So i want to make a chain out of material rather then buy a metal one. reasons for this:
1. it's lighter
2. it's warmer
3. its cheaper
4. its for a costume
Does anyone have any idea how to make it? i dont want to use fimo/cupley/clay because that is expensive, heavy and could break. it has to last a day and be durable.
Take strips of fabric, fold in half lengthways; stitch around, leaving 1 short side open then turn out. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat....
Take one, make into a ring shape and stitch ends together.
Link the next strip and stitch ends together. Repeat. Repeat.....
Think paper chains.
that's gonna be small lol
i was thinking like paper chains, im hoping it will hold.
still following the paper chain theme but using wool - plait or braid peices and make into loops, knot and repeat.
"that's gonna be small lol"
I didn't say what size!!!
I shall experiment and see. i may make them and spray them silver
You could try metallic material, thus avoiding the extra work of spraying them
That's a good point, it may depend on the cost, I can buy a can of spray paint for less then 1m of fabric.
If you use ordinary spray paint on fabric it'll crack.
Which COULD look good in an old & battered kinda way
