An LQS was having an embellished bra challenge, proceeds of entry fee to benefit Susan G. Komen Foundation.  Who can resist turning a bra into something funky? After playing around with various ideas, I came up with the "Frida Bra-hlo, a Lingerie Homage to Frida Kahlo".  My techniques are still pretty rudimentary, but I had fun making it.  Dropped it off at the store for the contest today.

The best part was that except for the actual bra, everything I used came straight from my stash!

Oh, and, the back is awful, I know.

The bra is awesome, and the Komen foundation is a great cause. Good Job.

Thanks, everyone!  The eyebrow part is my favorite as well- but, the quult store is run by older women, and when I dropped off the bra, none of them seemed to know who Frida Kahlo is.  Uh-oh.  I did write a little statement to accompany the bra, so lets hope they read it!!
