Shell to Full Fugure

Ive had this mannequin shell for a while. I really wanted her to have more definitiion.  She had a broken leg that I taped for stabilization.
 
 
I had several bags of filling that I purchased from garage sales. I decided to start with an old blanket that I shaped to fit inside her shell and taped it in place.
 
Once I was finished adding extra filling to get the right shape, I covered her in masking tape which held everything in place
I then covered her with decoupaged pieces of a vintage pattern 
I really like the way she turned out. Great for displaying jewerly, clothes, etc.

From a shell of a mannequin to a full body for under a dollar. I love it when I can use what I already have!
