Hi everyone, today I thought I'd show you a fun project I've been working on. On Friday I was visiting my local "Kaiser" outlet store, I picked up this kit for $5.00 . The money for the kit was donated to raise money for Cancer. My challenge was to make these 2 circle craft wood pieces look like a bra and to decorate it with what was in my little bag.........Which I thought wasn't much! Initially the color combinations didn't do much for me either, I wouldn't have put the hot pink ribbon with this job was to make it work.

I did add one extra item........thats the paper below. I cut a strip, sewed down the center, then pulled the threads to gather it up.

Ta da!   Here's my Bra.........I'm quite happy with the end result. I think the colors came together OK.
The flowers were punched out with the left over paper.

Now I take my finished Bra back to the Kaiser store, it will be on display with a heap of others. At the end of the month they will be judged, the person who wins gets a voucher to spend in the shop!

So what do you think of my Bra? I need to give it a name........any ideas?

Hope you are having a great weekend.......



  1. Mum, I LOVE this!! Very cool!! I love the colour! And the flowers are perfect! Also the way you tied the ribbon into a cancer pink ribbon!! GREAT!

    Tori xxxxxxxxx :)

  2. Ditto to everything Tori said. I would have been very stuck, How about "double bling" or the bling bling bras

  3. OMG!!!!!!!
    Tracey i just LOVE this its soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo pretty!!!


  4. What a neat idea. Who would have guessed you could make something so cool with those two plain circles. Great job!

    Georgiana : )

    P.S. Sorry...not too good with names!

  5. This is an adorable bra - and what a fun way to raise money for BCR. I love what you did with the mis-matched pieces, especially the "lacy" strips along the top. What a clever idea with the "cancer" pink ribbons. Looove it.

  6. Tracey,
    So cute....I am not good with names. How about "Pretty In Pink" -- Double Pink Delight --
    Did you get my family Web Page..... Hope you enjoyed it. It had 6 pages and music on each one.

  7. Saw the girls making their's when I was there last week. looks really good.

  8. How fun.
    Your bra is very glamous.

  9. What a hilarious idea - but SUCH a fantastic way to raise awareness and funds. I LOVE it!! You've done such a wonderful job with your bra too. Best of luck in the competition.
    The only name I can think of is "Full Support" - double meaning with the support of a bra combined with support of the cause. I like the other suggestions better though!

  10. Great job on this project. What a wonderful way to raise funds and awareness!
