PostPosted: Fri Feb 23, 2018 9:04 am    Post subject: Changing embroidery method to using Quilter's Pounce & C Reply with quote

After many months of trying to get the embroidery done on my machine I have decided to ditch the Solvy Plastic. I got curious and did a test embroidery swatch without the Solvy and found my machine stitched perfectly! So now to try method #2 to transfer the embroidery design on the silk quilt tops. After some research I have settled on using the Quilter's Pounce and Chalk method to transfer the design. It just means double sewing, first to make the templates and then to stitch the design on to the silk quilt tops.

See how to Pounce:

Here's an update on my J. Nu tabbards.

Current state of my tabbard. by Archivist32 Traveller, on Flickr

This is left tabbard over the shoulder. I am sewing it 3 inches at a time and copying the template as I go.

You'll get there. Smile Nice to see such attention to the details. That really makes a costume looks awesome.

What's the definition of a close resemblance for J. Nu's tools?

"8. Jedi librarian tools. There should be 2-3 of different designs closely resembling the ones used in the movie. The tools are attached to a brass ring on a medium brown leather strip. If 2 tools are used, one strip will be enough."

I just bought one of these spindles to paint it silver. I thought it would be a 'close' resemblance to one of her tools. Since i don't have a metal lathe or sculpture skills to make anything.

Will this do?

Cheers,

I'm not sure it will be close enough, but I think it could be if you build a little on it. Smile
