So, thanks to my thumb still being numb from using the scissors to debone five pairs of jeans, this is all I have to show for today's work. 7 panels of patched denim reclaimed from several jeans, 16 inches long of varying widths for the sleeves of the kimono.

The piles at the left are the other panels of the kimono, the ones that didn't have holes, and thus didn't require patching. The pile at the bottom is all the trimmings that were left over from cutting the other panels into a managable state.

Hopefully, my thumb will NOT be numb tomorrow and I can start working on sewing the panels together for the migoro pieces, and then work on the sodes and okumi. I think the Eri will end up either being made from fashion denim scraps or whatever is left.

Warning y'all, I'm going to have an image heavy post, but the good news is that you guys get to see for the first time how my embroidery work progresses!

A little under two weeks in the making )

I will never cease being delighted at the look and feel of a handembroidered piece of work.

Just doing work in a single color lets me explore all the kinds of textures I can achieve with thread. French knots, bullion knots, back stitches, sachiko, and chains....

Now if I could figure out how to record dozens of nature documentaries to listen/watch while I'm working I think i'd never stop.

Hokay, plz muse, I know you liked doing the random even package for [ profile] wanderlustlover but could you reign in the need to make minishrines for a bit.

...Yes. Lil altar cloths for the minishrines might be a good idea. Except they'd be too expensive for the size and no one would want them.
crazyfurries: (erba?)
Trying to make hakama from internet instructions and not doing so well.

...really debating just finishing up my freakpants and wearing those instead along with the kimono and kosode, instead of the hakama.

Tabi, Sandals, Kosode and Kimono are done.

Obi is all that's left if I give up on the hakama.

I've got a month and a half to scramble to get things together. Paypal is waiting for my darling bank to give the goods for the supplies.

What I need to make between March 5th and now.

Dobuku or Happi Coat: Whichever takes less fabric

Hakama pants

kosode undergarment:length measurements taken. Work will commence after I iron out the fabric flat tomorrow. I've got more than 3 freaking yards of it.
Obi: ...need to dig through my fabric supplies but I think I can do a simple embroider on a sash and wear that.

Tabi: (Might cheat and make fake-ish ones from white gym socks)

Sandals: Have idea involved braided scraps of fabric from projects, something like a braided rug?

Get registered with Couch surfing for possible place to STAY: DONE, now to find someone

Purchase fabric for Hakama and Coat: DONE jesus I need to keep track of Jo Ann's sales because 6 yards for 75 cents a yard for a very light denim which is perfect? =D!! DONE. Kosode is going to be made from some unbleached muslin that I got in a garage sale and washed. Scraps will be used for embroider projects.

Bento business stuff
Design brand 'tags' to be printed on cardstock and stapled to bags of goods

Make 15 simple furoshiki $5(five red, five blue, five green, with white fabric)

Make 5 complex furoshiki $10 (use vintage cloth with red, blue, green and 2 white)

Make 3 pumpkin bag furoshiki ($30, basically windfall item)

Either find an old tall wicker wastebasket or see if there's someone who can build a simple wooden backpack of sorts. Otherwise I'll just have to pack and stash a large amount of stock in the car and carry small amounts through the con each day in the wicker picnic basket.

Right, seeing as lugging around Ion in my backpack is scratching up the case of the sweet lil thang I realize I might just have the materials at home to make my own laptop case.

I figure the math is like this for making it (your mileage and materials may vary), and since I cart around art stuff all the time, making certain I have space for those will be a priority as well.

I figure that my bristol board pad will be a good size to work from so!

the width of the pad + 2 inches x 7 + 6 inches again.

It should work out like this. / or \ = width of pad +2 inches, _=3 inches ((X+2)x7)+6 = Z, Z x Y=total size needed.


the above would be how it would be folded/laid out with the main body.

External dvd drive pocket would be the dvd drives size (X+1 in) x (Y+1 in) the same formula for making a pocket for the wireless mouse and the ac adapter main patch with an additional formula (X+1 in) x((y/2)+1 in) for the button flap.*

This shouldn't take too long, and I think I'll do this using the quilting method for lining and padding. For those not of sewing background, the quilting method is when you place your fabric good sides (Read as: the parts you want the outside world to see) together, with the insulated or padding on top, then sew together and turn inside out.

I figure I'll need side padding for the 3 in sides, which'll be a simple X+2 by 3 inches, same method for the main body. Not sure on the top handle, definitely going to pick up some safety buckles if they have them at Jo Ann's.

*...Holy crap, I used algebra to design my own laptop case. Quick someone help me calculate the geek cred points one gets for this!

I've been talking about this in IM's for a while now and this week I finally got photos!

And the reason it's maroon is that the suit is made from all the old t-shirt uniforms I had to wear during the second run of my janitorial job at Kohler.

Recently I've come to inherit pair of old (we're talking at least half a century old on the youngest one) sewing machines.

They are encouraging me to buy myself a NEW sewing machine, perferably one that has more than one stitch setting.

In the meantime, I'm reading the manual and looking at the attachments.

As of right now? the Ruffler attachment is looking DAMN interesting.
