Re: Looking for some boot options

Thanks! I hadn't actually thought about making them out of leather, because they were going to be a stop-gap measure until I purchased boots...but honestly, since they seem to be so practical in actual use, I might just decide to make a leather set to use indefinitely; doing so would make their stor...

Re: What Was Meant by "Gauntlets?"

Historical precedents aside, it could be just the movie fan in me affecting my opinion as I've always pictured the reference as an archery bracer; I'll admit that too many Robin Hood movies and the New Line contributions have shaped this view. https://i.imgur.com/yMlZpLt.jpg https://i.imgur.com/NmAq...

Does the leather stopper double as an awl?


Yes...he hardened the center of the leather (somehow) so that the blunt/oversized needle could be used as an awl, without pushing through the back of the stopper; there's also a skein of thread that tucks inside the bone tube, too.

Re: Looking for some boot options

I'm fond of the 'boot' style of footwear myself, even though the turnshoe is probably more historically accurate (and practical) in the long run...I blame it on my "Hollywoodification", having been exposed to various costumed iterations of Robin Hoods and Aragorns in my formative years, lo...

Re: Sewing kit

Thanks for the compliments, all; he's a pretty crafty fellow, and is actually working on creating an Elf Ranger kit for himself.

Re: Sewing kit

I just realized that this should probably been posted in the "Hard Kit" forums...the Mods can move it, if they see fit. :)

Re: Looking for some boot options

I guess I'll finally get around to posting the boot toppers I made for my kit; I drafted a custom pattern and used an old wool-blend army blanket, adding some canvas edge trim and hand-stitching detail down the rear seam (yes, these are machine-sewn, as I was pressed for time). I don't plan on using...

Sewing kit

I thought I'd take a moment and post up the sewing kit that my eldest son made for me last year, made from hand-engraved deer leg bone with leather stopper, and the paper package it came in. https://i.imgur.com/nlfJ66j.jpg https://i.imgur.com/y4sl4Wg.jpg https://i.imgur.com/VYhQzeL.jpg https://i.img...
