Fashioning Technology Winners

We have a winner for our fashioning technology competition. Suw kindly agreed to judge the competition and judged the best entry as Tech Head Fascinator:

A 2Gb iPod shuffle and a copy of the Craftzine Fashioning Technology book is wending it’s way to hatastic.

Suw said :

“It shows a lot of imagination and I like its playfulness and irreverence – it’s a different spin on steampunk, more like USBpunk perhaps! Plus it’s a great way to recycle bits and pieces that really are otherwise destined it languish in landfill.”

We only received two entries to the competition, which was fewer than we’d hoped for, we’ll be sending out a Fashioning Technology book to the other winner Lucy for Leather tech pockets, another great entry.

We have a few Fashioning Technology books left over so we’ll be sending these out to our other favourite Makes in the making section, so if you’ve published a make check your mailbox, you might find a little pressie in there !

Thanks again to Suw for judging and to our winners for entering.

    Brilliant job Hatastic!

    Not to detract in any way from the well-deserved winner, but maybe there would have been more entries if it had been clearer whether we were supposed to make something, or enter instructions to make something?
