1  Leather Quiver (technically a bag) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by htisme on: May 28, 2017 12:06:18 PM
I continue in my series of posting past projects!

I took a lesson in leather working at a game convention a few years ago, and my friend asked me to make him a quiver for his SCA persona. This was my first real leather working project, so I am happy with how it turned out. This was intended to be a 12th century Moorish quiver, and was based on images from books and google search. I simplified it a bit in the decoration as it was my first project.  

I started with some plain, vegetable tanned leather, and cut out the basic shape:

I created a pocket, and did some tooling and dyeing:

Then I punched my stitching holes and stitched the sides. I added straps so it would hang from a belt. Thimbles are your friend when working with think leather; I caved and bought a few after wearing a hole in one of my fingers! I found the silicone/rubber ones with the metal tips extremely useful as you can push with the metal part and get a proper grip on your needle with the silicone part. I finished my leather with dubbin, which is just a mixture of petroleum and animal fat of some type. Its sold in the shoe polish section. I find it easier to work with than oils.

First belt test:

2  Baby Dress in Knitting: Completed Projects by htisme on: May 28, 2017 09:53:53 AM
This is a dress I made for my friend's baby who was born last April. I knew I wanted to knit her something, but as her first few months of existence would be the middle of summer, finding a good lightweight pattern was a challenge!

I ended up combining a few free patterns to make this dress, in fingering weight cotton yarn. I wrote down the pattern, however have yet to transcribe it. I will likely put it on Ravelry at some point. The back closure was just chain stitch loops and bunny buttons.

Pictures here, with the adorable recipient as model:

It could be a little longer, but overall I'm happy with it.
