1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Rennie-ish gown and tunic on: June 18, 2008 12:45:17 PM
whelp my husband and I got elected into office at our regional LARP group (Amtgard for those interested) and we had to have pretties for our stepping up into office.


both of us

and a view of the dress where you can see all the hem.

next time I appliqu crepe back Satin  onto crepe back Satin I'm putting a couple layers of embroidery stabilizer behind the bottom layer... just to keep the bias crinkles under control.

seeing if I'm doing as nice a piece as my husband says I am.


 full front view, he's about four feet tall for a scale reference.



and a closer shot of the "face"

mostly looking for suggestions on improvements as this guy is old and I'm wanting to do another.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Historical surcoat with a twist on: December 06, 2007 09:25:03 AM
My husbands squire has a fondness for things Egyptian so for his latest fighting surcoat I took advantage of that


from the front (the glyphs down the front spell his name, Voltar)


 the side


and the back.

and it's done just in time for our chapter's annual gift exchange.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Japanese Carpenters Bag with a twist on: October 29, 2006 05:19:21 PM


http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=64401&size=big&sort=1&cat=500

Edited for link failure...

this is based off of a traditional Japanese carenters work bag.  But the interfacing in it makes the top two corners to stiff to tie in the "traditional" manner, so I put a strap on it.

It's made from Chinese brocade and lined in a black taffeta.

Opinions? Critique?

I don't have interior shots and this particular bag no longer belongs to me.

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / shipping TO Canada question. on: April 20, 2006 05:40:26 PM
I live in the US (central Texas) and one of my latest swap partner is in Canada.  What is the best (fastest, least expensive and most reliable) way to send something from here to there?

I'm listing toward global priority mail from the US post office.  I just want to know is this the best way for my partner to get her stuff both in a timely manner and not cost either of us an arm and a leg (I keep reading about nightmares in customs...)

Suggestions?
