And the winner is...

Hannah Whittall with her fabulous Fresh Milk design!

Hannah's design was chosen from across hundreds of entries; we love its vintage feel, stripy straw (very on trend!), and fantastic, hand-drawn typography.

After whittling down all the entries to the top 15 designs (which can be viewed over on our facebook Design Competition 2014 Gallery), we then chose the winner and runners-up with the help of our fabulous guest judges, Michelle Alger, Head of Home for Heal’s and Mollie Makes Editor, Lara Watson. We were only planning on having two runners-up this year, but really couldn't come to a decision so we have three!

Pictured (from top to bottom): In second place, Dust if you Must by Lisa Curtis, and joint third place going to Fishy by Svenja Borghans and Rabbit Garden by Sophie Wainwright. Prizes will be winging their way to the winner and runners-up next week.

Fresh Milk will be available to buy from in a couple of month's time - we'll keep you posted! In the meantime if, like us, you like Hannah's style, why not check out her portfolio:

Finally, thanks to everyone who entered the competition. The calibre of designs was incredibly high this year and we had some really tough decisions to make. We appreciate the fact that each design takes time and talent and feel very humbled that so many people submitted entries. Thank you, and we look forward to next year!

Release the Hybrid Hounds...

Rubber chickens and Bonio biscuits at the ready... the Hybrid Hounds have arrived!

Designed by lovely Lucie Sheridan, our new range of tea towels depicts Poodle crossbreeds in all their colourful and crazy glory. Honestly, who wants a Schnauzer when you could have a Schnoodle?

Pieminister + ToDryFor = PRIZES Galore!

To celebrate last week's Pie Week we've teamed up with everyone's favourite pie brand, Pieminister, to offer one lucky winner a box of 6 of their delicious new lighter pies and a signed copy of their incredible cookbook, A Pie for All Seasons.

As we're big (quite literally) pie fans, the new lighter pies are like a calorie-counting gift from the pie gods. There's Kooky Chook, a free range British chicken, sweet potato, chilli, and coconut pie (Sally's favourite); Chickalito, a free range British chicken and free range British dry cured ham pie (Dave's favourite); and Light as a Feta, a butternut squash, sun-dried tomato, and feta pie (Sally's mum's favourite)!

So... how do you win this amazing pie-tastic prize? Simply follow both ToDryFor and Pieminister (as if you don't already!!?) on twitter and tweet the following:

I pray to the pie gods to give me @pieminister @ToDryFor PRIZES #hungryforpies

The closing date is this Friday 14th March, 2014. We'll pick a lucky winner at random and then if that's you, all you need to do is DM us with your postal address and the pies and book will magically arrive on your doorstep. Boom!

Best of luck! Sally and Dave x

PS - If you don't live near a Pieminister shop don’t worry, as they’ll deliver direct to your mouth! We are in heaven...
