Hi everybody, well I saw one of these at Joann's and just had to try an make one myself. I made a mini dress form out of pillow stuffing and duct tape the I hot glued and taped it to an old candle holder. I the made a dress to fit over it with some left over fabric from my pop tab purse and added some frilly lace from old lingerie I never wear and some ribbon and finished it of with a little rose...THEN I STABBED IT REPEATEDLY! LOL...

I think it came out super cute...had to share! :-)




Was I supposed to post this Somewhere else?
oh yeah...its about 2 inches taller than a regular sized water bottle. :-)

How did you get the stuffing to be so well shaped? Great job, looks as good as commercial one.

LOVE IT! I saw something like that at a local fabric store for like $30!!!! I wanted it REALLY baaadddd... but, not for $30!  Grin (Broke college student and all, lol) Plus I figured it couldnt be too hard to make Roll Eyes Great idea on the candle holder, that was the only real thing I was having a hard time figuring out.

Thanks!
