About This Blog

My current research obsession is centered around purses and pouches from the European Middle Ages, and the accompanying hardware and passementerie. It is my hope to not only study extant items but also learn via reconstructive experiments; these will be limited for the most part to the textile components, however in the future I hope to explore the production of the metal frames.

Progress all around

So it appears that long swaths of time between posts are just going to have to be the norm. But, dear readers, I have been making progress (albeit slowly) on a few things:

First, the blue lattice-work purse, the embroidery portion of which I had finished late in August of 2010 (post here), is now three-dimensional! All that's left to do are add the drawstrings (not pictured, but they're a brilliant red), and finish the tassels (tassel heads will most likely also be red).

Secondly, the white, gold, and red pattern that I had interpreted from the 14th century altar hanging in the Cloisters (post here) is well on its way; roughly half done with the embroidery. A portion of that is shown below.

And finally, I've just begun working on another piece of embroidery to turn into a purse. The pattern for this one can be seen in this post. I think this will be the last bit of Germanic brick-stitch I do for a while. I need to branch out with my embroidery, and I also have a few other non-embroidery projects that need my attention as well.

How did you do this red and yellow band on the purse? Is it fingerloop? Do you have any documentation about this?
