Finished Fencing Helm

My fencing helm with Chaperon all though I started out with a hood that is rolled for the Chaperon I altered it later to get it to look better. The reason I needed to alter it was because I didn't make the Liripipe on the hood as long as it needed to be to hang out after the hood was rolled. I sewed it to the Mask. My husband thought I should wire it but I would rather the thread brake then the fabric, so I did not.
Here is a link to the Hats history and variations.

Tree of life pendant with seed beads

For a swap I made a tree of life pendant this is only my second attempt at these. I make it much smaller then the first one. it is about the size of a nickle I like the first one better.

Getting Garb made for war and Fencing

My freshly painted mask

A fencing doublet I made for My DH the sleeves are attached

The sleeves are done in the Leine style of his Irish persona. 
I added an elastic draw strings to the sleeves to gather the wrist and there is a hoop that slips over his thumb that keep the sleeve firmly in his glove. I gathered the sleeves before sewing on the trim then I sewed them into the tube that they are. I then added a reinforced piece fabric to the under arm as per armor requirements. then I gathered the sleeve enough to fit the arm to the doublet.I think it needs some gold piping. But all in all it looks good and he is happy with it.

beaded circlet

This is a 4 ft long necklace that is really designed to be a circlet. First you wrap it back on it's self then you fasten it. It does also work as a necklace and a bracelet too. I used glass pearls with black glass large seed beads, and small silver seed beads , and Alexanderite (green stone).

Crochet hook roll

Every crocheter will eventually need a place to store their hooks. This is a hook roll it holds 20ish hooks (small hooks can share a pocket so it can hold much more then that) it rolls up and you tie it then it can either go with you or be stored. This way you can forget where you put all you hooks at the same time.

Felt Poodle skirt

Every little girl should have a Poodle skirt. this one is made with Felt that is made in the USA with recycled materials (plastic bottles) I sewed a couple sequins on and used plain ribbon for the leash  The poodle is a patch from a store. I made a pocket for elastic in the waist and have a Velcro closer. I left the pocked for the elastic open so that it could be sized for the child.
