May-June Design Challenge Results

The theme for the WEST Design Challenge for May/June was "Show Your Canadian Colours." While the number of submissions was smaller this month, our Canadian pride still shines through! 

Here are all of this month's entries, in order of submission. Once again this month we are adding a poll at the end of this post for you to VOTE for your favourite submission! The poll will be open for one week, and the winner will receive a special spot of recognition on the blog for one month!

Lisa, from BitchinKitschKitchen, found a great vintage bar towel for this challenge:

Katie, from HeartfeltYarnWreaths, writes: I was born and raised in Canada and am so thankful to live in this beautiful country. This wreath was inspired by the iconic Canadian flag, and is complete with a hand-cut felt maple left. The 12 inch wreath is wrapped in alternating bands of crisp white and rich red yarn, and comes ready to hang. Great to celebrate Canada day, or hang it year round to show your Canadian pride!

Laura, from PrairieThreads, found some fabric in her stash that was actually printed with an American flag. She took the red and white striped parts and made it Canadian in this fabric coiled mat:

Ruth, from PeriwinkleDzyns submitted this necklace made from recycled leather and hardware:
