i am terrified and in awe
I thought my own speed on plushie was fast but no. no it's not.
Yeah, that's actually a really common response to my sewing pace. A few years ago when I was learning to do this kind of tunic, I was given about 2.5 days to make it, from cutting fabric to wearable tunic. It was a larping event, and I went to the event specifically to learn how to make this style of tunic. Lady Armstrong, the creator of the tunic pattern and instructor of the class, is a little scared either of me or for me, because I got it done at roughly 2 pm the second day, while fighting a cold and doing a slightly more difficult finishing seam than the rest of the class.
Yeah that's.....yeah. Speedy.
I'm currently clocking in at about 15 hours of handsewing for my current plushie, which is on the lower end of the scale when it comes to difficulty.
Oh, yeah, if I were hand-sewing any part of this project it would add probably a few dozen hours onto it. It's all large pieces and straight lines by machine, though, so I can tear through it in a few days.
Spoiler: Many large pictures
You marvelous fucker, you even decorated it. Good job!
(Cant wait to join my own local larp thing)
Oh dope! What larp are you joining?
I don't know of any yet, lol. Im not even sure my area has any. I'm near Morgantown WV.
My family used to do SCA events in Arizona, i wouldn't mind joining that again as long as the local group is cool.
If you wanted to try Amtgard (the same game I play), it looks like your closest park is Drekkis Myrr in Fairmont. They're a group that started up just this year, and right now it looks like they're doing some online stuff.
here's their facebook page
