The Wedding Dress Challenge was such a fun project to do. You can read about the original challenge here. The idea was to take pieces of wedding dresses and create something new with them. The participants could cut them apart, dye them, shred them, add other stuff to them, anything they wanted. The creativity was wonderful and I am glad to share these wonderful works of art with you.
Here is an idea of what the participants started with.
And here is what they did with the challenge pieces. These are in no particular order.
Lita Page made a z e n t a n g l eâ art piece, drawing directly onto the fabric she was given, and using the beaded pieces in the corners.
Carolyn Rupp created an adorable little baby bonnet.
Sheri Rhoades made a beautiful applique pillow for her bedroom.
Teresa Brost created this cute little stick doll. Don’t you love her hair?
Kerry Cain made a beautiful crazy quilt wall hanging. She put a lot of time into hand stitching on this piece.
Kathy Genz created a pretty wall hanging as well with some pretty flowers.
Lucy Rees also created a wall hanging, using the opportunity to try out some new techniques.
Camilla Widegren created a pretty little purse to use for a party she is attending.
Venisa Gallegos also created a wall hanging, changing it a few times until she got the colors that sang to her.Kathy King had a lot of fabric in her packet so she made several different projects. A set of ATCs for our ATC trading group, a pillow, and a journal cover. Gail Eamon created a beautiful wedding album. Linda Logan created several projects as well from her challenge pieces. She created a wall hanging as part of the train looked like it was a Christmas tree.
She also created some pages for her Mermaids & Seahorses journal.
Linda Mangus also created several projects from her challenge pieces. She made some ATCs for TEVO, a couple of stick dolls, and a journal cover.
Chris Dickinson created this beautiful Angel from her fabric, of which she had quite a bit and was determined to use all of it.
Linda Schwarz created this lovely triptych pieces with beautiful stitching.
And these are my two pieces. I used one piece to hand sew on the front of a little bag I made. And the other pieces were used in a wall hanging.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the final projects from this challenge. I loved the variety of ideas that were generated. Simply amazing.
Stay tuned for another Blue Twig Studio challenge coming your way. As always, remember to schedul time to play! See how much fun we all had!
