Carpet bag [Jun. 25th, 2009|11:54 pm]
A place for Young Re-enactors to Connect


Since it's been a little slow, I thought I'd share one of my latest acquisitions....

....It's a carpet bag! I actually made this back in February. One of the members of my group created the pattern off an original she owns. The materials are the best approximations while still being cost effective.

The outside is an upholstery fabric. The inside is cotton. There is actually a divider inside, so there are two sections. The divider forms part of the hinge for the frame. The bottom is pasteboard covered in painted canvas.

Ignore the pins, I was too excited to take them out :D

Anyone else have anything for Show and Tell?
