LOL...I had no idea what a pastie was, until the very last pic!!... Smiley

If your username is indicative of you actually being in the UK, perhaps there's a different name for them over there...?

DIY Pasties Tutorial
You will need:
1 Sheet of Felt
3 yds of sequins
hot glue gun
hot glue
scissors
a sharpie
something to trace (parmesan cheese can works nicely)
On felt, trace the traceable item twice.  With scissors, cut the circles out.
Cut a small wedge out of one circle being sure that it touches the center point of the circle.  The larger the wedge the pointier your pastie will be.
Take wedge and trace it onto the second circle (symmetry!).  Then cut the wedge out of second circle.
With hot glue gun, run a line of glue down  the edge of the cut-out-wedge.  Overlap the other side of the cut-out-wedge-space and hold until the glue sets.
Beginning at the tip of your pastie cone, glue sequins.
Continue to wrap sequins around the pastie cone in a spiral.
...
When all of the felt is covered, cut sequins leaving about an inch long tail.
Overturn your pastie cone and glue the tail under here.
Make 2!  Adhere with either eyelash glue or spirit gum and shake your tatas.

It's been almost a year and no responses.  How sad.  Embarrassed

I just got a loom today.  On long term loan out of an acquaintance's barn.  I don't know anything about it and it appears to be missing parts.  The adventure begins!

I did use bag fiber to sew the seams.  I didn't leave that much seam allowance because I sewed the panels right to the umbrella ribs.  In fabric it would be a different process.  Fabric also wouldn't stretch as much as the bag panels do.  I found that when I actually attempted to leave a seam allowance the panels sagged so I had to make the last two too small so that it would pull the rest of the frame taught and there wouldn't be any visibile droop.  I'm a slut for technique...when you're a craftsperson you have to be more concerned with technique than with product.  If the technique isn't there the product will suck.  Ask away.

I cut the fabric part off of the umbrella and then used one of the wedges to pattern the sections on.  I should have written it down but every weight of plastic produces slightly different results so I just came up with a general theory and carried the fabric wedge around with me wherever I was knitting so I had something to compare to.

It would be an interesting intervention....to walk around and interact with people and talk about art and the economy.  I need to figure out how to display it when it's not on a person...it's going to be in a fashion show in October but I'd like to display it conventionally...and it might be hard unless I can come up with a mannequin.  Even then I think a mannequin would distract from the art.  It's something I'll have to consider.

Yeah, someone else suggested a use as a parasol.  One day you might fins me walking down the streets of Burlington, Vermont under the shade of my grocery bags.  Grin
