How to Make Regency Diadems - Mistress of Disguise. Greetings, gentle readers!

How to Make Regency Diadems - Mistress of Disguise

Are you ready to follow me down the rabbit hole of shiny objects? It's not for the timid - these tiaras bite. I'll let you know now, they're vicious little creatures. My hands are cut, burned, and scratched from creating just a few of these, so if you don't have much experience working with or soldering metal, you may want to try a few smaller projects before you start in on this. That being said, here's a list of supplies you'll need to create your own Regency diadem:1 foot of brass lamp banding - I find mine on eBay and on You'll need to remove the solid banding that edges the inner openwork. Remove the edging for both sides of the banding, so you're left with only the guts. Now you'll want to divide the banding into two sections - one that is 7" long, and one that is 5" long.

With some banding, it's not necessary to snip the filigree in order to make it flexible, but on others you do. Untitled. One of the elements that I've discovered is hardest to come by when making kanzashi are bira bira, or the little metal flutters that dangle under some kanzashi pieces.


I'm an impatient sort of girl, and didn't want to order some from Japan and then have to wait for them to make their way over here, so I decided to hit the hardware store and take a stab at making them myself. Here's what you'll need to do the same: 20 gauge jewelry wire Large (4 - 5mm) jump rings 26 gauge aluminum sheet metal ($5 at the hardware store) Tin snips A ruler or yardstick Needlenose pliers A nail A hammer A pen A pencil Alrighty, let's get started. First, you want to build your frame for the bira bira. Take your jewelry wire and cut off a length of it, about 10" - a foot.

(You can see that my desk has become kanzashi central.) Next, take your pencil and wrap the wire around it a few times. Slide the coiled wire off the pencil and stretch out the coils a bit. Untitled.

Bento Bag ~ Lunch bag sewing tutorial from RebeccaMaeDesigns

The challenge was to choose a kitchen fabric from Spoonflower and make anything kitchen related… I made this fun Bento Bag! I think selecting the fabrics was almost harder than making the bag! Pink Penguin: Tutorial: Lunch Bag. Thank you for encouraging me to write up a tute on this lunch (bento box) bag!

Pink Penguin: Tutorial: Lunch Bag

I really like this bag pattern because this bag, measuring approximately 9"(width) x 7 1/2"(hight w/o handles) x 5 1/2" (depth), can be used not only for bento boxes of any kind but also for carrying little crafty projects like yarn + needles. It has a cover inside that can give nice privacy for whatever in there and the cover can also prevent it from getting dusty in a windy day. It is much sturdier and larger than the fabric basket, so if you found that your fabric basket was too small or too floppy as a gift bag, this might be a good alternative..?!

Or that several Canberra suburbs have been named after early landholders? These are among the insights revealed by a series of maps dating back to the 1800s which have been added to the ACT Government’s mapping service, ACTmapi. ACT Minister for Environment and Heritage Mick Gentleman said the addition of the old maps will allow Canberrans to see what the ACT and surrounding region once looked like with just the click of a mouse. “These maps will be invaluable to anyone with an interest in the history of where they live or a place they know and how it has changed over time,” Mr Gentleman said. “The historic maps have been scanned and processed so you can overlay them onto aerial photography of the ACT as it appears today to get a comparison of land use and tenure. “The maps date back to the 1800s and show the sheer size of land holdings of the time, which often consisted of a number of land portions.” Sadie #6019.

World War One-vintage French sewing patterns for mourning dress During World War One in 1915 in the Edwardian era, Mode Pratique magazine contained a number of articles on Dresses and outfits for Mourning.

Research>Digital Human for Human Centered Design A dressmaking dummy is not a manikin to display dresses. The dummy is a tool to make clothes patterns through draping. Therefore, its bust, waist and hip conform with the dimensions standardized in JIS, and its form is close to that of the human torso. In traditional dressmaking dummies, however, the cross-section shapes of bust, waist and hip, as well as the form between these cross sections are made manually according to experience and artistic sense. Thus, its overall form is different from that of the actual human body. Essential Techniques for Knit Clothing.
