Hottie Challenge Completed At Last

So after lots of procrastination I finally finished the Hottie Cover for this FAB competition.

I had tried to theme this hot water bottle along side the cause the competition-which was in aid of – Margaret Pratt Heart and Lung Transplant Research….I immediately wanted to make the hot water bottle cover like an upper torso. I decided to use felt as I thought it would be practical for a cover and it would be great to see the anatomy of the body in contrasting colours.

UNFORTUNATLEY the felt I got lacked structural integrity and was a pain to work with. The stitching showed up a bit too pronounced on the ribs than I would have liked but this was a project on a budget after buying my new laptop so it will do.

After seeing all the others on Cam’s blog I know I should have spent more time on this….some of them are just fantstic!

oh well…. next time!!

I can’t wait to see it on display in the gallery in a few weeks!!
