  1. Thank you. I decided to go with younger futhark short twig on instead of elder. I love elder but had decided that younger futhark better fit my interest.
  2. Maybe... I have tried using sewing machines before, but I like sewing by hand better. For me I feel the strength is better, also some of the extreme shapes in this jacket makes it almost impossible for a machine. As far as clothes go I have only made frontier boots and a vest. One day I might go to a machine but for now I will stick to using my hands.
  3. I stripped down an old ACU blouse that was issued to me in the army, no pattern for the hood and yes the lining is 100% wool it is black.
  4. In a bind! Trying to make something unique and falling short!

      I have been a member for a couple of years, thanks for the recommendation though it is an amazing site.

  5. If I may make a suggestion. Find a article of clothing that fits you well and just break it down and use that as a jumping off point for whatever you decide to make.
  6. Thank you for noticing. I went with short twig younger futhark on the carvings. Sorry to here about your loss. My wife helped out so that relieved some of the stress.
  7. I really like the sheath everything is well done! I will agree that the stitches are close to the edge but for a first it is very well done. If I remember my Al Stohlman correctly on stitching, then the height of the leather combined is usually the distance from the edge you go.
  8. Yeah, I have figure tips of iron now. Thank you for the comment Thank you
  9. It took a total of 85 to 90 hours if I had to guess.
  10. Here Are a few close ups of the trim and carvings
