…some nailbinding again – my finished nailbinded and embroidered hat :D

2018-03-23 - Racaire - my favorite nailbinded and embroidered hat - SCA - nailbinding - hand embroidery - old craft - old technique - A&S - SCA arts and scienceMy nailbinded and embroidered hat is finally finished! *happydance* And you can tell that it is my absolute favorite as I am wearing my new nailbinded and embroidered hat nearly every day for several hours. 😀

And before you ask – no, my sweetheart doesn’t object to it as he knows that I am always at least a little bit cold. Everyone who has met me during cold weather can tell that staying warm is definitely one of the main objectives of my life. But that’s not only because the cold makes me feel uncomfortable. No, it’s far more than that. Being cold is normally followed by being ill and I really don’t enjoy being ill. Therefore I rather stay warm and cosy and healthy! 🙂

…and this nailbinded and embroidered hat keeps me definitely warm and cosy. *giggle* Not only that, I think that it’s also a quite unique hat and looks pretty cool on my head, if i may say so. 🙂

…and one of the things which I love about America is that people actually appreciate if you are wearing things that are different or have a rather unique style. I had several people coming up to me who told me that they loved my hat while I was running errands in town. Back in Austria it would have just earned me some weird odd looks from the side… Yeah, I love living in America where I can be me – as crazy or as simple I wish to be… 😀

Yeah, nailbinding and embroidery – two of my favorite hobbies combined together. That also doubled the fun for me while I was working at this nailbinded and embroidered hat… 😀

But let’s take a closer look at how I embroidered my nailbinded hat – enjoy! 😀

I am sorry, but the following content is restricted to logged in members of my blog.

Well, I hope you enjoyed today’s posting about my new favorite nailbinded and embroidered hat. Btw. I looked through the file section on my computer and found several images of other nailbinded and embroidered projects I made in the past which you might like to see as well… 🙂

However – enough about nailbinding and embroidery today – I have to start cooking dinner for my sweetheart and then explore the 2 color spiral nailbinding technique a little bit further… Wonder how it would look with 3 colors like green, red and white… Hmmmm… 😉

Best regards Racaire
