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.
