It took me about a day to draw up and cut out my 12 appliques for Flonne - and they were just + shapes! What costume are you doing?

I took most of the day yesterday cutting and pasting the shapes I needed, and then today replicating the rest that I needed. I took most time trying to fit all of them into a would-be heat'n bond roll to see which would be most space saving.

And then I starting folding and cutting my appliqués. They're leafy shaped wibbly wobby ones that have a lot of curves and inverted pointy corners.
I'm doing a yukata-gijinka of Shaymin. Man the green I got is SO GREEN.

I have to go get some heat'n bond on Monday. :B

...did you cut out the fabric before you attached the heat and bond, or did you just lay the designs out in advance?

I'm lying the design patterns out on a piece of fabric first to see how they could fit into a metre roll, but no, I haven't bought the heat'n bond yet. Razz
But I have cut out 4 of the designs. I think I should stop now. (Two of them are really big, so I shouldn't have that much trouble putting them onto the heat'n bond. Oh well. I'll work around it - baking paper as a mess stopper, FTW!).

Don't cut out anymore! D: Having done similar before, it is a REAL PAIN to put something like heat and bond onto the fabric - you forget that fabric (even non-stretch) stretches and warps on the bias, so the iron will morph the shape of the design as you move it over the design to transfer the heat and bond. >.<

^You and me both.

I have almost all the fabric I need for the Caterpillar, just hanging out for some nice midweight tartan for the pants...I found so much green fabric while riffling through old boxes...but now I must figure out what goes where. Might swing by Asia Gallery and get some old pieces of Kimono fabric, for that tattered aesthetic.

In other news! Agatha is almost finished-I just totally forgot that I didn't have a zip for the skirt. Old School Shirt has been altered for the same purpose, and Mum has graciously provided me with a nice strong tube(in recompense for the one she threw out)for the base of my ultimate prop.

^Asia Gallery? What is this? 8D

Will probably go back to Arthur Toye and buy some more fabric >__> For my DO cosplay in case I can go. I mean, it'll only be $3 or $4/m. Why not? XD

Asia gallery is the best kept secret ever. It is a tiny import store, tucked away in an alleyway in Kilbirnie, and when I lived in Lyall bay, just a few minutes away, it was my favourite place ever. It's not run by the same really nice guy it was when I was thirteen, but it still has an amazing range of asian, primarilly japanese antiques. And a huge range of Kimono. Huge. I mean, huge. At one point, this time last year, they had a whole extra room , with this epicly huge pile of Kimono in the middle of the floor-which me and mum spent about an hour sorting through.

Did I mention most of the Kimono are less than $30?

I also need to go back to Arthur toyes...no enough lining...

OKAY. I WILL TAKE YOU THERE.

AND THEN YOU CAN TAKE YOUR MOTHER THERE AND FORCE HER TO BUY YOU STUFF.


But their customer service since the rather mean Japanes lady started working there has gone downhill.

Also, something I didn't mention-a wall of Obi. Wall. I'm not even kidding.
