Two last minute LARP projects:
1. Pilgrims bag made of uphosltery fabric, silk yarn and an old linen pillow case for lining. The fabric was so stiff, I had to hand sew over all the edges with silk yarn to make them "edgy". Ironing this thing was nearly impossible! On the bright side, the two sides had different colours, so I used the green "wrong side" for strap and... flap? Is it called a flap?



2. Aumônière made of fabric scraps (jaquard and linen). I finished that at the LARP Convention, thus it's a little bit messy.


One day, far in the future, I will beautify the tassels. Wink
Sadly, the only "action shot" I can offer does not show anything clearly. I'm sorry, guys!

(I posted about the belt here.)

Thank you both! Smiley
I wish I had more from* the red jacquard, but there's just enough left for another purse, some buttons or maybe a belt... Can you imagine that someone used it to line (parts of a) jacket made of puke green curdoroy and black velvet with a flower pattern? Such a waste! Cheesy

*Please correct my grammar, if neccessary. I spend to little time on talking with native speakers...^_^°
