Tone Finnanger's book had the angels on a unfinished square block of wood with an unfinished dowel. I decided a different approach for the base. I used some vintage wooden thread spools and larger new wooded spools. I painted the spools, then sanded off the paint on the edges to give it a more weathered look. I am happy with the results. I think these will make nice birthday gifts for my friends...
The pattern and instructions for the Jewellery Mannequin came from Sew Sunny Homestyle book by Tone Finnanger.
I just love this book. So many projects, so little time!
The Mannequins or Dressforms is the first project I completed from this book. I hope to complete more projects in the future...perhaps this fall when the kids go back to school.
Crafting in the summer months is more of a challenge, but it doesn't mean I don't craft. I will always find time, late at night while I listen to my favorite music.... love to listen to MUSE.
