here are the pics so far. its getting dark so i wont take any more but im on to adding the greenery.
good thing my
first i made this wire thing. its meant to be a clay pot.
so here it is just the wire
then i covered it in fiber fill, but i forgot to add the top part.. you'll see...
so here it is covered, with the top part:
materials are wire, chicken wire, cutting tool, flat nose, fiber fill, needle thread and masking tape
then i added the top part, the actual plant part with the wire (19 guage)
woops edit! it was too tall haha so i made it shorter.
then i added these fake plastic branchy things
here im sewing leaves and i made these pompom buds out of some fancy yarn
this is kinda what i was thinking it would look like. im going to make a lot more leaves and i hope it looks realistic lol
kinda funny, right?
ill update again tomorrow, i plan on on finishing the pot part.
ok so i redid the whole thing, well the plant part. i wasnt too sure and then, my revolutionary boy said it looked like outdoor, mexican brick weed lol
so i bought a different yarn color and ditched the mini tree cos everyone knows marijuana plants dont have little leaves like that, and i just i made a huuuge bud.
i redid the leaves too. the fabric is this super fray crap ribbon, so i folded it in two and sewed finer leaves, no zig zag, and also fray stopped it. what a pain, better to get better fabric, but this ribbon was a great colour and it had a nice sheen like trichromes
these are the new leaves
so that was before i glued everything together
and here is it finished, the protoype and i can make another from the materials i still have.
i need to make patterns is what i learned. duh. i shouldve known better, also i didnt strengthen it as much as the first plant exploration, so i need to reinforce it as canna therapeutic requested it be strong enough to withstand strong winds!
pic of me wearing tomorrow its too dark now the ones i have are no good ;D
