LARP kit

Went back to FnH recently, which involved a few different craft projects. Mostly for Dans new feral elf character rather than myself, mind. Ears; Dan has weird ears. He claims no elf ears have ever fitted him. That sounded like…

Drying Rack

I was after something to use to dry herbs, so made a quick rack to hang from my kitchen ceiling. I want to build a more heavy duty drying rack for clothes in my spare room, so this is a…

Gauntlets

I’ve been helping a friend put together a feral Elf costume. I made him some leather arm pieces from scraps I had lying around. But they took him ages to put on and lace up, and he’s too skinny and…

Embroidered Lily
