Making the pipe cleaner base was challenging because you have to use a hot glue gun to put it together and there were a few oohs and ouches as we progressed. The really fun part of the creation comes when the base is done because the imagination is allowed to run rampant in decorating the cup parts of the bra as you will see by the photos that follow.
We also enjoyed sack lunches and Double Layer Pumpkin Pie and/or Southern Peach Cobbler provided by Queen Ladybrid. We took a short break at one point to celebrate Marian's birthday. We had such a great time and were so pleased by the final result that we decided to make our next event on December 8, 2012 a shopping trip on New York Avenue downtown and then to Stella Vita Restaurant for our Christmas luncheon wearing these fabulous hats with our purple regalia.
