There will be no Macrame Monday today because I've been working on a huge project and haven't had any time for macrame :(
I promise it will be back next Monday with all sorts of new ideas :D
I have had time to mess around with Barbie clothes though because I can do that by hand in front of the TV in the evening after the kids go to bed.
The week one challenge for Project Project Runway is Come As You Are.
We were allowed to use a white piece of fabric to simulate a Barbie sized bed sheet and a piece of fabric resembling our own PJs.
Once I gathered my materials, I started sketching.
Yeah... I'm a terrible sketcher.
Oh well. I'm working on making a short dress by combining the two pieces of fabric.
Here's the start of the skirt. So tiny!
Problems I've run into so far:
I am a Barbie clothes noob. I never really had Barbie's when I was a kid and I bought Aurora without clothes, so I have no idea what to use to close the clothes. I tried a hook and eye attachment, but it was extremely difficult to open and close. I think I'm going to go with a tiny snap. Anyone else have some ideas?
Wish me luck on making the top! The clock is ticking :)
