    front and back pannel for harper's shell complete.

    also pinned it all esperimentally together and would you look at that, my measurements are correct!! so tomorrow I'm hoping to finish the sides and then i can hopefully put it all together over the next few days.

    alright lads, lasses, lenbies

    I have finished the harper shell yesterday (so chonky!!) and i already cut all the starmap bits today, which means i can get going on sewing at least some of the smaller parts together today!

    Progress is inevitable

    Next up: Intrepeid shell, though potentially after my visit to my fambly for birthmas. I love my mum but boy howdy do i not need her sewing advice, even if it comes from the very well-meaning place of 'has been sewing anything from plushies to curtains to dance customes and doll clothes as far back as i can remember'

    This is my project and i wanna do it myself, my way.

    starmap progress:

    back panel put together, eye put together

    plan for tomorrow: put together the front panel, then give it all an experimental pin to see if my measurements work out
    plan for monday: embroidering back and front panel Many.

    only need to put down one more ribbon and then the starmap shell is done and I can start cutting the parts for the Intrepid shell.

    which while i will cut them tomorrow, i won't actually start it until i'm back from my parents.

    I know i said I wouldn't start the intrepid shell for reals until I was back from my parents

    But guess what I just did.

    On the plus side, I worked out a construction problem I had.

    also took some artistic license with the dimension of the eye (the part i scale everything else to) because otherwise it would have been too tiny to sensibly work out. But it still looks cute and game models don't have to adher to fabric physics, so.
