Today's post is a do-it yourself post! I'm really kind of excited to share this!
Anyways, I was really bored last night and wanted SO BADLY to do a d.i.y. post for you guys that I was thinking of cute things I wanted in my life! So, I came up with this! I love anime/manga, and I don't have near enough posters in my room as I'd like, nor the money to buy them at the moment, so I wanted something cheap, cute, and would represent my love for anime!
These are what I came up with c:! They're super simple to make and they're also quite a nice addition to a bedroom!! So let's get started!!
Things you're gonna need:
♥ Printer (color is preferred, but black/white would be ok too!)
♥ Internet access
♥ Sewing needles
♥ Cotton balls (or anything soft really)
|When you print 2 copies make sure you invert one! In other words, make the character's face show on each side! When you do, cut it into the shape you desire! I lightly folded the sheets and cut it into a heart!|
|When you start sewing, I'd suggest starting from the bottom and underneath the shape! So you won't see many knots now and the end when you're done!|
|Stitch it however you like! Just be gentle and be patient so you won't rip anything c:|
|When you get around 3/4 done pause your stitching because we need to fill the heart with softness to make it more 3D like! You don't have to do it though! c:|
|After you finish stitching it make a few knots and cut off the excess knot strings c:|
Finally, after your shape is sewn and secured, get a new string and poke it through your needle! Don't knot anything! Just poke it through the top of your shape so it will be able to hang anywhere c:! Then knot it secure!
The final result should be like this!
I hung mine on my ceiling and coincidentally right by my A/C unit so they always flutter lightly and look super pretty and cute! I plan on making TONS more for my ceiling of my favorite characters and one day I'll show off all the ones I've made c: I'm planning on doing manga caps as well!!~
I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did!!! Please have a great night/day lovelies!!
