I am sooooooo pleased with how this turned out, as soon as this challenge was announced I knew exactly what I was going to do.
An explanation on the name - Jeannie Little is an Australian comedic icon - and she is well known for her ability to turn "strange" items into clothing. Garbage bags being among her favourites. I was unable to find pics of her fantastic plastic creations, but they where good.
My items that where used
2 packets of white bin liners
1 packet of coloured bin liners
2 packets of cleaning cloths
a roll of cling wrap (which I didn't end up using)
and for my food item cake decorating cachous
Total spend $12-02 or $10-59 without the clingwrap
Craft room extras, Zip, elastic, glue gun, and the sewing machine. Oh and two bobby pins for the veil
My reciept - minus my banking details of course
Now that I have all the formalities out of the way we can get onto the pics
Close up of the roses on the veil and the cachous diamonte brooch on the corset
The skirt is made from the white bin liners and flows and rustles beautifully, tho the wind catches them so easily. The corset is made from the dishclothes and the green bin liners with a cachous diamonte brooch in the middle. The train is connected to the skirt and is made from the green bin liners. The veil is white bin liners, the roses are made from the melted offcuts from the skirt and worked out perfectly, the veil is embellished with the cachous. And just for fun a bunch of bin liner blooms, for the bride to carry.
We had so much fun taking these pics, tho not a windy day, the slightest breeze had the skirt and veil all over the place. At one point I had to assist my model from the suffocating veil that had wrapped itself around her entire face. We had chooks chasing her, she must have sounded like the scrap bag, and same went for the horses. The local Agriculture show is coming up in a few weeks and I am going to also enter this in the craft section.
