Спасибо! Если они деформируются, ищите проблему с вашей стороны: это что-то в настройках. Есть вариант отмасштабировать в любом граф. редакторе до размера 1:1 и тупо перерисовать с экрана монитора на просвет. Иногда пользуюсь этим методом, когда рисую эскизы на компе.
Is that contact cement glue elastic? If not please search for some Polyurethane based glue that is good for genuine leather. I use "Moment Crystal" glue from Henkel but it's not a worldwide brand so you should search for a similar glue. Transparent glue is the best.
Thank you for your generosity in sharing your patterns. In particular, I am going to try and make 2 pr. of the SD BJD Soom Supergem Steel boots for both my bjds...a 16" minifee (pattern scaled to 60%) and my 18" msd 5star Ji (scaled to 75%) I sure hope I can do it!! Thanks again. Of course, if it works out and I show my finished boots on a doll site, I will certainly credit you and your pattern!
Also, do you have any tips on how to sew the pieces together? I can't see the seams on your picture of the finished boot, and I'm having trouble getting all the pieces to fit when I try sewing them together like I would a plushie.
Well, the best way is to look at the real boots, to learn how they are sewn together, and to do the same. I usually sew genuine leather by hand, because mistakes leave excess holes. You even may glue the pieces first, and then to sew, I also use this method.
Yeah, but I don't have an example of the real boots (aside from your sample picture), so I don't really know what they're supposed to look like. I'm also not quite sure where the heel and toe parts of the upper are supposed to attach to the sole, and I don't want it to be off-center.
These are the things which are hard to explain for me in English. Try "steel boots" in Google and look at the photos. www.google.com.ua/search?q=ste… Also, my tutorials and patterns are intended for people who already have basic understanding on how to sew the pieces of the clothes together, I never had a goal to explain every tiny step a person should take to make the boots, sorry.
