Re: Begins cape/cowl rings


I think 3/4" would be far too wide, but I figure Joann should have something suitable.

So I checked our local Michaels yesterday. Didn't have the correct size. And the metal looked cheap to boot. I think I'll have to go ahead and order the ones I found online. When it comes down to it, the shipping wasn't insane. Just higher than i wanted.

Re: Begins cape/cowl rings


So I did end up ordering the rings I found online and they arrived yesterday !! Let me say, they are spot on. I attached them, and they look perfect.

I will be laying down cloth in the cowl within the next couple days, and will post pics after.

Re: Begins cape/cowl rings


So here are some pics, inside and out. Sorry for the so-so quality. Didn't feel like messing w/ it too much.

All in all, I'm pretty happy with it. Had a bit of a time adhering the wool. Used some superglue gel in key spots, and probably will have to continue reinforcing places if they come loose.

Re: Begins cape/cowl rings: NEW PICS !!


Thanks Jeff !!!!

I even re-did the liner and rings since then. Didn't like the feel of superglue gel. Stiff and crackly. I used industrial contact cement brushed in. Worked well enough.

Someone also mentioned that the rings looked a tad too big, so I clipped a portion out of them, and bent them smaller.

 :cheers:
