Once again WOF's templates came through for me. Thanks! They only took a couple of hours, including distractions, to sew. Sometimes I get side tracked easily.
They turned out realy good. Where can I find those templets?
Thanks. The patterns can be located in this thread along with some other useful patterns. http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=20334
Very Nice Job!! How did you weather them? They look like they have a lot of duty time.
Real very nice stuff!
First I lifted the flaps and sprayed a little under them first so they weren't perfectly clean underneath and then I closed them and sprayed it a little heavier on the outside. I used a spray bottle with very thin, black, water-based acrylic paint and just sprayed them, varying the distance of the bottle from the fabric, untill I thgought they looked dirty enough. Then I thought they still looked a little too light so I finished off the bottle of tan dye I used for my cape to darken them up a bit.
Job well done there... 8)
I forgot to mention earlier, and if anyone is wondering... I used the same duck cloth material that I used for the cape.
