This is a project I did a while back but didn't have time to blog about. I needed a display for my aprons and mannequins are expensive. So I Googled a bit and found this amazing tutorial. I couldn't quite find all the things that she called for so I had to improvise.
Here is what I had: an old blanket, some batting, a paper roll from a bolt of fabric and a lamp base.
I've had this blanket for years! I am so glad there is a good use for it.
This is what my mannequin looked like after some initial draping.
Then I made it all nice and pretty with some batting and muslin.
Then I dressed her up real nice.
Since I had everything on hand I don't think I spent any money on it. I love projects like this!!!
