|Last fall I was asked to take over a little project, and this was the outcome|
A fellow artisan had been making small pouches with a white rose on a blue background for the ladies who had reigned as Princess of the Mists. During Alfar and Letitia's reign she moved to Cynagua, but still wanted Letitia to receive one. After speaking with my laurel about it, it was decided that I would make the pouch for Letitia. Since Letitia has been wearing mainly Norse garb, I decided a haversack would be more useful for her and got started!
tattoo haversack, the rose is stuffed with cotton to create a little pincushion. This was actually my first haversack, and first time using applique with wool. I cut out the rose a little too close to the actual embroidery and had to stitch around the entire edge to prevent the wool from fraying, and quickly learned never to do that again! All in all I think it turned out quite nicely.
|I'm very happy with the finished product and am proud to say that the recipient is too!!|
