24th March 2014: Jacket Almost finished! Just needs another coat of fabric paint on the 'crown' on the back and then all I have left is to sew the black ribbon down the sleeves for the stripe. I made paper templates for the front and my dad made the one for the back, traced around it with a tailor's pencil then filled it all in with white fabric paint. Each part has had around 3-4 coats with ironing in between to fix the colour.
Scissor blade is almost finished too, its all been attached together as well as being primed and had a fair few layers of red paint. Will see what it's like in the morning but all being well all it should need now is a clear coat to seal the paint. Exciteeeed~
