Nalbinding for Vikings
How proud I was to offer these pouches of nalbinding to the King and Queen of Caid. Ah yes, I am one of those medieval re-enactors who does appreciate a little royalty on the weekends. This Saturday was a Festival of the Rose, an arts & sciences display with the SCA...what a wonderful site. I sampled breads and cakes and watched dear Medb Renata work her magic with pewter ( I even got a beautiful button). The Vikings were there with a grand display of a Viking encampment, it was Vikingly tasty. I was so inspired I am planning on sewing some Viking garb...I saw the cutiest little hoodlet...yummmm, must have one. These pouches were done in (my favorite) the Finnish stitch, very simple, a tube with a bit of increasing at the top. I braided the drawstrings and threaded them through the stitches. Must go nalbind and
bite into a Viking pinafore....chomp!
