Some of the projects that I take on are strictly for my own amusement. They don’t serve any real purpose, but I like to have something to do while I watch TV, and am easily amused.
So I had one of these mannequins that artists use to draw the human form
I sewed and pinned this one together using wool felt and fur trim I had in my crafts closet. Although the photo is kinda crappy, you can see how I fastened the stole with a fake diamond stud.
I had this out on my buffet when I hosted some of my old college friends for dinner (Westfield State College, class of 1989) when my old roommate Lori comment on it. She then told me that she had a mannequin just like mine in her trunk. Seriously, and what are the chances? She had gotten it from a coworker and, since she wasn’t using it, offered it to me. So now our one wooden man was a wooden couple.
When I hosted Bunco (a dice game), I gave them these
At Easter, I made them look like bunnies
I enjoy using the paper towels because they're inexpensive, easy to work with and can be held together with scotch tape.
I know I'll continue costuming these guys in the future, so stay tuned to see what's next! I'll add photos as I create them.
