I actually used the bottom of an old black tshirt - I started by gluing it at the top with the finished edge pointing up, then I wrapped it around, covering the raw cut edge with each wrap, until finally at the bottom I folded the raw edge in and glued it tight. It looks pretty cool I think!!!
O_o... Wow... That's actually an easy solution. XD Here I've been wracking my brain, trying to figure out a good handle grip. It went from craft foam, to leather, then peeling an actual grip off a dagger. Thanks!
LOL! Sounds like how my usual thought process goes. Then I'll be sitting at work and all of a sudden I'm like "WAIT this is easy, why didn't I think of this earlier?" I try to think about things for at least a week before I actually make them XD
