So my friend Sarah mentioned to me “hey let’s enter the Wearable Arts Show!” I said ok.

I got busy saving plastic film, wrap, foil, and used plastic bags.  I developed a way of making snippets and nesting them into colours.  I then ironed them between waxed paper and voila… splendid sparkly snowflakes of all colours.

So then I cut the new plastic material into triangles and machine sewed them onto an old wedding dress.  I know I make it sound so simple but believe me..tedious.  Plus I made a lot of mistakes but eventually found the style and method I wanted.  Here is a picture of the beginnings.photo 1
