One of the most important things to carry around when LARPing is a bottle of water, especially when you’re at a game where you run around a lot, probably get into fights and get overall exhausted, most probably under the burning sun. I have a canteen for that, and while it was sensible and okay it wasn’t really pretty.
Bambi has the same (and I couldn’t find pictures of mine before), we both bought it for less than 8,-€ and it doesn’t disturb the big picture too much. However there was room for improvement. I found improvement in the form of leather scavenged from a sofa destined for the dump.
I took the old wool cover apart, used it as a pattern for the leather pieces and then just sewed the new cover directly on my canteen. The top is still visible but it’s handier this way and it’s not really disruptive, either, so I decided to keep it that way for now. Now, pretty might not be the right word for how it looks now, but it is far more satisfying.
What projects did you work on this week?
Have a wonderful weekend! ♥
