Title: Viking Embroidery
Post by: oceansoul on April 26, 2012 01:41:00 PM
So the end is nearly in sight for my viking garb, yippee!!  I still have some embroidery to finish but here is the finished embroidery for my woolen hood.  I love these endless knot patterns.
It's stitched on linen with silk embroidery thread, and then appliqued onto the woolen hood which is also lined with linen.  I think I'm just a bit in love with the gold silk I've used on this.




(It's now got all the visible seams stitched all the way around)

Shiny silk is shiny.


Oh how I love pretty Viking things :D

 ;D I'm such a dork. I saw the thumbnail for it and thought it was Gallifrey-ian.

It is very nice. I like the color combo.
