Here is some more pics of three other hoods I've done, the first one is from Emma fords book but the other two were made from the hood pattern creator (link to it on page one of this thread)

Hood 1
On this one I've done a cross stitch style stitching across the two parts you can see.
The hole for the beak is 1/8" smaller than on the pattern and fits better than other ones I've made


The braces at the back are threaded through each other like shown in Emma fords book

Hood 2 the red one

This one is stitched differently, as you can see the stitching on the out side but not the inside, i don't know what to call this type of stitching but it looks allot neater



I've turned it inside out to show what it looks like on the inside, see no stitch marks.
Well there is the knot at the bottom.


The same style of braces in Emma fords book

Hood 3

This one is from the same pattern as the red one but is slightly smaller. I've also added a neck strap to strengthen the area around the neck (and stop it losing its shape)



Inside view again


And the top knot is two knots rather than one.



Hope you like them, i will be making more hoods soon, please share your patterns and completed hoods!!!

Adam

The best suggestion I can offer is to get better leather, you'll get a better end product. Also, your braces are not installed properly, the edges of the "V" cut in the back should be on the inside of the braces, not the outside. Try to bury the second hole in the brace on the left side(from a rear view)under the slits in the hood, it keeps feathers from being pulled into the mix.

Thanks for the comment,
I'm still new to hood making so
how could the leather be better?
  • thickens
  • Harder
  • Different colour
  • Type of leather (Swede nubuc etc)
And i see your point about how feathers could be caught up in the braces

I would use 1.2mm vegtanned calf,get a stitch marker, learn how to x stitch you will get a much neater finish, take your time, always use a sharp blade, and have fun. make sure the hoods fit the birds, as i think the ones that you are stating with, dont look like they will fit, keep going and you will find hood makeing very addictive. atb Dave
