Tiraz bands for the 12th century riding coat that I’m making. Using this as a guideline for the general pattern (because my favourite hobby is to extrapolate patterns from pictures, and then feel like I want to stab myself in the eye with my needle. But I digress.) Placement of the bands I’m basing on this.
linen cotton on linen, with a bit of satin stitch for the blue bands. Design based on this, with minor changes. There’s not really much else to say, except that for a change, my fingers were not bleeding after I’d completed that part.
(Clicking on pictures should embiggen them, if you really want to see every detail of my horribly uneven work.)
So yeah. Animals from this 12th century mirror.
