MY FUR ORDERS CAME IN YAAAAAAAAAAAY NOW I CAN START SEWING MY FURSUIT.

Also, after a ton of pattern and sewing-related errors and having to rip a lot of seams, I finally finished Sediea's hat and have a set of working templates I can use for future hats.

So, here it is:



Yes, the photo is failtastic. >.> I don't have a mannequin head, so I just shoved some crumpled-up paper in there and propped it up. I'll try to work out a better way of getting pictures soon...and a better location than my bathroom.

So, how'd I make it? I cut some fleece into four sections that tapered off at the tip, fumbled around with an ear pattern before finally settling on something that kinda works (it's in a similar shape to the four sections,) then sewed those together. Then I cut out a four-inch wide brim (about 23 inches long, which is about [personal profile] sediea 's head circumference, sewed that together at the end, folded it in half, then stitched it to the rest of the hat.

Everything on this hat is blanket-stitched, which will hopefully make it pretty sturdy. I think my blanket stitch has vastly improved since I started this! It didn't turn out as well as I hoped, but it still ended up something like I planned it to be.

I still enjoyed doing this a lot, and I hope to make more of them. ^_^ I will be taking commissions once I feel I'm good enough, but for now they're closed to friends. [personal profile] feathertail has requested one, and I'll be working on that next along with my fursuit and my story commissions (which are started, believe it or not!) I will probably update with those this week.

So, I think things are going in a good direction. ;) Until then!
