An Altered sick bowl!!!!

Some of you may know that I recently had a small op from which I am all recovered now, but on the way home I felt a bit queasy so brought home several of these papier mache sick bowls.

Needless to say I didn't use them but couldn't bring myself to throw them away! Jess has asked me several times for a bowl to put her bits and pieces of jewellery in when she takes it off at night so this seemed like the ideal thing to alter!

First I trimmed off that rim then I found the scraps of fabric left over from her cushion and chopped them into bits before glueing them all over the bowl. I covered the whole lot with lots of PVA.

It took ages to dry but once it was, it set really hard and she has now taken it off to Uni with her!

I thought I could alter anything but I think you beat me hands down for altering anything that doesn't move fast enough!!! Fabulous! JulieD
