Typography Challenge Winners!

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like ages ago that we were working on completing our typography challenge entries.  You see, it was way back in mid February when Keren (sew la vie!) and I started recruiting participants, the challenge ran through March, and then we voted all through April.  And now I bet you're super curious about who captured the most votes.  Well, don't scroll down yet!  I consider that cheating.

A brief challenge history:

First we had the Retro Pillow Challenge, then the Solids-Only Tote Challenge, then the Naughty Notions Challenge, and now we finally bringing the Typography Challenge to a close.  Next up for May 2012 is the "I Will Wear it in Public!" Garment Sewing Challenge.

About voting:

Keren and I use Polldaddy.com to create a poll for each challenge.  The poll lasts for one month.  The 3 entries with the most votes are hailed as challenge winners and receive super-neato badges and bragging rights.  Anyone can vote once per day.  In the spirit of good sportsmanship, we only ask that no one offer anything in exchange for votes.

To all the challenge participants:

Thanks so much for all your hard work.  Not only did you strive to follow the challenge guidelines and submit your creative entries before the deadline, you worked hard to promote the challenge as well.  Thank you so much!  Let's take one more look at the wonderful entries:
