Yesterday was my March photo shoot at the Humane Society of Broward County . It all began with two vintage curtain panels I thrifted from a local Hollywood thrift shop. I hate to brag, but I scored about 30 yards of mint condition floral fabric from the mid-sixties. The curtains we’re custom made, and fully lined, pleated, and weighted at the bottom. I know the average person doesn’t get so excited about curtains, but they just don’t make things like they did back in the day… I washed and dried the fabric, being fully lined, they weighed a ton! I took all the lining fabric off and cut away a yard to make some of the props for this styled shoot. Some of the sweetie pies below are wearing custom scarves with Vintage Pompom fringe. I also created soft sculpture head pieces by cutting the floral design out of the fabric, then sewing and stuffing. I then sewed them to elastic, or a couple $1 headbands. The bunny ears were created with fused plastic bags that I folded and hot glued around a frame I made from wire hangers, they are also attached to elastic and headbands.
I plan on deconstructing the rest of the fabric panels for some new curtains and pillow shams in Goldie’s bedroom, as well as a couple custom clothing pieces 🙂 If you are interested in adopting any of these sweeties please contact The Humane Society of Broward County Their names and ID # is located next to their sweet faces….
