BIY Mercyful Fate - Melissa backpatch

CryptKeeperMon, 20/02/2012 - 16:25

I had some time on my hands, so I decided to make a Mercyful Fate backpatch. I decided for the Melissa artwork because it consists of only a few single-colored areas without much detailed structure. And this is how I made it:

- First I copied the main lines of the Artwork onto a A3 paper.

- Then I copied these lines onto a black cloth and cut out the non-back parts.

- I cut out pieces of colored cloth and ironed them onto a black piece of cloth using cloth-glue that is ironed onto one piece of cloth, and then one remnoves a protective film and irons another piece of cloth onto the first.

- Now I ironed the front cloth onto the cloth with the colored patches, ending up with a layered cloth of two black cloths with the colored cloths in between.

- Then I added a few small pieces of cloth for the horn.

- Finally, I hand-sewed along all borders, of course the most time-consuming step but I like sewing. ^^

- In the end, I sewed along the borders of the backpatch with the sewing machine.

That's it! It turned out close-to-perfect. The only thing not perfect is that I used denim cloth for the blue areas, and this cloth is thicker than the red and yellow cloths, so that the border between the blue and red clotht is visible if one looks closely.
