I'm super happy I got to do a handmade uchiwa!
I had always wanted to do one, but as I couldn't find the materials I couldn't do it... BUT this Sunday I went to an Idol Festival and they were selling them (and helped if needed) so I bought 2 (because I've got so many ideas XD) and I choose the colors. :D
So... here Is how I made it^^
First there's the black uchiwa. (there was white too but I liked black more)
Here are the papers I choose. It's a lot more bright in reality, and even I don'tlike pink very much it looks cute. That yeallow is perfection XD They have glue on the back, so it can be pasted really easily.
Now it was time to make the characters, cut them and make the first idea of how we want the uchiwa. When writing them in the papers it has to be done backwaard.
Then the characters have to get glued to the other color.
I cut the yellow one too. It was a bit over the borders of the uchiwa so I ended up cutting them too.
Finaly pasted the letters to the uchiwa and... DONE.
Well, it's not totally done because I plan to put some more things but not yet... maybe when I find some materials... yeah... this way it's preatty boring....
I'm really sorry about my english 'cause these days I've been doing really bad at it XD
Well and that's all~
