Bayeux Tapestry Embroidery Finished

YEAH..... I have actually finished the embroidery for the pouch for Dad's Birthday!!!!

now i have to sort out a lining...the closure method, a drawstring cord and use the "embroidered band" method on the Medieval Silkwork Blog. Thanks Machteld. I love this method makes it look really neat.

18 hours?? approximately (maybe a little less for the moments i got distracted by what i was doing.)

 Here is the actual shape of the pouch

Here is the pouch with the intended trimmings for the side decoration.

 20 hours (with the making of the tassels and cutting and ironing the lining and back...)

I have since steamed and washed the tassels. (really makes this cotton tassel hang beautifully and looks rather like silk.)
