Meet my new Project Runway model, Cara.  More about her later.

I recently found out about a challenge that mimics the Project Runway TV show except that the models are a bit smaller than the television show models.  The challenges are similar each week, using our miniature models.  I'm not sure if I'll have the time for this or not, but I signed up anyway and promptly hired my model.

As you can see, Cara was a swimsuit model and being the end of the season, she was looking for work.  Her contract price was affordable, even for me, so we have agreed to take on this challenge together, whenever time allows.

The challenge this week was to make a garment out of what the contestants were wearing....for this challenge, it was their bed clothes, and a single top sheet from their beds.  For our copy challenge, we are to make something from whatever our model was wearing, or we could use a piece of fabric resembling PJ fabric.  In addition to this outfit or PJ fabric, we may use a 10 x 10 piece of white cotton/cotton blend to duplicate a mini bed sheet.  The completed projects are posted next Friday when we also receive our next challenge requirements.

I had never seen Project Runway because I don't have cable TV.  However, I'm able to watch it online and watched the first episode last Friday and I'll be able to keep up do date by watching the program the day after it airs.  Should not create a problem. 

If you'd like to play along, check out the Project Runway Challenge and sign up.  You can find out more of the specific details for the challenges.  It will be fun to see what the other "contestants" create each week!


  1. Love Cara's story! And her hair!!! I'm afraid that when my model takes her ponytail out she is going to have a bald patch :/

  2. Are hats "in" this year?! Cara may have nice hair, but I fear that she might not be wearing very nice clothes! Maybe her looks will carry her through!
