Bra for a Cause-Recycled

Added Oct 24, 2008

Nashville, Tenne...






This is a project I have been working on for one of my classes. The guidelines were simple, find a bra (mine is from goodwill) and decorate it in whatever theme you like, then donate it to this contest to raise money for the American Cancer Foundation and the winners will be modeled in a show. The materials I used for this were all found in the floral section of Hobby Lobby and turned out to be quite cheap! Also, I would like to put it into my portfolio, but I dont know any models that would fit into such a tiny bra! Next week I submit it into the contest and am already nervous because I don’t want to let it go!
The only thing left I need to do is name it, which I fear could be the hardest part. The only clever name I can think of is “breast nest” but I am open for suggestions. What do you think?

Material Notes

african long grass, twigs, wire, feathers, yarn, alot of hot glue, and fake birds (my fav!)





Mrs. Robinson for staying late in the lab with me one night!

Penny’s Closet, the boutique that is sponsoring this benefit for breast cancer.

    This is incredibly creative! You did a fabulous job. Maybe you can get that 70’s model “Twiggy” to wear it for you. (she’s on America’s next Top Model). Great job.

    Wow! I love it! Stick with the ‘breast nest’ name – it suits it perfectly and the function as well. Good luck on the competition!
