WELCOME TO THE RUNWAY!
The teeny weeny runway, that is. We are proud, humbled, and awed to present the entries in Mason-Dixon Knitting’s Teeny Project Runway.
(If you are just now joining us, here’s the story of what the heck we’re doing here. If, on the other hand, you’ve been waiting impatiently to see this slide show of garments knitted for stuffed animals, figurines, and taxidermy, well, you’re just nuts.)
Fasten your seatbelts–it’s going to be a freaky ride.
Before you take a look at the models, a few bits of housekeeping:
1. Viewing. Each entry represents the work of a brilliant designer. Every photograph has with it a comment by the designer (or novella, or confession, or explanation, or apology). It is very important to read these in order to understand the process behind these creations. As if any of us can understand what we are doing here, but whatever.
2. Reading. When you click the link below, it will take you to Flickr.
Click on the Teeny Project Runway icon.
Click “View as slideshow.”
Click the “i” button in the center of the image to see the commentary by the designer.
Be sure to view all 62 entries, because there are a lot of surprises in there.
3. Voting. Choose the one creation that best completes the mission set forth in Teeny Project Runway:
Create a garment that perfectly suits your client. Get to know your client, make the most of your client’s assets and minimize the less-than-perfect parts. Fabulousness is key here. Make your client fabulous.
Please come back and vote after you have carefully studied all the entries and read the designers’ comments.
Let’s start the show right now!
Vote for exactly ONE entry, then click the “Vote” button that appears below the entry you chose. Because there are four boxes of choices here, it is possible to vote once in each box. We heartily encourage you NOT to do this. Let’s keep the integrity of the process intact so we don’t have to count hanging chads or whatever. There’s one vote allowed per IP address.
Voting begins RIGHT NOW, and goes until 12:34 pm Central Daylight Time on THURSDAY, February 28.
The top five vote-getters will move on to the Final Five, a runoff which will determine the winner of Teeny Project Runway.
Kudos to everyone who entered! As far as we’re concerned, you are all winners–crazy, but crazy winners.
