Aren't you in love with the new Maya Road Dressform chipboard album? It really is so fun! I was really excited to get to work with this album...the minute I saw it I knew what I wanted to do with it...I wanted to make a tribute album about my mother. My mother is an amazing seamstress. I can't tell you how many wonderful dresses she made me over the years! We would spent hours looking at patterns and picking out fabric. I would cut the dress out for my mom, and then she would sew it. The dresses never looked "homemade"--they were always perfection because my mom's sewing skills were so good. She did try to teach me to sew numerous times...and I was a pretty bad student. I do use my sewing machine all the time, though, to sew on my scrapbooking layouts and mini albums!
To create my album, first I covered the covers with sewing pattern tissue. I watch the sales at my local craft stores and when patterns go down to $1.99, I go and buy several so I always have some on hand. I tore the tissue up and layered it onto the covers with gel medium. I fashioned a quick gathered "skirt" out of some fabric, and used Maya Road trim as the waistband. I covered and inked all of the inside pages, and of course I had to sew on the pages!
What do you have planned for the dress form album? I can't wait to see what you do with it!
