Happy New Year.
Last year I challenged myself to do more fashion making rather than only making LARP kit. It didn’t quite work, but I enclose below a summary of my year of making.
The seasons have turned once again and the woodlands are a riot of flame colours and autumnal bounty. At this time of year I find my thoughts turn towards misty atmospheric mornings, crisp days bright with frost, and chill nights filled with cold stars, and more excuses for hot chocolate! But they also turn towards preparing for larping over the winter, so I would like to share with you my thoughts on how to stay safe during these colder months and how to get the most out of your hobby!
I feel it’s been ages since I’ve done a proper sewing round up of kit and general projects, so in the lull between event and event write up I would like to share with you an overview of recent projects. I hope you enjoy, but be warned it’s a bit of a long post …
Earlier this year I wrote a little of Judith’s inspiration soup and showed the kit I had quickly pulled together. Months have passed and I have had a chance to develop the kit further; and I would like to share some of her garb with you, as she progresses from adventuring Esquire through to Lady Knight.
Sometimes when we are at LARP we want to keep our mundane items safely out of sight. Wallets, phones, keys – all our important possessions need to go somewhere. Whilst camping we can tidy things away into cubbyholes and bags, however we always need these things to hand on day sites.
In this bag tutorial I will show you how to add a hidden pocket that can be closed with a button (or substituted for a zip) to provide a secure place to stash your keys close at hand.
