Description

I made this original softie from ideas in my head, for a swapbot swap on Coloriffic swap-o-rama. I named her Kelly Skellington and sent her to a new owner in Canada. I freehand painted the skeleton body with fabric paint on black fabric (actually it was a pant leg from old dress pants) and then cut around the body and head and sewed them together. I then stuffed the body and head and attached them, and added a beaded ribbon piece for a necklace. I made a red glitter heart for her ribcage (paint) and decorated her eyes with black glitter fabric paint. I lined the coffin-like box with a quilted bottom and satin biding edges. I also made her a tulle skirt that removes and a spidery blanket for her journey to her final resting place.

Material Notes

Black Fabric, White Slick Fabric Paint, Silver Glitter Fabric Paint, Red Glitter Fabric Paint, Black Thread, embellishments, ribbon, red tulle, Red quilted fabric, Red satin blanket binding, a box shaped much like a coffin.
