This still has quite a ways to go, but I’m happy with how it’s progressing. I’ve sewn together the strips; now, I need to dye it (Aztec Gold), and then line and assemble the pouch.
I really, really like the knots and birds.
The name part is a little… intense. You can certainly read it from across the room. I may do some beadwork around the edges or something, to lighten this up a little. It should be better once it’s gold, too.
It’ll have a strap, eventually – I’m considering a strapwork design, or maybe an Egyptian Diagonals design. I’ve been having some serious fun with that stuff.
