finally I have one... after months of searching charity shops in the hopes of finding an interesting, old battered one (no chance!, everyone kept telling me...and they were right!!), I had an idea to ask for one as an early birthday present. So now I have my own tailors dummy (thank you Jayne for letting me borrow your Betty for weeks at a time), her name is Violet and I just love draping things over her.
Here she is draped with some gorgeous cotton scrim I bought from Raes Rags on Etsy. I just love the colours she has used to dye this piece...
so I was inspired to make a piece of felt using similar colours and then made these flower brooches.
Here's Violet again, sporting a necklace I made this week.
And, still on a pupley, pinky, turquoisey theme I made this piece of felt yesterday using oddments of silk and cotton and made several heart brooches from it....
....and embellished them with a few more scraps and a bit of needle felting.
Hope everyone enjoyed a lovely Easter break!!
