Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

I hope I can do the handsewing. Last time I tried, my hands hurt so bad I had to quit. But then, I was just trying on my own, without really knowing what I was supposed to do. I'm hoping that with his help, I can learn to do it properly, without the pain. I really want to make these


By the by, what's the copyright with these things??? Would it be ok to sell these, since it appears to be so old?

I don't think there are or ever were copyrights on these??  They are very old & were a craft when my grand & great grandmothers were crafting.  I may be wrong...so someone smack me if I am.

Hope not!  Wink  I sold two to friends since I made the purple one.

I machine-sewed most of mine, 'cept for the closures & where the arm/wedges all come together.  Depends on what size you are making, I suppose.  Cheesy

do you have any little tricks or photos on how you get the 4 corners together?  I mean, I can do it, but mine always take *ages* cos I want to get them just right, and they take forever.

Am I supposed to be pushing one or two triangles inside the others? That's what I've been doing, but I'm not sure if it's right

Hmm... No, don't push them inside one another.

Look at this pic (below).  You'll take two of your triangles (formed from three arms/wedges sew together - you should have for of the triangle sets there, yes?) and sew them together (sit them flat together, don't push them inside each other).

Look at the pic like this... on the left side there is one triangle & on the right there is another.  It's probably kinda hard to see unless you tilt your head & squint (like one of those 3D pictures...tee hee!)

You will need to stitch the wedge circles together so that the points of 4 wedges come together.
