Love it!!!
I prefer it strapless, but would be gorgeous either way.  Excellent fabric choice (and shoes...)

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Hand Painted Piggy Banks on: March 11, 2009 11:50:27 PM
I've begun making these for friends and family that are having babies lately (seems to be happening alot).  They're so much fun (and addicting)!  It starts out as just a white ceramic piggy bank that I just paint with paint pens.  I've been customizing them for each recipient.  These are my favorite 3 (girl) piggy banks:



'ballerina piggy' (complete with blush, pearls and tutu)



i call this one 'hippy piggy' (i used the last of my vintage lace  Embarrassed)



this piggy has a sweet tooth!


I made some boy piggy banks too, but I'll post those later.  I love making these so much, I was thinking about selling them and/or swapping them?  I opened up an Etsy, but don't have anything in it yet...what do you guys think?

Ahhh cute cute cute!  I've been thinking about doing this to one of my old boots.  My question is, how hard was it to do, was it tough to do with the thick leather?  And I also have the question about the comfort factor...do they poke your ankles?

Yeah, both the beige fabric and black are stretchy.  Yay, no zippers!   Tongue

Last minute inspiration and the need/want for a new 'little black dress' led to this!
Impatient me forgot to take before pictures (argh!) 
The beige part was a button up shirt that was too short for me.  The ruffles ran vertical on each side of the front of the shirt so I just cut off the front panel(?) and used it as a top.  The shirt itself was pretty thin, so I had to line the bodice with another panel of the shirt, using the back piece.  It's plenty snug so I don't have to worry about it slip-sliding.  Wink  The bottom part was just another dress that I didn't like the bodice of.  It was sequiny and wayyy too low. 
I actually started off with a completely different plan for it, but ended up with this.  For once, I'm actually thrilled with the improvisation.  It doesn't usually end up wearable... Undecided  Enough jabber, here's pictures!


love how it looks with the fur stole

That's fantastic!  I like yours better than the original. 


I'm in awe of you...
