Bacon tastefully done!!

Once the bacon was all painted, I mounted the individual strips on Steam a Seam, then cut them out and played with placement.  In the end I decided that they looked most like bacon when they are placed side by side as you would find them in their packaging or in a cast iron pan. 

My niece is my personal project runway challenge, so I hope she likes them. 

They looked a bit dark to me, so I've decided to punch it up with a drawstring with some more red rickrack.... or a white sheeting drawstring.... I really need to get these in the mail, so off I go.



Drawstring inserted, went with white satin which was much easier to thread through the casing, and makes it just a little more feminine.

Oh my! Those are absolutely wonderful, original, and comfortable looking. I hope you post these on Pattern Review. There has to be a special award for something like this! Lucky niece.

Thank you, I hope she likes them, I think a squeal on Christmas morning will be my reward.

I'm thinking theme's here. You may have opened up a niche market for a marketable product! All kinds of food and beverage theme clothing. In your spare time:) (we all have so much of that!)
