Disclaimer: I consider myself an amateur costume/props maker and keep looking at new ways to make things and expand my current knowledge. There are probably lots of ways of making these things, and there are lots of tutorial videos on youtube and walkthroughs on the internet. If in doubt, take a look and practise on a bit of scrap cloth if you’re unsure of a stitch. Also, my names for stitches might not be the “correct ones”, so if my jargon’s a bit off – sorry!
