7:07AM - origami outfit !

hi there !
i am not sure if this is what i intended but i have had a go !
inspired by the thought of folding , i wanted to recreate the beauty of a sari which i understand is 18 feet approx of straight material...
here is rumer wearing 2 pieces of navy blue lace !
no sewing was involved in this creation , just 1 rubberband !

instead of a sari , it looks to me like the bride of frankenstein , although my daughters think it is more scillian widow !!
well , at least i tried !

8:49AM - New Theme - Origami - deadline for entries 1st July

Well...
It's a little bit quiet around here...
I'd love some feedback, is the challenge time too short? would people like a month?
If we go to a month I can possibly sort out some kind of prize/voting system, but it's really not worth it if only two people are going to participate.

Here is the next fortnight's theme

Origami
use paper or fabric to fold & create beutiful things for your girls

2:51PM - Autumn Flowers

Here's my first submission to Fashion Friday - I'm a little early but I've been making these felt flowers for a while now (planning to submit them to a month of softies this month as well) and as we have all these fabulous leaves in our backyard I thought I'd get onto it before I got busy doing something else. So... I present to you - Neener in her flower dress, tights and long sleeve t-shirt.

9:07AM - Welcome!

Now you've all heard of photo friday, illustration friday, month of softies, fiber friday etc.

Welcome to Fashionable Friday.

Every friday I'll post a word (it might be a designer like gaultier or chanel, or a mood word like summer) and you have two weeks to make something Blythe/pullip/bjd related that relates to that word, it might be an outfit, or an accesory or just a t-shirt with a print on it, it could even be a piece of art or furniture.

There's no obligation to play every Fortnight, just jump in when you feel like it.

Now you will need an lj account to play so go to https://www.livejournal.com/create.bml if you don't already have one.

If you do have one please go to the info page and click join this community!

I'll make this post a memory because I'd love you all to comment with words you'd like to see as fortnightly theme words, i'll dump them into a randomiser and we'll have something different to play with each fortnight.
