Uchiwa?

Hello everyone! I don't even know if I'm allowed to ask here, but~

I've been really thinking that I want to make an uchiwa lately, but I have no idea how to go about it. I mean, I've got the basic idea and I could probably slap a few things together and have it resemble an uchiwa but that's not what I want at all.

Would any of you be willing to share your trials and tribulations with me on your attempts at making an uchiwa? For example, what have you used for the basic fan shape/handle? I've searched and searched on google and found people using things like popsicle sticks, but that's not pleasing to the eye at all. e_e

Please, any help would be greatly appreciated! :D
