Today I show you how to sew a wide braid. Most cosplayers have the problem that our character has a pattern, a braid or similar to his clothes that are simply not exist to buy.
With this little tutorial you have one of many ways to solve this problem completeley.

Today my costume is from Sakizou of the artbook "Romantic jewels - Gentleman"
Character: Prince Emerauld

Have a look what the braid looks like.

How to work step by step:

STEP 1



What materials do you need:

fabric (here I use cotton)
Interfacing
Bias tape
metallic- / decorative thread
Fabric Paints (gold, copper and olive green)
paper pattern (make some copies from your original!!)
Scissors, pencils and Co.


STEP 2



The first step is the same as in the appliqué tutorial.
Irons interfacing onto the back of your fabric.
It shouldn't come off.


STEP 3



Draw the number of stripes on the back of the fabric you need. Use a pencil, biro or something else.

Done? Paint the colour on it next.


STEP 4



Now cut and draw the copy of your pattern.
(NEVER cut the original!)

You can also draw the pattern before the gold paint.


STEP 5



IMPORTANT: Before you sew, paint and begin the pattern - first makes a test!

STEP 6



The test was a success?
Then you can start stitch the frame for example with zigzag (see appliqué tutorial)


STEP 7



If you have sewn everything you want to sew, it is time for a little paint.
With Brush and fabric color paint all remaining surfaces and patterns.


STEP 8



For fast work uses a system. Much like on an assembly line.

STEP 9



As long as the border dries, you can start with the bias tape.
I prefer to paint bias tape in the color I need.
So I have the same shade as the rest of the border or have the color I need.


STEP 10



The paint on the border and on the bias tape is dry?
Then you have to combine it yet * _ *

Feel free to use the decorative / metallic thread.


STEP 11



And so it looks finished.
Congratulations - you made your own border

Ja so ne Borte zu bekommen ist halt echt schwer XD Also selber machen, auch wenn es welche gab, die recht nahe rankamen. Aber nicht perfekt ;^;

Einfacher als man es denkt, aber sicher sau aufwendig. :0
Respekt, ich denke ich werde das mal ausprobieren sobald ich sicherer bin mit dem Nähen.
Mal 'ne kleine Frage, welche Nähmaschine hast du? :3

Ich habe mal gehört, dass die sehr zickig sein sollen, aber das ist ja bekanntlich von Person zu Person verschieden. ^^
Derzeit bin ich mit meiner Janome Magnolia 7318 sehr zufrieden. :3
