Squshify My Pet - Prizes

 Now it is time to share the final prizes! Our first place winner got a custom felt portrait of their pet. Here's the portrait we made:

Our first step in making a custom order is creating a sketch. Our sketch is our best representation of what the final product will look like, before we get to the felt.

Squshify My Pet 2015 - Sketches

We've got our winners for the Squshify My Pet 2015 contest so now it is time to show you what they won!
Last year we did a custom ornament for our first place winner, which is by far our most popular custom request.  We have a selection of dog breed  ornaments and a few cat breed ornaments in our shops, but sometimes they just aren't the right match for your pet.
Recently we've started doing more with felt illustrations, both a cartoony style with the Squshies characters and more realistic portraits. We really enjoy making full on felt pictures and they've gotten a good response at shows so we thought for this year's first place prize we should do a felt portrait of the winner.

Squshify My Pet 2015 - Winners

Last week you got to meet our super cute finalists for the Squshify My Pet 2015 contest and we asked you to help us choose a winner!
You all did a wonderful job helping us to spread the word about voting. The voting turn out was amazing!
Voting was extremely close, we actually had a tie for first place all day yesterday. Unfortunately we can't give away 2 free framed felt portraits, they take a lot of time and are quite pricey to ship. After the tie continued over night, I had Jason vote to break the tie.
So here are the winners!

Squshify My Pet Contest - 2015

We had a lot of fun with our Squshify My Pet contest last year. So we're doing it again this year! 

We started making framed felt animal portraits this year and they've had pretty positive response. This made us think, if people like portraits of random animals, how much would they love a portrait of their pet in this style?  This year for the Squshify My Pet contest, 1st prize will be a framed custom felt portrait of the winning pet!

Please be sure to read all the full rules and details as there a some changes from last year.
