This is a super cute and useful idea!

I'd never worked with watercolours on fabric before so even though I'd tried them on a piece of spare fabric from my piece, I still underestimated their tendency to spread so much. One of the main problems I had was if I tried to apply the watercolours to the fabric the water tension of the droplet would just stay on top of the fabric so I had to keep going over it as when it dried the colour would be incredibly pale.

This is the first challenge I've ever participated in so I threw myself into it and came out with a piece that I quite like!

I went with watercolours to tint the fabric as I've suddenly lost my crayons but they were my immediate thought as to what I should do to add colour without going over the top with my satin stitch or long and short stitch. Most of it is back stitch using either two threads for outlining or one for the delicacy I thought was needed inside the main outlines.

The other option for the title was I'm astag-ded

This looks really great! I also like the monochromatic look to the piece

Thank you, but the comic book skirt basically destroyed itself so in the end we had to chuck it out. That is a good idea however!

With the toe area, I used some plastic clothes pins to clip a rectangle of comic book onto the toe area and carefully cut around the curves with a stanley knife blade before neatening up those edges with a pair of scissors. Any excess was trimmed off with the blade after several coat of watered down PVA glue.

These were made for my prom. They are made from these origami instructions.
The big one used 6" by 6" paper and the small ones used 3" by 3". I made the big one and then realised that it would look too weird in my hair so I went with too smaller ones. A bobby pin is hot glued to all of them in one of the joining gaps.

I wanted to be different for my prom. So I was. It's a two part dress based off the pattern 6457 from New Look which I purchased in America on a school trip. By two part I mean there's a fabric dress and the comic book skirt is separate and went on over the head.

This project took about a week of on and off sewing, one hand sewing needle that broke, 4 comic books, sticky back plastic and a hole in my thumb. Because I don't like to use thimbles. It was a labour of love between my mum and it didn't even last 4 hours. Machine stitching does not like to stay in with this, let me tell you. Anyway, photos! (More photos may come later from the professional photographer they had)

This was before any damage and alterations I made to the skirt to make it more flattering.
