Filigree Friday Free Quilled Dress

Time for another Fabulous Filigree Friday
Update:  I've linked to Top Tip Tuesday, and my T's are Twirled Paper, Two arms, and Two legs - TOO Fun!

This little girl is crafted in the school colors from my niece's school.

  • 1 - 6 inch (15.2 cm) White plus 6 inch (15.2 cm) Navy Blue coil them together and make a Coil Heart shape
  • 1 - 6 inch (15.2 cm) Flattened V-Scroll
  • Tip: I love using a heart as the bodice of my dresses, I started doing this many years ago and adding the V-scroll as the sleeves also helps finish the neckline.  I refer to it as flattened because it will only follow the shape of your heart.  The deeper the top "V" of your heart, the deeper the v-scroll.
  • See the photos

  • 2 - White 6 inch (15.2 cm) Marquise
  • 1 - Navy Blue 6 inch (15.2 cm) Marquise
  • I made both of these very loose so that they would be longer
  • Glue at tip, place Blue in the center
  • I then created a top layer for dimension to the skirt
  • 2 - 4 inch (10.2 cm) Marquise
  • Take a piece of they Navy Blue quilling paper and go around the white
  • Glue these on top of the larger Marquise made previously

  • Face: a 4 inch (10.2 cm) Loose Coil in White
  • Arms/Hands: 2 - 2 inch (5.1 cm) strip, coil only one end 3 - 4 times to make the hands
  • Legs/Feet: 2 - 2 inch (5.1 cm)  strip, attach a small Navy Blue coil for her shoes :-can use )
  • Use Photo for placement

This is similar to my "Flower Power Girl" these are a lot of fun to make and perfect for a little girl, young woman, mom, sister, best friend. The possibilities are endless as are the color combinations and styles.
