This is amazing. Who would had thought that my hobby-life could seem so interesting for other people than me.

I would like to reward my audience with something nice. Therefore will I make a Sct. Brigitta Cap for the lucky winner. It will be simplified and without the embroidery in the middle, otherwise is it all hand sewn and will be send off to the lucky winner this January! It will offcouse be authentic, so all the reenacters can use it 🙂

All you have to do, is like my facebook page and have a friend do so. After doing so, you write a comment below with your name and your friend. If you already have done this, then write down below in the comments.

Last day for entering the give away is December 16.



The Sct. Brigitta pattern has been found, and tested. So I will start on the real one tomorrow. Here is some pictures of the finished sample. Hope you enjoy. Hopefully will I be able to post a Tutorial on the Sct. Brigitta Pattern soon. 😀

Sample of the brigitta cap

Hmm.. okay. My sample of the brigitta cap didn’t go that well. It was to small, and i couldn’t seem to tie it the right way. Thank god I didn’t you the expensive fabric!

Oh yeah! I also got my fabric. The wool is not what I imagine, but I can use it for a cape instead.

The Bonnet of St. Brigitta (Pattern)
