Here's the finished product of Gib's amazing flame applique efforts. I should give you some background first though:
Gib does medieval sword fighting. Instead of swords, large sticks of rattan are used so combat can be full speed and full contact, but without risk of cutting off limbs or heads. He's enjoying the armed combat as a complement to his unarmed karate combat - there are many parallels.
He wanted a new tabard to go over his armour. The flames are the symbol of his "household" (the group of people who he fights with). I helped him with parts of it, like the neckline, but he did most of the work himself. The best part is, he has been inspired to sew more things.
