Hobby di stoffa by Hdc: Porta tisane da viaggio

Dentro possono essere messe quattro bustine della vostra miscela preferita da portare sempre con voi, ma è anche un'idea carina per fare un regalo hand-made. Prima di procedere con i vari passaggi della realizzazione vorrei darvi qualche indicazione sulla scelta delle stoffe. Per questo progetto io ho utilizzato tre stoffe diverse in abbinamento tra loro cercando di avere un bel contrasto di colori. Iniziate dunque con lo scegliere le vostre stoffe e decidere come volete abbinarle. Se guardate l'interno del porta tisane vedete che io ho scelto una stoffa a righine per il fondo, una a pois per la tasca superiore e una gialla tinta unita per quella inferiore.

Il passo successivo consiste nello scegliere la fantasia per la copertina esterna, io ho usato quella che mi piaceva di più ovvero quella a pois. Credetemi questi passaggi sono i più difficili. Dalle stoffe scelte dovete ritagliare dei rettangoli di 13 x 18 cm. Want to make a Game of Thrones style cloak? Here's a guide. Making a Tea Bag Wallet.

Hillbilly Jillies : Dyeing Fabrics Naturally

All you need to be able to do is thread a sewing machine and sew a straight line - you could even do this with handsewing, though it might take a while. The measurements supplied are for a garment which will fit up to a relatively large man (44in chest) but as it's an unfitted garment it will work on people a lot smaller - just shorten the arms. TIP: If you'd like a more personalised fit, measure across your shoulders from one edge to the other, add an inch and use this for the width of your front and back pieces (you might want to check that it is larger than half of your chest measurement +3 inches - otherwise use the larger of the two measurements).

Dagorhir Gear. The Bocksten tunic: Going beyond the T-tunic By Alric of Drentha About the Bocksten-style Tunic This tunic pattern is based on a number of medieval garments that were preserved when their owners wandered into bogs, drowned, and were mummified. These untimely deaths, while rather unfortunate for the people doing the dying, left us with valuable information about how to make simple, comfortable, stylish, historically accurate garb. The Bocksten, Skjoldehamn, and Moselund tunics are all similar to the basic T-tunic that's so common in Dagorhir. Why would you want to make and wear a Bocksten-style tunic? Charles de Blois Pourpoint, a sewing project. The proceeding will be a combination DIY project with a little bit of a review: The arming clothes that we wear beneath our armor forms the foundation necessary for a good fit and comfort of movement.

If neglected, it would be akin to building a beautiful home on naught but the bare earth. However, our arming clothes do often go neglected for none other than the simple fact that they are neither glamorous nor visible when we don our kits. I've been through many iterations of my arming clothes, and I believe I've finally found the solution, as both practical and historic to the best of my knowledge. My period of interest is the late 14th century, the tail end of the transitional period from the maille hauberks of before, to the white harness of Agincourt. The late 14th century pourpoint, or aketon, or gambeson (the language of the Middle Ages is not nearly as precise as our modern sentiments would prefer), was most likely the foundation for the late 14th century harness.

SCA Gambeson Pattern by MedievalCommunity on DeviantArt. Slashing and puffing « Whilja' s Corner. There is a number of different ways to slash your landsknecht/trossfrau decorations, the fastest is to simply cut out the pattern in the fabric. Cut out slashes require a fabric that doesn’t fray to much, it is also probably the most period way of slashing. The modern fabric we have today isn’t as felted always, and sometimes you might want to use a light weight wool, then you have the cut-and-stitch option available. I prefer to cut and stitch, it kind of makes it look neater and also guarantee to prevents the slashes to fray. Draw the pattern of your choice, cut with a pair of scissors or use a scalpel, fold the fabric and stitch it down.

Spray the fabric with water and press it flat with the iron. For smaller slashes that will be folded I just fold the fabric and cut it; Adventures in the SCA- Viking Clothing. I'm making the pants 39" long so there will be more poof and the fabric is 60" side so that will be 30" for each leg (again the poof factor) I'll make the lower leg part longer by at least 1", but he liked the fit around so I will not change that. 2-1-11 Today I'm cutting the fabric and starting the sewing: First the prep: cut out the strip 2" wide fold in half and pull inside out...what a *&^%$# (make 2) I double folded the edges on the lower leggings I double folded the edges for the lower legs and single folded the waist part.

DIY Heat Pack. I had a belly ache the other day and decided a heat pack would be the only rememdy… except we didn’t own one. Cue sad face. So I went hunting for a DIY. There are stacks out there, but this one on The Johnston’s blog was what I referenced before I started.

How to Sew Your Own Pajama Pants. To make sure you get the right size, just make sure you have a pair of pants that fit the intended pajama wearer.
