Challenge 19 Out of a Hat Creations.

Hello Friends

Here we are into August already and up to number 19 with the challenges at Out of a Hat Creations. I have had a ball crafting with the other Hatters and seeing what comes out of Vic's hat for us to get our crafty brains working.

 Thank you Janet for hosting a prize draw in July the winner is Tracy from Paper Craft Nut. Congratulations Tracy and I hope you enjoy the Tando set.

The challenge for this week at 'Hatters' is LINES . A very wide subject for sure so lots to think about. I went over the top with this one mainly because I bought this amazing body form for 20p at the carboot sale. It is almost 3 feet high and was easier to work with than a small one.

Hope you will pop to the other Hatters, Florence, Sandra and Janet's blogs to see what they have made for this challenge

Here is the finished dress that I made, with a gentle breeze blowing the pure silk waist feature.

A touch of humour--hope you are laughing lol- 

Bee Line Designs have a new Line with an unusual hem Line
Suitable to wear for Line dancing or for work depending on your Line of work.
You can order onLine but there is a dead Line so get in Line and order ASAP

Lots of lines everywhere

first of all I designed an A4 page in Paint Shop Pro
This was printed onto 2 sorts of paper-one strong white and the other Gold Parchment paper that contains 25% cotton fibres so is easy to work with for this sort of thing
I cut out lots of shaped pieces in both papers and joined them alternately until I had a skirt that fitted the 'model'. They were then stuck with tape but they could have been sewn

All that remained was to make a top for the dress and I cut a bit more from my treasured old silk scarf to make a gypsy type tie for the waist

I really enjoyed making this. Hope you will join in a show us what you make of the lines challenge.
