Tell us about yourself!
Thanks,On to the next sewing project: a bag that contains small musket parts and cleaning supplies. This will be tough for me, very small pouches in a small bag.After that is a "housewife's bag" a bag that contains thread, needles, etc, that the soldier needed to repair clothing while away from home. (No, I'm not sexist, that is what the 1860's soldier called them) Gosh! You have really helped me here.But you didn't tell us about the needle pokes and how finicky the machine is. The machine has to have EVERTHING it's way! As far as my pin pokes, I'm a physician> force a small bleed, use Betadine into the wound and small, flexible cloth adhesive bandage.I am loving this class!Thank you, Peter
Hi Mikaela,I did complete the Civil War games bag. The fabric is muslin. The buttons are not exactly matched because they are handmade from a Musk Oxen tusk we discovered dead in the Amazon Basin. In the pictures you will see see the whole project rolled up for marching and the opened up with games inside. The little blue bag(made by your instructions) contains the dice, so they will not get lost in the field. All games are here.I already have people asking me for the pattern or the price of this one bag. This one is priceless.It isn't wedding dress quality, but it is tough and a good gaming table when placed up ended on the reenactor's battlefield. Thank you for your help!

A really neat idea for the physics classroom. Like GregoryL20 said, there are a lot of lessons for the physics lab, undergrad, non-major level.Thanks, Starman

Thank you Audreyobscura,It is hit or miss! My camera has a huge lens for gathering light so it may be less of an exposure that others. We are finding that variables are lens size, Sun, even the paper(including the manufacturer). Good luck and stay posted!
Nice bellows! I didn't think of that one. I think I'll try that, I am really enjoying the historic technique(s). I purchased books on Amazon about other alternative photographic processes.
