A preview of how the Tutbucks Canopic Coffee Cups will look:
(it turned out I had made a lid for the short/small cup, so I had to re-do the lid design for a tall cup. Thanks to the local Starbucks for giving me sample cups!)

Photos behind the cut )

OK, now here's the challenge... What do you think are the Tutbucks names for the sizes?
Tall = ??
Grande = ??
Venti = ??

maybe Architect, Pharoah, Nile X-)

I took a little time to work with the images that [livejournal.com profile] jadecat9 pointed me to and am very pleased with the resultant Canopic Jar Coffee Cup Lids.

photos behind the cut )

I also drew a clean copy of the "Tutbucks" cartouche logo so I can use it to lay out the real decoration on the cartouche. I'll admit to being tempted to print part of it out as an iron-on transfer, since most food-service places will not shell out bucks to bead employee uniforms. :-)

PS If you'd like to make your own set of lids, I turned my projections into a PDF file available at http://www.twistedimage.com/productions/mummy/canopic_coffee_lids.pdf. I just ask that you refrain from using them until after CC24, and that you give credit where credit is due!

Photos of the cartouche and all the basic pieces completed
photos behind the cut ) Now I have to do the beading, and if I can find adequate images of the four sons of Horus, make paper-cut-out canopic jar lids

As promised, photos of the kilt and apron. Photos under the cut )

Next -- sew the cartouche and then start beading like mad.

Here are the photos of the kilt construction, behind the cut. Note that this is definitely a micro-kilt (about 14" hemline)... the description calls for "snug shorts" to be worn beneath it. The wing-shaped apron (visible on the box in the first photo) wraps over this, hanging lower than the kilt in front.

Photos behind the cut )
On to finishing... embroidering the front apron of the kilt, and making and embroidering the waistband ofr it. Then it's the cartouche and the beading.

I just finished the major construction of the pleated kilt for the Fashion Show piece. Photos to follow (they are taking a while to upload)

I used the basic construction technique for a Scottish kilt, but instead of a few deep sets for pleats, I have *31* (that's thirty-one) 3/4 inch pleats running from front hip around and back to front hip.

Oy. The very pretty calcutta cloth can't be trusted to hold the pleats; it's hand is much too soft, so this entailed:


  • Measure and mark

  • Pin and press the pleats

  • Stitch the top 4" as a seam on the inside

  • Edgestitch the full length of the inside crease

  • Edgestitch the outside creases from hem to the end of the seam

  • Topstitch over the seam (matching the edgestitching on the crease)

  • Measure the length of the pleated waist... damn. Need 28"*, ended up with 25.5"

  • Add 3 more pleats as above



*The center front is a 9 inch wide smooth lapped "apron", similar to a Scottish kilt (although that has a much wider apron). This is where the embroidery on the barrista kilt will go, and over which the quilted apron lays.

The apron for the Egyptian Barrista is complete. (Photos behind the cut)

Moving on to the kilt and cartouche...
