My coworker and friend Gloria (at my last job threeish years ago!) made me a most precious gift:
A FUNNY Dirty or Clean sign for my Dishwasher. After five years and a million grubby kid paws all over it, she was the worse for wear.
Notice the shoulder? Looks like a shark got at her huh? More like a two year old. This sign is like a toddler magnet and EVERYSTINKINTIME they pull some part of her off. Notice the replaced head? The re-glued arm? Youdathunk I spent a hunnerd dollers on the thing, the way I keep patching her together again.
And on the one side she is actually headless! And one armed. *sigh* At long last I decided to put her down this week. She went to the round canister in the kitchen from whence nothing returns.
And I missed her. Too much.
So I tried to make a new one. I saw online somewhere this style with the fabric dress that flips up...I so wish I knew where so I could credit her with a thousand kisses at her feet for wit and naughtiness. Here is my low tech cardboard version.
I LOVED it! I also decided at once it was supposed to go to a new and dear blogger friend who uses the word for feminine nether region in almost every post....know who? I just adore her and the freedom she gives all of us by saying the things we "shouldn't" for us! I have wanted to create something appropriately special...here it is!
Lucky for me, when I told my friend Gloria about the demise of my Dishwasher Girl, she said she would make me a new one!
Considering the fact that my urchins will likely manhandle and behead this one too, I figure hers made from foam has more of a chance than my fancied carboard number.
I cannot offer any directions really...it is all cardboard and acrylic paint. I had fabric I glued with craft tape and I superglued a couple of magnets behind her head and in her skirt to get the flip up to work. The rest is up to you, Creative Team!
I would LOVE to see what you come up with.
