I know how to sew and stitch enough to put things back together. I've made smaller projects in the past but nothing that I've ever really completed. I've made things like dog beds. What I'm trying to do here is turn a simple black jacket into something Eve inspired kinda from the character creator.
My lovely mother is the model.
I got fabric, thread, needles, fabric tape, felt, buckles, and I ordered a jacket. My first jacket was a lovely chocolate colored hoody that came and didn't fit. That means some of my other fabric choices didn't work because I was doing a brown/black/burgundy theme. Now I've switched to a burgundy and black theme. I have to go back to the store and return some stuff and get another type to work on my project.
Draw and cut it out. Then i cut out a square of my red fabric and put them on that. Figuring out how to overlap and over lay it has been a bitch. Neat corners are not working out for me in actuality as much as I'd like. I decided to use a heavy stitch on this because it was a big more corse. The red is darker then it looks in the flash.
This is what I got done over night. My hands are sore from pushing the needle through all the material and I have a bit of a bend/fluffy area to the logo. Sigh. Oh well, it won't be perfect :P
The color is more true to life here. Qwinn is visiting and making sure to shed the proper amount of cat hair onto it. I stole the ottoman that normally holds their heated bed so there is a bit of confusion at my effort to use a piece of furniture.
Not perfect but recognizable. I'm going off to the store to return some stuff and get some others. I dunno what to do about the puff in the logo or how much I care. about restitching. We shall see how my hands feel by tomorrow evening. Now to start adding trim and buckles and see what I wind up with.
