While sharks elsewhere may be full of menace, our contest winner this week is well suited to the gentle medium of fabric. The winning design from our shark competition is "Deep Sea Beauty Contest" by Kayajoy, which makes the third win by designer Tamara Serrao of Montreal. Her previous wins came in the <a href="http://www.spoonflower.com/contests/83"> imaginary animals</a> (which was actually a tie) and <a href="http://www.spoonflower.com/contests/76"> rain</a> contests. Lovely work, Tamara! Read more about <a href="http://blog.spoonflower.com/2011/08/announcing-the-gentle-winner-of-our-shark-fabric-contest.html">The Gentle Winner Of Our Shark Fabric Contest</a>.
