Nurse?
« on: July 05, 2008, 09:57:15 PM »
Hi All,
       My friend has just qualified as a nurse and I would love to make her a balloon nurse - has anyone got any pics/instructions of a nurse that I could copy?

Thanks in advance!

There are some on balloonhq but you have to be a member to view.
What about changing this lootle man into a nurse by weaving either a white dress
or having the bottom of the dress as the posh flower weave with a white top?
& then just puttingb a red cross on hat or part of dress.

Here's one from Balloon HQ to give you an idea.

Sorry Graeme I've had to take the picture down for two reasons;
1, Copyright of balloon hq
2, People should join balloon hq to get the benefits of picture archives


Mind you that was the one I thought the best as well.

How about changing this 160 girl into a nurse although she could do with a more feminine nose ;)

This is the nurse that was posted on balloonHQ. I made it up this morning.
The original had 260 arms & the cross on the cap was in red whick looks nicer but I only have black markers.
The original was made for a competition in 1999, not sure who to credit the design too.

Thank you all for your help with this! I made Grahams Nurse a couple of weeks ago after he posted the picture, my attempt wasn't great but I got the idea.

I'm posting some pics of the shrivelled up version and am so sorry I didn't get the pics up sooner - I know how annoying it can be when people ask for help and then don't have the courtesy to share the end result!

Anyway hopefully when I remake it I won't forget to post a better pic than the ones here.

Thanks again for the help everyone!
