hold onto your hats, crazy cats!
what a handmaking showdown we have!

in what was a heated handmaking battle to the end, round B of the handmade world cup saw a number of BIG handmaking nations lose the vote!  congrats to all the teams that prevailed! yay handmaking!

so welcome to ... round C! we're down to the quarter-finals! only 8 amazing handmaking nations remain. hundreds of votes have already been cast in the 2011 handmade world cup (a superfun & friendly celebration cheering on the world of handmade while our football/soccer counterparts thrill the world at that *other* world cup!)

the winning (top-vote-earning) team from each ROUND B match has moved forward.


who will win?


schedule

CLOSED: round A :: 32 teams :: voting may 11-15
CLOSED: round B :: 16 teams :: voting may 16-20

our new ROUND C quarter-final matchups are:

match 1
 england vs. greece


match 2
france vs. holland


match 3
spain vs. scotland


match 4
sweden vs. italy


now you get to vote all over again!

each round of voting counts towards the final drawing of who will WIN the grand prize (a $30 shopping spree in the shop of your choice! same rules as before:
there will be 5 rounds of voting.

each round (except the final!) will have various matches to cast your vote! the teams with the higher number of votes in each matchup will proceed to the next round!

the PRIZE is a $30 shopping spree in the Etsy shop of your choice, FROM the winning country! so for example, in 2010 south africa won the 2010 handmade world cup voting, and the winning entry spent their $30 prize in ANY south african-based Etsy shop! :) (donated by me, rikrak! :)

woohoo!! each ROUND will be open for voting for approx. 3-4 days. so be sure to get your votes in.

the total number of entries will be the cumulative ballots from round 1+ round 2 + round 3 + round 4 + round 5!

NOTE: you do NOT need to have voted for the winning team to win. it will be a random draw of all entries!

:: ROUNDS ::
* the country that receives the most votes in each match of each round will proceed to the next round! so be sure to VOTE each round to increases your chances!
