If you've been reading my last few My Creative Space posts you know I've been working on an outfit for a friends 40th birthday party. The theme was Heroes and Villians and I decided to go as Poison Ivy. After much googling and creative thinking I came up with a plan to make a dress (as lycra just wasn't going to happen) with lots of fabric leaves sewn on..................... About a quarter of the way through this I was doubting myself and wondering if I had the stamina to finish it. I did and actually really loved making it.
The party was hysterically funny and the most fun I have had in so long. I caught up with friends I hadn't seen in years and everyone let loose and had a ball. As you can see by the photos things got a bit messy by the end of the evening. Wonder Woman did a few "Nudie Runs" which considering it was a freezing cold night was incredibly brave................or stupid???
Hi. I'm Mandy and this is my little slice of life where I share my family life and my creative pursuits.
BOB & MABEL is the result of a creative itch that resurfaced after too many years ignored. After studying Fine Art and working as an Art/Photography/Welfare teacher I followed the path to motherhood. Since having No.3 I started playing with the growing mountains of vintage fabric and BOB & MABEL arrived!
