I thought I'd show you a little of the process of making my girls. I've really got to think of a better name for them. Any suggestions? Anyway, ever since I posed the question "Wouldn't an all white one be pretty?," I have not been able to stop thinking about it. So I ordered more tulle. In the white, though, I ordered organza. I thought it would be really pretty. Well, it may be pretty but I've torn up my fingers tying the pieces to the chicken wire. Turns out the tulle works far better and I don't get blisters for my effort.
This is what it looks like during the tying on phase. What I'm finding with the organza as well is that whereas the tulle naturally fluffs itself out, the organza does not. When I am finished with the skirt, I am going to have to go back and fluff each piece.
Kind of hard to see, but this is a shot of the inside. All those little 'bumps' you see are the knots from tying the pieces. I actually like the way the inside looks when it is all done. Not that you will ever see the inside, but it looks cool. It also shows all the work that went into making the girl.
As with everything, this is a learning process. I am trying to get it down so that I can offer a class at Paper Tales.
