I’m rolling out the Trapped In Time Tuesday feature again, folks. Since it’s officially carnival time in these parts, I figured what better way to start than with a Mardi Gras accessory.
This is a tulle boa, made from strips of tulle that I cut and sewed individually to a sturdy center strip.
It has layers and layers of tulle sewn on both sides and is pretty fabulous, if I do say so myself.
You can find it in the etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/127893659/boa-mardi-gras-boa-mardi-gras?ref=shop_home_active_7
And in the artfire shop here: http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/TrappedInTimeDesigns/8421085/boa_mardi_gras_boa_mardi_gras_costume_tulle_boa_scarf/handmade/clothing/costumes/fantasy
A tulle boa for Mardi Gras.
Not listed in the shop yet–will get stock photos over the weekend.
One more custom order to go, and then it’s to the grindstone to get everything ready for my upcoming RAW fashion show and booth.
This was the first tulle boa I’ve done. Pretty result, but I don’t think I’ll make another.
Extremely fiddle-y and time-consuming. That baby is made up of strips of tulle (hand cut by yours truly) and individually sewn on in alternating colors of gold, green and purple.
Thank goodness for books on cd.
