31st January 2013: Playing with fabric paints Have now bought white fabric for the windows, and some fairly heavyweight black ribbon to make a choker. Fabric paints, stencils and poppers for the choker arrived this morning.
So far have measured against dress using paper to make templates for the fabric, and check the sizes for the windows and sign (including using the stencils to check word placements for the sign on the door), cut out the fabric from those templates, and stencilled most of the Police Box text onto the ribbon.
The stencilling with fabric paints is taking longer than expected, as I have to wait for one letter to dry before I do the next, or it is likely to smudge.
Plan for tomorrow: Hem the window and sign pieces, finish choker stencilling (if not done tonight) and add poppers to attach round neck, and start stencilling on the sign using template created today, and centre of the fabric as a guideline.
