I'm halfway through my Pin Ups! Woohoo! I really have started to get a great turn over with these lovely ladies, I think perhaps it's because I'm throwing myself into crafting to try and forget about being homesick...
Anyway, here she is, number four, Tara the Trapeze Artist!
|Tara the Trapeze Artist|
This Pin Up's name came from the detail that I added to her bodice. I started adding swirls and whirls to make her look a little more interesting, and the more I added the more she looked like a show girl to me! I like to think of her flying through the air on the trapeze, covered in sequins, multicoloured petticoats rustling :) I also gave her lacy stocking tops to match her bodice, I think they look pretty adorable!

I really like how Tara has turned out, I just used the split stitch for her outlines, but when it came to the detailing I just worked by eye without preplanning, which was very different for me and also very satisfying. The more of these Pin Ups I complete the more I become confident in my stitching abilities, it's a great feeling!

Only four more of these ladies left now, I want to try and make each one better than the last. Hopefully it won't be long now before I have a glorious skirt to wear! How exciting :)
Bye for now my lovely readers, and a very happy Tuesday to you all!
