So an update on the stuffed animal. As i said before this one was by far just a dry run. I have learned a lot on how to improve the next version.
First, i now know i could really use a sewing machine. It just makes it all so much faster. I also now know i suck at embroidery so for this guy anyway, i will need to use an embroidery machine. Which i have access to, once it's out of the repair shop. So until then, they will all be some kind of strange blind rabbit samurai thingies. Looks awesome in my head, we will see how it looks in plush form.
Another thing i really need is some kind of fabric pen. One of those ones where the ink fades to nothing after a couple days. For now i have been using a sharpie black marker and it's not exactly a good choice.
Next up, after i finish trying to make this face scar look good (gotta have some kind of reason for the blindness) i need to figure out, of the black cloth i bought which one will be used for his sword sheaths and which one will be used for his kimono. I will post pictures of them both if i can get good ones. But one is a satin like fabric, nice and shiny on one side but a dull black on the other, fraying will be an issue there. The other is this weird really short fur like material. I got it at Walmart so of course they had no idea what it actually was.
Fabric picture: I know the quality is terrible but you can sorta see what it looks like at least. Notice the semi wave effect on the fur stuff (right side.)
