Hottie Challenge

Yes! I've finished my hottie for Cam's Hottie Challenge!
This one is not a functioning cover, because of the threads hanging off and some of the flowers are a bit 3D - sewn seperately and then partly sewn on to the hottie.

Can you spot the couple of threads that are just hanging - as part of her hair?



I've tried to follow the shape of the hottie, with the curves at the bottom

and the flower at the top.

The first time I've coloured in the eyes and lips with thread!
A delicate operation for sure.

The hotties will be exhibited/for sale at the
 Open Drawer Art, Textiles & Learning Centre
1158 Toorak Road, Camberwell
Melbourne

July 1st - July 24th.

Proceeds will go to the Margaret Pratt Foundation
(research for heart and lung transplants).

*take some photos for us Cam - will be great to see all the hotties together!!x
