That’s right, it’s time for the first-ever contest in Mochimochi Land!
I’m looking for the cutest, funniest, most original photos featuring toys made from Mochimochi Land patterns. There will probably be several winners, but the grand prize will be a box full of cute and unusual goodies from Japan: craft books and supplies, strange and funny toys, stationery, and more!
The winner(s) will be chosen from photos uploaded to the Mochimochi Friends group on Flickr. All photos that are already uploaded are already entered to win! But I’m hoping to get a whole lot more entries.
Here are the guidelines:
To be eligible, your photo must contain at least one toy made from a Mochimochi Land pattern. This can either be a pattern from the Mochimochi Shop, or one of the free patterns on the Mochimochi Blog. The pattern may be modified, but not beyond recognition from the original pattern.
How to enter
Simply upload your photo(s) to the Mochimochi Friends Flickr group. If you don’t have a Flickr account, it is free and easy to register (though I would recommend signing up as soon as possible, because it takes a little time for your account to be approved for sharing photos in a group). You can upload as many photos as you want, but please try to be reasonable!
The last day to enter the contest is November 30th. I’ll be announcing the winner(s) shortly thereafter. Before I announce to everyone, I will contact the winner(s) for their home address for shipping.
As I mentioned, all of the photos that are already in the group are already entered in the contest. And there are some great ones! Here are a few, to get you inspired:

So get knitting and shooting! If you have any questions, you can leave comments to this post, or email me at info [at] mochimochiland [dot] com.
I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!
