Duck tape : you gotta love this stuff!
Here is my money saving up-cycled dress manikin, and yes it is made of duck tape. My husband put in a movie Friday night and wrapped me in duck tape. Then he cut the back in a zigzag and after removing it we taped up the back. I used cardboard to close the neck ( from a the box our heated came in.. I started to stuff it with plastic bags, but alas I remembered to return all my plastic bags and took my reusable cloth bags with me to the store. :0( New idea, I’d stuff it with the paper in the shredder. Not quite enough so I stole the bag of shredded paper my daughter was saving for her guinea pigs. To finish off I cut cardboard to seal the bottom and duck taped it in place. Then I cut a small hole in the bottom and slowly Tugged my manikin over an extra mic stand. Yeah, it worked!
Now off to design some patterns!
