One Glamorous Kitchen Towel

For some reason I really wanted to embroider lots of cute motifs on this towel. Which is a shame cause it’s going to be used in the kitchen and get all stained. It’ got a cat, ribbons, blue birds, cherries and a beribboned Scottie dog. It reminds me of the glam 1950s.

Viking Underdress

So here is my first Viking dress, at least that I made myself. This was really a test sewing. I wasn’t sure if I could get the pattern to work for me. I like how the dress turned out but it has the same problem as last time; where it rides up as you wear it eventually choking you. I was unsure of this color until I had it made up and now I really like it. It is 100% linen fabric. It was really fast to sew though. It took me 8 hrs, maybe. What I like about Viking dress is that there is a large amount of variation in style. Hopefully I can make a few more dresses before next years reenacting season. The second picture is it with the Apron Dress I was given. I think that it works, which is good because it means I don’t have to make a second Apron Dress.

Fisherman’s Cap

This is one sturdy little cap. It’s made from 100% wool and stitched in super strong single crochet. I made this for when I need a cap that will keep me very warm but doesn’t need to be stylish. It is made from spare yarn I had from making laces for my 14th century dress. It reminds me of the old-fashioned fisherman’s caps that I just love. All I need now is a pea coat.
