Luna’s Birthday Competition July 2017

To help celebrate our 6th birthday we ran a competition all about Luna and her wardrobe. Many of  you  shared your photographs of Luna and friends either on social media (facebook, instagram, or twitter) or by sending them to us by email and we have loaded them onto  a pinterest board.

Do take a look because it was a really difficult job making decisions on what was the best in each category – and took much discussion around the kitchen table.

Winners of each category are as follows
Most stylish Luna #lovelunalapin

Winner Alison Nairn for her interpretation of Alice in Wonderland and the White Rabbit – We chose this because not only are the bunnies beautifully finished but Alison has done exactly what I always wanted to happen with our ideas – taken them and developed them into something better.

Runner up is Jenny whose blog is Bit of Tea and Honey with this incredibly detailed study of Luna in her PJ’s  – look at the miniature Making Luna Lapin book!

Most dapper Alfie #lovealfierabbit

All of Anne Forster’s bunny work is meticulous and these boys are so fantastic with their man bags and the added humorous carrot detail – just brilliant.

Runner up goes to Judy Wickman whose Alfie looks so handsome and we just love his boots and turned up collar.

Best pattern hack #funnybunny

This was a really fun category and we are in awe of this super elephant created by Leigh

Runner Up goes to Nicola Yendall and her Hoppy Potter ( I sometimes look at his photo just to cheer me up)

Best Design Detail #cottondetail

This has to go to Sonia from @sewofcourse for being so damn clever with her little hook fastening on Lily’s bunny boots


Runner up is Kirsty Lorna Proctor for making tail holes in Luna’s Coat

Most Luna’s made by one person #lunatic

This could prove to be contentious because we wanted them all in one photo but we had some collages submitted  – so is that one photo made of lots of photos or should they all be one photo? In the end we decided on Christine Carrington because the bunnies were all clearly different and there were plenty of them!

Runner up goes to Little Katie’s Crafts – and I have to say this is one of my favourite pictures of the competition because the CoolCrafting family look so good.

Best Luna’s Friend #bunnysbestfriend goes to Johanna Gault for her beautifully made fox and badger, Hubble and Trouble ( the boots are from ebay for anyone who fancies some!)

Runner up in this category goes to Derek Stanford for an amazing bewhiskered dog.

We have been thrilled with everyone’s entries and thank you all so much for entering – it has been so entertaining and joyful to look at all the creativity. Winners in each category will recieve a code or voucher worth £20 to spend on CoolCrafting goodness – and we will be sorting something out for the runners up too.

We now need to decide on an overall winner and because this has been such hard work – we are handing it over to you! We will post all the pictures on Facebook and Instagram and you can vote for the overall winner who will recieve a further £30 worth of vouchers. Vote by Friday 14th July. We are leaving you will a pretty little poem written by another Luna fan Karen King

“My name is Luna hare I watch over you at night,

I skip into your dreams turning darkness into light.

My name is Luna hare I’m not just some old thing,

I’m made with time and patience and some alchemy I bring.

I whisper words of solace while your mind it quietly rests,

And wake you with new purpose and a sense of happiness.

My name is Luna hare, I’m special, kind and true,

Handmade with love and magic, especially for you…”
