patterns for Fortescuegal

huggybear_2008March 31, 2009

I will look for my pattern for the lawn geese clothes, but in the mean time.. since summer is coming and if you are interested in the bathing suit one.. the top is a tube of fabric and I took a styrofoam ball and cut in half and each half is one side of the bra type top.. I then inserted them in the tube of fabric and stitched in between them to create the top you can tie it in the back and add a strap to the top at the neck.. you can add lace or ruffels or what ever you want.. the bottom is also a long piece of fabric with elestic inserted in a casting and also lace or ruffles added to the bottom. of the skirt of the bathing suit.. I then added a bow for the top or a straw hat.. and sun glasses.. cost aprox. $1.00 to make.

the dresses are just sorta cone shapes turned upside down and the point of the cone cut off so it will make the neck line and you can add collars or lace or what ever you want to make it look different. the hats are just little hats I found at a craft store and covered them with fabric to match the dress. or I just adde straw hats or bows..

Does any one know where to get a replacement goose?
Years ago I got mine from Lane Bryant catalog. My son broke
her neck by picking her up to smush a spider. I tried to fix her, but she has a hole in her one wing that all of her clothes do not cover.

Thanks for the help in advance. My goose looks like Huggies, she is made of resin not cement.

mad about mickey... you can try some of the flea markets or yard ornament type places.. I know they have them at one of the flea markets that I go to up in Ohio.. I think I bought mine years ago for about $10.00.. I use to use a plastic one for my model cause the concret one was way to heavy to be picking up and trying on close.. infact the one in all my pictures is the plastic one..and my concret one also has bit the dust by being knocked over and the neck breaking.. but I know there is a yard ornament place in Ohio that sells all kinds of items like bird baths, frogs, etc.. also check out some of your flower shops..that sell mulch, soil and yard items.. hope this helps..
