Here's the sequins!

I know that a few folks out there want to know about my brand new sequinned craft project - well never fear! I will explain all!

Last week I stumbled about a Bling Your Bra competition that is currently happening in Wellington. The competition is pretty simple, get an old bra and bling it up!

It costs $20 to enter the contest and all the money goes towards the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation, which is a cause very close to my heart as I lost a good friend a few years back to breast cancer.

I ended up spending quite a few nights recently sewing on sequins as I only found out about the competition a few days before the closing date (which was today!).

So here is a BEFORE picture of the bra I used - I've had this bra for a long time, but I hardly ever wore it because it was kind of uncomfortable. Sorry the photo is a little fuzzy.

Here is the after photo - I was inspired by the whole idea of Mexican Day of the Dead and the bright colours of Mexican Art in general.
Here's a close up photo of the bra in all its sequinned glory.

The competition is officially judged at the Southern Cross Bar on the 28th of November which is pretty exciting - I can't wait to see what everyone else created!
