PPR- Challenge 2- Pet Project

I had such high hopes for this challenge. Turns out I am not a huge fan of the unconventional materials.

I went to the pet store and ended up buying some candy covered millet pellets for rabbits and a red dog toy
. Supplies for PPR- Pet Project
I loved the colors of the pellets and the red went with the colors. My plan was to glue the pellets to the fabric and have a nice textured look.

That is where I went wrong....The glue actually made a sticky mess once it met up with the candy coating. They were sticking to everything. But they were also leaving a cool coloring on the fabric. Once I came to the realization that I was not going to be able to cover the whole dress in little, sticky pellets it was on to plan B.

Emelie, my model is coming down the runway in a dress colored from rabbit pellets, and a fleece jacket.  The belt is made from tubing on the handle of a fish net. The outfit is completed with a pair of red suede pumps.

I can see the judges now shaking their heads at the use of too much material...let's hope someone uses pee pee pads.

I love the colouring. So fun! And between your rabbit pellets and my shards or aquarium tubing, the work room looked like a serious crafty tornado hit it hheehe
