With no Ithronian Adventures to report, I think it’s time to show off a few of the crafty projects I’ve recently been working on to flesh out Rowan’s kit. I’ve been working on “elements” to flesh out Rowan’s kit – satchel, shield cover, foresters sash and armband, as well as a few bits and bobs for other people.
Rowan’s cloth satchel (started ahead of Springfest 2012) and finally finished (Jan 2013) with a cross-stitch “tree of life” symbolising her name and her initial.
Rowan’s Foresters sash – initially as a Junior Forester, then as a full Forester (Summerfest 2012), addition of Rowan’s dragon insignia to the hip point, with the final addition of the Hunters Horn and the two stripes of the Huntsman rank.
Rowan’s dragon insignia – being prepared in the embroidery frame, as a belt sash and the original shield design.
Additional pages to Rowan’s notebook on heraldry – the Feudal Knight page.
Rowan Tait-of-Amblevale in the field.
Defender Lucius Aquarius Rhade’s Prayer Scarf.
A Vleyborian Cross for a special relic.
Recent fabric crafts – another belt sash, a red/silver belt twist and an “Office of County Affairs” arm band for a new character.
Digital heraldry for the local boards – the DePiercy family.
The beginnings of a Griffin Tabard – embroidering the front of the tabard in my new embroidery frame.
