|3D printed cherry blossom collar|
|Tidal Basin cherry blossoms|
3D printing a test flower. I used Tinkercad to make the flower model based on some other sakura models I found on the internet.
Printing directly onto the fabric using the "sandwich" method with a few layers printed below the fabric and the rest printed above.
Here's a video of the 3D printer doing its thing.
I used this simplicity pattern for the collar. I agree with online reviews, the L isn't really very large, its about 14-14.5 inches. Given how simple the pattern pieces are they should extend the sizes. The overall pattern was simple to sew and finish.
Here's the finished print. It took about 2 hours, one hour for each side. The overhanging petals didn't print as nicely as the rest of the model but a little sanding finished them up.
I decided to go with a burgundy as the backing color.
