mmmmmmmm how about old cds? the ones you record on are best cos they're silver all over....ive worn them as hats a few times, they're fragile but heat them up and they're really malliable and you can get the best shapes.

you could also do the burlesque thing of going on stage covered in balloons and popping them off you one by one.....ive always wanted to do that (strange fantasy???) x

it would take years, but can you imagine how amazing a dress made entirely out of tea bags would be?!  you could make a shift dress underneath and sew/hook like 7000 tea bags (tag and all) in layers like a crazy flapper dress!  there are all kinds of kitschy tea songs (tea for two..  the Kinks Have a Cuppa tea, etc)..  if you ever make this dress you HAVE to post pictures, it would be amazing Cheesy

holy rad!
My vote: Coffee Filters. You can sew them and dye them and they're al ruffly and cool. Youd have to sew them to some kind of fabric tho so they dont rip away.

READ MY MIND! THAT IS HOW I PLANNED ON DOING THE FILTERS, WHICH I HAVE BEEN CONJOURING FOR QUITE SOMETIME! COFFEFILTERS AND CUPCAKE PAPERS.

.

AS FOR THE TEA DRESS MANDY HELLO I THINK THAT TEABAGS COULD BE A VERY CUTE FRINGE...  Wink I WILL BE SURE TO POST UP PIX IF I EVER CREATE SUCH A DRESS... I THINK I WILL SEW THROUGH THE TAG AND LET THEM DANGLE FROM THE STRINGS... Grin

On that note you can do the same thing to old records. That could be really neat. and they are usually light enough to cut with scissors.

I had to comment that your legs are awesome. Smiley I wish my legs looked that nice period. lol
