marvel - purple barton

Hurrah!

Have I mentioned that my apartment has the worst lighting in the entire world? I shit you not. Only the kitchen and the bathroom have any overhead lighting whatsoever. In the winter, it is like living in a basement, despite the fact that two of the walls are enormous sliding glass doors.

All that is to say that these pictures are a little jacked up. BUT ANYWAY. Collapse )
marvel - purple barton

Tutorial: Make your own team plush dolls!

Preliminaries: This project took about seven to ten hours and cost about 8USD (would've been more, but I already had all the ribbon and thread). I only used two stitches for this project: Backstitch and a modified whipstitch (which I think is really more like an overcast stitch, but the difference seems academic to me). For my purposes, I'm going to assume you already know how to sew basic stitches, or that you can look it up on the internets. But fear not; felt is an incredibly forgiving fabric. There are a lot of steps, but this project is a cakewalk.

This post is image heavy; you may want to click here to view it in format=light. Again, horrible lighting in my house = blurry pictures. And I was drinking wine for a lot of this project didn't plan ahead, so there are like ten hojillion pictures of making pants and none of the hair or shirt making.
