thank you
my mom makes things for animals, and had left over red, dark red, yellow, green, white, purple and a few other colors of fabric, that she never used of leftovers
so, i took them of course! i have almost enough red to make her fire nation dress, and i have enough yellow and red to make the scarve things, which ive already cut out
um, where would i get the seal stuff? that sounds much more handy then just sewing it on, although it seems ill have to sew on after it :3
ah well
if u even read this comment...
ive just gotten bored, and thought it would be a fun project. besides, i missed otakon this year, and hope to go next year!
im still working on my RWBY Scythe, gosh it takes forever out of cardboard, and ive never made costumes/cosplays before, maybe ill post pics
lol, so i hope im doing well, the scythe is made out of cardboard, but ive made it like 4 layyers thick, plus some other tings to keep it together, and wrapped it in duct tape :D
DUCT  TAPE IS MY FRIEND!!! >-<
all ive ver really made iss swords, out of cardboard. lol, i like cardboard, and sewing!

no problem!
you can get heat n bond at joanns. you should still applique the edges though as the fabric can still fray and/or come off.

Hey, what exactly is the suiting fabric you have used? I just want to make sure I'm looking for the right stuff :)

I don't know the exact name of it, but it's from Joanns in the suiting section and I think they carry it all year

Thank you, I'll have to look for it :) I'm trying to make her Earth bending bracelets from this design, taking the wrist piece to be green instead of leather. I've found everything I need for it, except for the suiting material haha :D

Oh OK, in that case for her green outfit I used a linen which I believe they also have in stock all year. It's a great green too and a nice fabric although it wrinkles easy. But it's easy to work with

Sorry for spamming you with questions. Do you know exactly what that green linen was called? I can't seem to find it (or I'm just being me, as usual haha)

I think I found something I can use. It's a light green cotton/linen blend :) (I'm starting to think this would've been easier if I had gone for red lmao)

Thanks a bunch for your help XD If I can pull this off I'll cite your tutorial!
