FURSUIT TUTORIAL: Sewing Elastic Onto Your Tail by TECHNlCOLOUR FURSUIT TUTORIAL: Sewing Elastic Onto Your Tail by TECHNlCOLOUR
OH YEAH!!
A lot of people have been asking over the months for a tutorial - mainly tutorials that have nothing to do with this, but hey, I thought this might be helpful. It's extremely simple but I just hope to put this out there and help a few people.

I'll post a QnA in the description as I get questions.

Something I may not have mentioned: The looser the elastic is, the bouncier the tail will be. Make sure the elastic lays flat against the tail, but there's still enough leeway to get your belt through there. xD
So the tail won't sag always put the elastic on the top portion of the tail.

Im just curious how do u sew your tails shut? Your pictures you can almost not see a seem at all to me at least! Once you have the tail stuffed how do you go about closing it!

Hmm, perhaps I could make a tutorial for this as well! Basically I sew the entire tail inside out and then leave a hole large enough to stitch it. I then close the rest of it with a ladder stitch and shave the fur. Sometimes the shaver snags the thread though and you need to do it over again, so it's a good idea to be careful xD I love your username by the way, it's very clever.

definatly make a tutorial because that was confusing for me! 
And thank you! im horrible with names so a friend helped me make it. 
Im trying to find a better way to close my tails because all i can think to work good is like sewing a circle peice of felt on the end making the part flat that goes against your butt

do you put the belt on your waist or on your pants belt loops?

I use my pant belt loops, except the one on the very back, it gets tricky because you put the first ring of elastic in, then the loop, then the other loop of elastic

About how long is/was the tail?  It seems about long enough for the fursuit I will be making.  :meow:

Thank you so much for this tutorial, by the way!  It will really help me in the future.  :)
