Mad Hatter Hat Challenge was a great adventure…
Contestants would crochet the Top Hat per instructions and then incorporate the theme Alice In Wonderland to the hats. There was an overwhelming 341 submissions of these hats and was I in total awe at the creativity that was represented.
The best 5 top hats were awarded $500 Prize Packages and the next 10 were awarded $50 Yarn samplers.
The rest of the hats were auctioned off and/or sold during the Creative Festival and the money goes toward The New Crochet Crowd Scholarship Program to provide financial assistance in the form of Academic Awards for ‘creative based’ post secondary students.
I made a board on my Pinterest to show all the great work that was done. You will be amazed!! http://www.pinterest.com/19garfield67/mad-hatter-hat-challenge/ The winners submission pics are marked to show the 15 chosen. Enjoy!
