Instead of following directions, I’m assembling red dragon my way. Sorry, sewing is not meant to be done with body parts after the thing is stuffed!
So this time, I have sewn pieces together, then added the body parts to the flat pieces (the above is deflated, if you look closely–the main body is not stuffed). The feet & arms are stuffed because I can’t seem to seam them unless I have a better idea of the final shape.
Still needs a tail tip, wings, ears–maybe, horn, and a face stitched on.
Dress project stalled by uncooperative secondhand Singer machine. Am using battery-operated mini Rex Sew. Except I was naughty and impatient and worked on my Harry Potter costume before ol’ Singer balked and wouldn’t tighten any stitches, no matter how I fiddled with the tension bar.
Bobbin casings suck. They always give me the most trouble, catching the top thread and doing stupid stuff. I ran out of black thread because of them.
Am going cheap with HP costume. Printed up a Ravenclaw crest from the internet and have..err…pieces of it on dark shirt iron-on paper (I was trying ot be frugal and use up some left-overs. The ornery Dell printer balked and spit out partials). Some creative cutting and ironing, and I think it should pass.
Also adding a wand pocket for the snazzy wand from my last HP swap. 🙂 (ran across idea while researching HP stuff).
