building swords, cover?


So Ive got the pattern/instruction sheet from the website downloaded and been watching several videos on weapon building. However the only one I've found that mentions covers (most just use tape covering) is a guy that uses special spandex covers he sells. (or sold, it's quite out of date)
So what do you use for weapon covers and where do you get it?

I haven't tried it out yet, but I've bought all the materials.
I was going to cut up a pillowcase and use this stuff i found called "Stitching Witchery" (@Walmart in teh Crafts section) that is basically an iron-on seam.
I have to wait till tomorrow to start making my equipment though, so I'll let you know how it works out emoticon

The best way to make a cover is to fold a length of fabric over the weapon and sew it up the side. It essentially makes a big sock for the weapon. This tutorial provides a great explanation and a bunch of pictures documenting the process: [sign in to see URL],[sign in to see URL]

Don't use stitch witchery. It wont hold up and you'll be reassembling it as soon as you use the sword.
