Auron's Katana Build by James

This method of adding details to your costume can be very time consuming, but therapeutic at the same time. During this time of social distancing and many hours spent at home... maybe this is the time to try something new and dig into the world of embroidery!
Basic Tools Here are some basic tools to start with. Part Two of the blog posts will cover some of the basic stitches later this week.
