Lady Briggles informed us of this crafty contest and we don't have much time so we need to do a quick and dirty post for all you pattern lovers out there. Put down the BBQ recipe for a second get to designing some fabric.
Fabric on Demand, an online DIY fabric design resource, is hosting a contest to design a fabric to reupholster the above (and naesty) set of four dining room chairs. The chairs' owners are open to your own color palettes and design motifs but the deadline is this Saturday, July 4th, 11:59pm PST. Here in Central Time, that buys you a few extra hours (July 5th, 1:59am) to knock yourself out with your coveted and until-now-undiscovered "square" pattern.
If you are looking for a little inspiration, take a look at the previously existing patterns that thrill the requisite family.
Make sure to follow the rules, the most important being that you are "capable of spending the $500 prize to revitalize the economy." Entries are open to popular vote on July 5th so good luck and tell 'em Design Boner sent ya'!
