sewing | 43 comments

12/22/11 Update: Winners Announced

Everyone on the Pink Chalk team has been talking non-stop about making handmade gifts this season. The trend of cooking our food at home and making things the old fashioned way reminds us that the satisfaction of a job well done with one’s own hands is a gift to ourselves and the people we share our lives with.

Handmade with Love is a celebration of making and giving gifts.

We invite you to link a tutorial you’ve written sometime in 2011 to one of the three categories below: Gifts for Friends, Gifts for Little Ones, and Deck the Halls. Tutorials that will inspire us all to make gifts for our friends and family, gifts for the little ones in our life, and gifts to decorate our homes for the holidays.

There’s some fun prizes too — see the details at the bottom of this post for contest guidelines.

Happy Holidays and Happy Handmade Gift Giving!

Contest Guidelines:

  • Tutorial must have been written in 2011. To keep things fair and square links to tutorials written prior to January 1, 2011 will be removed.

Dates and Winner Selection:
  • Tutorials accepted for submission November 15, 2011 through December 15, 2011.

The top vote getter across all categories is the Grand Prize winner.
