Yesterday, I spent an afternoon at Hancock Fabric teaching a workshop to a wonderful group of 4H young seamstresses-to-be…
playing with saran wraps
and polyester stuffing.
For some reason, alien forms like this one kept appearing…
Heehee…DIY Duct tape dress form is nothing new. (Here’s my first introduction back in October 2011.)
You can buy a dress form and lose many $$$. OR you could just make one, only losing a t-shirt and a few rolls of duck tape…
Why spend $100+ when you can make one yourself in just a few hours?
There are abundance of tutorials with step-by-step instructions on how to make your own dress form on YouTube. You will need a friend, however, to help you to make an ideal form.
I had a fantastic time sharing my know-how’s and playing with the kids and some of the parents
and was happy to see what they have accomplished in an afternoon
in the company of so many blissful people! (Erin’s shown above was finished with stuffing, but, I wasn’t able to get a shot before she left.)
It’s a really wonderful, warm, and friendly venue! I wouldn’t wish to be anywhere but here.
And word on the street is that you may get to see an educational exhibit on this very topic at the local county fair in August 😀
I’m now back at work with a long to-do list, but, happy to be home, too. What’s up in your neck of the woods? Wanna try to make yourself a double?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
