After an extremely frustrating session of fumbling, mistakes, and general brainlessness, I finally made some progress on my massive fannish project today. I might have the beadwork done in time to baste this sucker onto the back of my denim jacket to wear to the opening next Friday.
The gaps are where I need some partial rows to make up for irregularities in bead sizes. If it looks a little, um, oblongish, it is. *mutters imprecations at unreliable beadwork software*
I may have to do some fast faking with the remaining pattern to minimize the effect.
The Serenity Coat, however, is going to take me till the London convention (mid-November) to finish. It has morphed in concept from Mal to Inara--from brown leather to silk and velvet.
If you look closely, you can make out the beadwork hidden in there.
So. What do you think so far?
