Cheshire's Tail from Pandora Hearts
Hey guys! Well I was looking through my tutorial drafts and I found this one that didn't have anything typed up except the title. So I've decided to create this tutorial and give it to you, the public. :) So there's my speel, now onto the tutorial!! XD
STEP 1: Reference Picture!! XD
STEP 2: Gathering Materials:
STEP 3: Measure however long you want your tail to be then subtract about four inches. This will be the measurement for your black fabric. The four inches that you subtracted is the measurement for the white fabric. Next make a pattern. The black should start at being 2-2 1/2 inches wide then taper down to about one inch at the end. The white fabric should be one inch wide and one side needs to be rounded. This side will be used as the end of the tail.
STEP 4: Cut out the patterns. You should have two white pieces and two black pieces. Sew the white pieces to the black pieces so that you have two 2D copies of the tail. Then sew the to tails together then flip it inside out. Stuff the newly sewn tail with the cotton balls/batting.
STEP 5: When your tail is stuffed, tuck the ends in at the wide end of your tail and sew them together. Heat up the hot glue gun and glue the hook-y part of the Velcro to the tail and the fuzzy part to the pants. You can also sew the Velcro, I recommend that you use a sewing machine for that. ;)
STEP 6: If you have your pants already, then you can put the Velcro on. Before you do that, you'll want to make sure to figure out where you want to put it so that your tail is nice and centered or it'll look funny. >~< Once you have that figured out sew/hot glue the fuzzy part of the Velcro to that spot.
And there you go! A beautiful Cheshire tail just for you! :D Thanx for reading this tutorial. I will see if I can get a tutorial vid up soon. I can't guarantee when though. ^^;
