Kathy Houser's BRA DOLLs

Kathy is a very talented lady. Doing may types of fiber arts. She is also a very supportive person. She was one of the first to contact me when I posted I had this idea to use a bra as part of a doll. Right off the bat she made a BRA DOLL which is a Southern Belle. The doll was shared with her various groups, like the quilters and the doll makers. She said that doll was a "show and tell" for many fiber meetings. To top off her outstanding designer quality she is a more than skilled with the needle, so her dolls are lush in their construction. Thanks again Kathy for playing dolls with us. Your BRA DOLLs are awesoooooooommmmme.

As you can see Kathy used the bra cup for wings on this fab flying creation . It was a plain red bra and she added leather black spots to turn the bra into a Lady Bug.
I put up a photo of the bra and thong that she used to make the Sweet Southern Belles stunning gown. The skirt on the Southern Belle is the bra. Way cool. Doing these dolls out of bras is such an interesting challenge.


  1. Barb,
    All the Bra dolls are wonderful. I wish I could have finished mine in time BUT I'm so busy and unexpected friends and family came and are coming in town, etc. etc. I love looking at all the dolls. At least I bought the pattern and started it. :-)
    Love & Hugs
