Those who know me will also know that I'm very much a shirt and jeans kinda gal, but when I saw a challenge that would also allow me to use up some of my scraps I decided that a veer into the world of fashion might be fun!
On Thursday my lovely friends Sarah and Nichola came along for a play date. Sarah had brought some beautiful crocheting to do but Nichola was up for a challenge! My first thought was to use up some of my scraps leftover from other projects. My scraps are getting a bit out of hand now, I promise to photograph them when we get home. At the moment we are trying to get the caravan garden in some sort of order!
I got two of the huge tags from Paper Artsy and one of my scrap folders and we set to! Now this is where I should show photos but guess what - we were having such fun and chatting away that the camera stayed in it's case!
Nichola was happy with her tag though! I wasn't that happy, so decided to bring it away with me(I have more scraps here of course!)
This is what I came up with!
I made a skirt for the dress form using the bottom part of some paper I used to cut some leaves, not quite big enough for a full dress! The little cotton holders came from a card that had held buttons. I stamped the dress form onto a page I had torn out of a Sunday supplement (because it had a web site I wanted)when I realised it was on the back of fashion page!
My new stencils got an airing too!
Here is a photo from the side
The button and the little linen tag were in my bit box here at the caravan.
I would like to enter the following challenges
Frilly and Funkie Challenge blog where the inspiration came from, with their challenge this time - On the Runway
Our Creative Corner where the theme is Love Those Leftovers (another excuse to use up my scraps he!he!)
Thanks for looking, Chris
