Pretty much the first time I did something completely in only one day! (a tote bag for the release).
I used this stencil, a very high resolution version is up for download *searches* here
(I adore the person who made this, by the way)
I cut it out (took me about two-three hours not including the breaks I took to regain feeling in my arm) - you can also see here how I cut the straps of the bag - I'm going to sew the two into one to make it longer, otherwise it didn't fit over my robe sleeve.
Ironed it on to the bag...
Make sure to get all the details...
and a close-up. I don't even think I need to color the bridges, you can hardly notice!
and my robe, made... oh, over two years ago? no, just under two years ago. I was planning on remaking it but time and motivation were both lacking. you can barely notice how I forgot to put the hood on until the entire thing was sewn and therefore have an ugly seam showing... (first ever sewing project, what can I say)
Finally put the frog closure on today :). I don't have a patch, but I ordered one last week and am hoping it gets here in time *crosses fingers* - I already have my tie from when I first made the robe, and the rest of the basic costume (shirt/pants).
Two questions: (1) What else should I put on the bag? if anything (I'm leaning toward nothing or some pins from nancy buttons
)? (& 2) I've never done the midnight release thing, so I'm going (alone :( ) to Borders this time - when should I go? when are you going?
two days! *freaks out* haha...
