TOPIC: Does anybody know?

Re: Does anybody know? 07 Oct 2011 12:42 #70077

Rather than making cones first and needing to "get in there" to connect them, I would begin by sewing pairs of triangles together. Then use that seam as the "valley" of the cones as I position a pair with another to stitch the "ridges" which would be easier to access as it becomes three dimensional than the valleys would be. Does that make sense?

The individual cones look as if they are sewn together with oversewing/casting, I think that the 'inside' angles could be ladder stitch, for those I would suggest that you find a nice long needle - a darner perhaps, or maybe you might want to try a curved needle if you can find one.

I'm not so sure about keeping you quiet, but it will certainly keep you out of mischief :wink:

By the way, I've found japanese ring thimble making to keep me out of mischief - as if I needed anything else to do :roll: :lol:

Hi Rosemary! Thanks for the reply. I've made the template and assembled the first 'cone' But it isn't as straightforward as it looks! How do you 'get in there' when joining the cones together? As it is over cardboard, it is joined on the right side! LOL! Think it might keep me quiet for a bit!

They look like equalateral triangles to me, and the listing says that you need 60 of them, from card covered with fabric, then start making them up into pyramids, and then start trying to put the pyramids together. Looks like a fun thing to play with.

Does anybody know? 07 Oct 2011 05:01 #70064

Is there someone who knows where I can find a pattern to make a Victorian Pincushion, in a star shape - a 3D version - like this

http://www.quiltmuseum.org.uk/collections/mosaic-patchwork/all/198-2011/victorian-patchwork-star-pincushion.html


Hope someone can help, I would like to make a few of these for Christmas.
Thanks!
