I recognize I am a little late in posting this.
But, my Strawberry Shortcake hopes you had a fabulous Halloween!
Now for the details...
I used craft foam to make a strawberry. With acrylic paint, I stamped her gloves and organza.
I couldn't find the right shade of fabric I wanted for the front skirt panel, so I spray painted it.
Yes, with a can of spray paint. I have never done that before, but it worked quite well!
I pleated the bodice, added strawberry buttons to the sleeves and front neckline.
I added a little ribbon detail to the waistline and gloves.
I used the fuchsia acrylic paint to also paint a pair of her shoes that are getting too small.
Lastly, since I couldn't find red, I used pink colored hairspray to add the finishing touch!
She was beautiful!
After this, I bundled her up in a jacket, umbrella, etc...
Because it was freezing cold and rainy!
All of that work and then I had to cover it all up.
Maybe next year she should be an Eskimo?
