Make way for Carnival 2010 ( Monday Bra tutorial inside)

So, Finally, I feel as though I am coming into the Carnival Mix as everything is falling in place.

I've finished sewing most of the BBM orders and jsut have 7 more bags to do, excluding my own!

I spray Painted my boots gold yesterday and in the process of decorating them
I got my monday bra and decorated it already!

Tips on Monday Bra Decorating
  • Try to find a bra that fits you well, do not get an ill fitting bra in attempts to make cleavage or enhance cleavage.
  • Do not...I repeat Do Not glue on anything to the band. If you glue on anything to the band, it will not be able to stretch and thus your bra will probably not make it around your back. If it does, your design will be stretched out and crackled.
  • You don't have to look for a bra in your section colour, all you need is a needle, some thread a glue gun and fabric or stretch sequin bands in your section colour.
Tutorial on how to make a Monday Bra that I got from this chick on Craftster

Tut no1 - Stretch Sequin

Step1 : Stitch on the stretch sequin onto the band, horizontally!

Step 2 - Covering the side of the cup to the band, wrap at edge of cup/beginning of band and fold edges over cup and stitch

Step 3 - Using a hot glue gun, stick the other pieces of sequin band diagonally onto the cup

Step 4 - Cut the strap but remember to stitch it back when finished covering the cup

Tut no 2 Fabric Covered

Step 1- Place bra ontop of fabric and cut around it leaving an extra inch of space

Step 2- Using needle and thread or a glue gun, cover the bra and pull tightly to ensure no slack spaces! Stitch or glue the edges onto the back of the cup

Step 3 : Some fabrics such as brocade and sequin tend to be rough on skin, thus some satin ribbon should be glued on the back of the cup to cover the fabric

Step 4 : Cut out fabric 1 inch larger than band and repeat the steps taken with the bra cups!
