Hi! I'm sewing a sunset shimmer plush right now and am wondering if you have any advice for sewing the mane/tail? I'm having trouble getting nice clean edges where the colours meet and making things look.. flame like. thanks!
I finally thought of a relevant question to ask you! I notice when you do manes you do not applique them together, they look sewn together in the more traditional sense. How do you deal with such complex curves when trying to match the two colors together in that way?
Heheh, with some difficulty and the seam ripper. But it's also dependent on which side of the seam you put your pins. But looking back, I could probably do Spitfire's mane and tail a little quicker than I did before. On the sharp corners though, I have to stop, cut the angled part, then continue to pin and sew the next segment. It's a pain to be sure.
Hi! Just wondering how you did the stripes down her mane/tail, I've done a couple of OCs which had that and the only way I could work out doing it was to use a matching thread and do a satin stitch over the joins, but obviously that leaves a big stitch going down, which looks fine when I do have a matching thread, but there might come a time when I'm not so fortunate. But yours looks so clean and nice, how did you manage that?! Don't tell me you did a ladder stitch all the way down! If you did, that must've killed, and took forever! If that's what you did then.. Wow. That would kill my hands! It looks awesome anyway!
