14th Century Girdle Purses

I wanted to enter the 2017 Ice Dragon A&S competition, but wasn’t sure what to make. I finally settled on making a matched pair of male and female 14th century girdle purses. They were well-received – I won the leatherworking category at Ice Dragon, and my entry received the second-highest score of any item entered.

Here is the completed male purse:

And the completed female purse:

I presented them as gifts to TRM of Æthelmearc Timothy of Arindale and Gabrielle van Nijenrode upon the occasion of their coronation.
