well... I havn't made my own jet, but I'm about to make some shoes for Bulma (like Trunks shoes)
I have NO idear what the fabric is called, since I found it lying around in my fabricbox, but if it helps, I use grossly-fabric.
and then I use this toturial for the bacis:
that's how much I can help you. ^^' I know it wasn't much, but when I'm done with my shoes, and they succed, I can uploade a toturial and link it to you..
My eng is WAY to bad to explain in works what I want to do..
;A; Hope it helped you a bit..
