'twas the eve before a trip to the Rennaisance Festival, and my friend, in a tunic, draw string pants, and leather boots had the gumption to put her hands firmly on her hips and suggest that we make a leather pouch for her to carry Ye Old stuff in - because I didn't make pants with pockets. 

All we needed was a bit of scrap leather, my sewing machine (with leather needle), some glue, a sharp blade, and an old button.  The D rings and leather string were stolen from a belt in my closet (I buy lots of my findings as parts of thrift store belts  Wink).  So here is what we threw together during nap time...  I think we did pretty good job!

Action shot - (these pants are not the offending pocketless ones mentioned earlier)

Very nice! I think accessories really make or break a renfest outfit.

Not having to hunt down a beast and tan the leather saves so much time  Grin

Very slick 21st century accessory, too

Thanks guys!  Maybe she wil wear it to work to carry her gold pieces, twine, cell phone, credit card and flint.
Okay - so it may not be historically accurate...  but we aren't Ren Faire "people" but rather visitors once a year who are weird and dress up!  I think it's nice when visitors make an effort to do a little something historical - or hysterical - either is good.  It makes it more fun!

That being said, my friend wore Ye Old sunglasses the whole day, so that sort of dimmed our historical effort a bit... Roll Eyes
