2  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Batik Hemp Stole for wedding officiant on: September 01, 2007 03:32:42 PM
the pics came out a bit dark- so you cant see the om or pentacle symbol too well- but I did this for a friend who is the officiant in a wedding.
I lined it in satin, and the top is made of hemp rayon.

those are doves at the top- they came out dark too.

I made this for a custom order who wanted certain chinese symbols- with harmony big and bold in the center Smiley all the symbols are appliques

this is before i did more quilting on it- so its a bit preliminary. the photo never came out right. the grey fabric is a min floral print in black and white Smiley

thank you inventor of freezer paper- without you- this quilt would have driven me crazy Smiley
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / can corsets be made for very large sizes (5x?) on: January 19, 2007 08:29:54 AM
I'm going to attempt this today-
using the hemp cord boning method of putting in the channels all the way around.....

if anyones got experience making corsets in a 5x size- id love to hear it from you- what basic pattern to use-any tips...etc.

this is going to be used as an undergarment for a very simple period empire waist dress in a wedding. (she's a bridesmaid)
