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.

Cloth Satchel Embroidery pattern

Satchel Decoration

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.

Forester sash Forester Armband

Dragon insignia Huntsman of the North

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.
