441  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Medieval/Renaissance Swap - limited to 12 members - signups July 7 - 14 on: July 07, 2005 08:30:30 AM
Thanks for letting us tag team, Writer78!  Since we will be a charity case, let me sing our praises  Smiley

I am sure there are many more to add, but I know my friend's historical crafts include:  inkle weaving, knitting, spinning, embroidery (blackwork), sewing, and making floss covered buttons.  My historical craftiwork overlaps some of hers:  inkle weaving, knitting, embroidery (blackwork) sewing, woodburning, bookbinding, soap making, and making lucet cord.  I can also bone up on the following if anyone is interested in:  calligraphy, tablet/card weaving, and silk painting.

If I am lucky and my ithra class is not cancelled, I can add shibori to my list this weekend <keeping fingers crossed>

Please volunteer to be our partner...we will make it worth your while <wink>

I'm signed up!  I can't wait to get medieval on my crafts!


Before this swap got going, Writer78 and I did a mini-swap just between us.  Here is what we sent...

She sent me two embroidered favors, ren faire pin-back style.  The axe favor is for my hubby, and the bird favor is for me to wear with my costume.  She also sent a fabulous box with costumed people decoupaged on it, and fun little medieval army men!


I sent her a SCA belt style favor embroidered with blackwork, and about seven yards of inkle trim.  I forgot to take a picture of the trim before I sent it.

Very nice case!  It makes me want to dress up my dart case.  If I do that, maybe I will play darts more often!  Nice hummingbird tattoo, also.  I love that style of animal design.

Count me in!  I am always up for making more ancient crafty stuff.

... do you think you could do it with fabric?  I'm talking about a lightweight cotton fabric, like for quilting.

You bet!  Just go easy on the glue, or it will soak through the fabric.  You could use a spray adhesive, too.  I have used quilting fabric and white glue to cover cardboard boxes in the past.

I know I'm pretty much talking my myself in this thread....

Hey, I will talk to you about this  Grin  I am not familiar with your pin idea for a favor, but I have seen the belt favors at SCA events.  Not that I have made any myself yet, so this might be good practice for me.  I would be glad to trade with you, and hopefully we can generate enough interest for a swap with several others.

The favors I have seen are roughly 3 1/2" x 8" and have a loop through which a belt is threaded.  Many are embroidered, cross stitched, or appliqued.  This is rather the most common I have noticed, but anything goes as far as a token symbolizing the giver's affinity to the recipient.

Favor links for anyone who does not know what we are talking about.  Unfortunately out of 10 googled pages, none have pictures <ugh!>, so these links have descriptions of how they may be made and why they are given.

Yay!  I got back from camping this weekend, and my box from Messily was here!  She made me six awesome Star Wars markers with Darth Vadar, Boba Fett, and other characters, plus six markers with stars.  AND there was a star destroyer pez dispenser and a big ol' plastic cupcake to hold all the markers.  Thanks so much, Messily!

Cool!  I am so glad you like them The Meow Won't Purr!  So what the heck are you going to do with all of them?  That's a ton of knitting!  I love your idea of using them as car mirror fobs.  I might make some more for car sparklies for me!  I took a pride picture of the markers before I sent them, and I hope you don't mind my posting another pic of them.  Yes, the sparkly bag is just a piece of ribbon folded over and blanket stitched, and the black bag is from the instructional link in velveau's post on a Japanese drawstring bag:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=36288.0

Those earrings are great!  I love the non-linear designs and the bumby beads.  I have just learned to do some wirework.  Are you using silver wire?  Right now I am just using copper wire for practice.
