LR - Fian Ruadh Tabards

I have a basic tabbard made (doesn't have the design on it yet) in red trigger with the black trim. It has a keyhole neck that is trimmed around the neck and down the front slotted part of the key.  I suggest leaving off this front verticle trim - it will look better without it once the design is on the chest portion.

I have been looking for some yellow-gold trigger for the flame, and it is not nearly as easy to find as the red and black colors.
Also, there was some talk of a reasonable number of LR, especially those involved in the archery at defender, all wearing forest green tunics for the event. The Lake Worth Wal-mart just got in two 25 yartd bolts of $ 1.67 per yard broadcloth in this color. Forest Green is considerably darker than the Kelly Green you usually see.  Are people still interested in this? I will help with some sewing.

Putting together several Robin Hood style hats if red/black counterchanged colors, with a yellow feather for range officials, etc to wear was also discussed. Does anybody have a pattern for these hats? I cannot find my hat pattern book.

Polydore, trying to be heraldic!

Each member of the company should try to make his/her own tabard (or negotiate with someone to make it for you).  The basic tabard is red with one inch wide black edging around the borders and neck-opening.  A medium weight trigger should prove best for durability.  This weekend, I will draw up the emblem for the front and back (black star in a yellow circle, with our flaming ember on the star) in proper size (about 9 inches across), and cut out templates so that we can all make the emblem the same size.  I'll let everyone know when they are ready.
