Last Monday I posted a few photos of what I planned to work on during the week. Well I did finish 3 of the 4 projects, all while sick on the couch for 3 nights. The finished projects are all for Hannah’s in Antioch… my LSS. I am posting all week with them since it is my 1 year anniversary on their design team. Here are a few photos of a dress form I altered .
The dress forms will be done by each member of the Hannah’s Design Team and put in the store for display. It will give you an idea of our style and what products we all like. I picked up this awesome idea at the Winter CHA in Anaheim. Tim Holtz had given his designer friends all dress forms to alter. The finished designs were showcased at his booth. They were all incredible. I will try to find the links to some of those dress forms and add them to this post later today.
What does my dress form say about me? Well I originally painted the whole thing pink… which is something I should stop doing…lol Then as you can see most of the pink is covered up with the skirt, shirt, and apron. I love polka dots so I used the K & CO tape from their smash books and made the shirt. I used pink paislee fabric ribbons for my skirt. I didn’t want to change the color of the skirt since I liked the creams. I used Prima bling along the base & a few maya road butterflies. The flying 2 butterflies are from Jenni Bowlin. The canvas hearts are from Canvas Corp, I sewed them together to form the wings. For he bottom of the form I used a large art part from Wendy Vecchi and painted it blue and decorated it with liquid pearls. I made the apron for my dress form since I wear aprons to work, I actually sewed on all of those charms and sewed the seam binding on so it can easily be taken on and off. I added items to my apron that I like: lipstick, hearts, keys, #2, vintage buttons, clocks, scissors, and a diamond ring~ I couldn’t find my mini starbucks cup, if I do I saved room to add it later.
I will be back tomorrow with the other 2 projects I made. Hopefully I will have #4 done by Friday.
I will have similar posts all week-long on The Hannah’s Blog, stop over there as I will be having giveaways starting tomorrow.
