I blogged about a "Halloween In July" challenge for Cloth Doll Artistry over here.....
We were to use a free pattern of a pumpkin provided by R&K Creations and be creative.
I started my project in June and now it's September and it's due on Thursday....I slight bit of procrastination on my part but I was stuck. It was supposed to be Primitive in style and as one blogger friend told me......"that just ain't your style":) Eeeeek!!!!
I had made the head in some orange Kona cotton and I made a tube shaped body with some ugly fabric that I painted olive green and there it rested in my work basket forlorn and lost.
I suddenly realized that I had committed to doing this so yesterday I got busy. Self imposed pressure:)
So, I created a little Halloween shelf-sitter...............
I used the smaller sized pumpkin pattern for her head and did a wee bit of soft sculpture. I added a gift ribbon ruffle, some orange buttons from my mum's stash. a few pumpkin type leaves, a little florist wire, a faux sunflower and a prim skirt.....I think she's done.
I'm not sure if I meet the criteria but I like her:)
I'm joining up today with the Needle & Thread Network where you will find some very talented Canadians artists.
