Think Pink

This week at our cloth doll club, we had a Bra Challenge. It was all in fun and an awareness of breast cancer research. I bought a pink bra from Savers in Greensborough, and the pink from my stash, I made this!
A Pink bird of some kind.

I have also been knitting for a couple of weeks now, All of these baby clothes are ready and waiting to be sewn up. I will do that when my niece is ready to learn that step in knitting.

Costume Party

Mark and Myself at the Costume Party last night.
Leg wraps. Hessian and cord from Spotlight, sheeting from Savers.
Making the belt. Paper pattern pieces, we used cartridge paper to make the pattern pieces with, the inside from a childs toy shield, silver and gold spray paint, leather hole punch, spray adhesive round stationary magnets and cord.
The finished belt. It did up at the back with the cord lacing.
Leg shields. This was done twice, mirrored. Paper pattern was transferred onto cardboard pieces and hot glued together and the cardboard was curved and then spray painted gold.
Ribbon was added to the underside and the shields were strapped onto his legs. First though his legs were wrapped in both the cotton sheeting and the hessian then the guards on top.
