B.A.P jeans jacket making of part 1

Back in March a little idea started growing in my mind, for years I’ve wanted one of those punk jeans/ leather jackets, you know with a million studs, torn in just the right places, full with patches and stuff. I’ve been thinking about making one with a TVXQ theme, but I just couldn’t come up with anything good (I just knew I wanted the Cassiopeia constellation). But then B.A.P came along and all of a sudden I had a hundred ideas of what to do and how to do it! Here are my first sketches of it (I was too lazy to draw the arms lol)
With Matoki on the cover of their second mini album POWER

 Then I had a big problem because I couldn’t find the right kind of jeans jacket I wanted to use… It took me about a month and a half to get my hands on a jacket and a few hundred studs for the back~

Carefully embroidered Matoki (the bunny) on the back and put the studs all over the back. I really wanted 12mm screw-back studs, but had to settle for 9mm with pins, oh well is still looks good so it just has to suffice I suppose. 

A few weeks later I got started on the front, the pockets were kinda in the way but with some patience while embroidering I made them still useable. While I was working with this TS entertainment came out with the names for the matoki bunnies that are paired up with the boys, (I just have to say I love TS for doing this; creating the bunnies, spending extra time on the matoki earthventure comic and such, my fangirl heart is screaming of joy!). 

At the moment I’m working on Youngjae, Yongguk, Jongup and Himchans bunnies. 

Here we have what's going to be Dadamato, Shishimato, Jokomato and Tatsmato. 

Because of work I don't have that much time to sew right now... well I don't really have a deadline for the jacket anyway so there's no rush~
