Just FYI….this is an edited post…I had it almost ready to go last month but because of my accident (I mentioned on FB), I could not sit long enough to work on it….I couldn’t even finish the video editing (still need to rest)…but I did have this project done and now, after working on it a little at a time, I can finally share it! Thank you Lord!:)
Ok, so last month’s (December) Wild Orchid Crafts DT challenge was a Christmas or HOME Decor Ornament!! One night…thinking of what to make, it hit me….”ah… dressform with wings, like an angel…hmm, that would be cute!!!..in a shabby style so it can be displayed all year long!!” So off I go to my studio and started looking for what to use….so I came up with this!
Oh yes!!!….I added 1/2″- 1″ wide strips of lace trim and seam binding and made her a skirt!! How girly is this!!?? I think very! 🙂
So here’s my intro video sharing how I put it together followed by the video tutorial! Enjoy!
Here are more photos and some close ups!
