Sorry this post is actually from 28th May, I didn't have time to write it earlier so now I'm writing it in the middle of the night.
While I was working on Ichito's 'flap' I was actually working on his handguards, tekkou, also.
|Kind of shows his tekkou... and how he likes to threat killing people right and left..|
And then I also found this nice little helpful picture:
|(found in Google)|
|The pattern I ended up using (own measurements)|
|Cut out pieces (they are darker in reality)|
|I wanted to do a seam around the edges for decoration... (sorry dark photo)|
When I tried to continue sewing in 2 centimeter of the sides on one of the tekkous (to strengthen the push-button and to get a better fit) I noticed the sewing machine left those ugly markings again on the surface... ugh. So mom came with the idea to use pattern paper under the leather. It worked perfectly and the paper was easy to rip away afterwards. But. When I was sewing the sewing machine suddenly decided to be an ass and quit. It started sounding weird and gave warning signs and then it made this huge tangled bobbin thread mess that got half-way stuck inside the machine. Great. Needless to say no more sewing after that.. I hope I can continue tomorrow.
That's all, bye!
