Feathered shawl
the pattern is called Alligator or Dragon scales, but I think it looks more like feathers.

Catwing shawl
This shawl was made from a pattern called 'Dragonwing', and I made it out of a yarn colored like a tabby cat, from a company that donates money to cat shelters.  When my cat Farli died, this was made to honor his memory... it's not quite the right color, but it's close.

Diamond shawl
Crocheted shawl, with raised diamond pattern.  It's roughly 6 feet long, and about 2 feet wide.  Took for freaking ever to make.

Sith Lord
And now I've gone to the Dark Side.   At least, temporarily.  There must always be balance in the Force.  

Again, all hand sewn, all leatherwork done by me.  And, also, modeled by me.

Blue Jedi
All the Jedi Costumes are belong to me.  Completely hand sewn, by me.  Leatherwork, also done by me.  Also, modeled by me.

I am an amateur seamstress, an embroiderer, painter, and student of all things textile and Viking Age history related. I am in the SCA, and when I'm not sewing I'm engaging in my other interest, Armored Combat.
Interests
Lately my focus has been on costumes for the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, which at the time of this writing is 11 days away.  I have had my 4 day pass for MONTHS and am looking forward to it with growing anticipation. 

A couple of other people I know are dressing as Jedi this year, and I was convinced to make a Jedi costume to join them.  I went with the blue robe because I found the photos by hapajedi which feature a Jedi Master with blue robes, and was inspired.  I like the traditional look, and am still hoping to finish a brown robe someday, but I like to be different as well.  Blue is different. :)

The other project that I wanted to do is Oliver Queen's hood from Arrow, which I finished today.  I love the show, and I really like his look.  And the costumer in me took one look at his costume and said 'yeah, I can make that.'  So, I did.

I swear the people that make that show have it out for costumers, though.  Finding pictures of the front of his clothing is not hard.  Finding pictures of the back is damn near impossible.  Eventually I did, but it was not easy. 

And now that Olly's Hood, and my Jedi Robes are done, I am out of projects.  I could (and probably should) finish the brown robe and the brown tabbard for the Jedi outfit... but I kinda want to find something else to do.  I have 10 sewing days left, I could do something with that. 

Or I could get back to work on SCA projects.
