It’s almost the end of the month again and I still haven’t gotten around taking pictures of my hauls from the last two months. I’m sorry about it but we’ll have to make do with the videos I shot for them.
I hope you enjoy them anyway! Have you had any thrifting luck lately?
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! ♥
UFO Friday is my bi-weekly series where I show you what projects I’ve been working on (UFO stands for UnFinished Objects). For more of these, look here and for every other week’s feature, Finished Things Saturday, look here.
I’m finally putting a new lining in this bag I thrifted for one of my LARP characters. I ripped out the old lining (which was horrible in both quality and style), took it apart and used it as a pattern for the new one.
The pieces of old lining ended up here:
That’s the box we use for scraps that aren’t really usable for anything else anymore (or when we have enough rags for the kitchen already) to later stuff draught stoppers and things like that with.
By now I’m done with the small pocket inside the lining for OOC things – I felt like hand stitches might look better here – and the sewing of the lining. All that’s left is to put it in and make a new flap for the bag after I took the zipper out for obvious reasons.
And I’m also experimenting with fruit leather. There might be a recipe coming up sometime soon!
What did you work on this week? What are your current projects?
Have a lovely weekend! ♥
In which I talk about dead fish and dragons. Seriously.
