Embroidered 14th century pouch for tomorrows 9th blog-birthday raffle finished!!! :D

Wooohoooo! Countdown! Just 1 day left!
…and I just finished my embroidered 14th century pouch for the raffle!

Racaire's embroidered 14th century pouch for the 9th blog-birthday raffle :D

I just managed to finish the embroidered 14th century pouch! …and there is still one day left until the raffle! *happydance*

This “petite” pouch is inspired by an actual 14th century pouch from France. I decided to rework two sections of an extant 14th century French pouch for it. You can see pictures of the other sections in my postings about my current commission which is based on the same extant 14th century French pouch: “14th century French pouch commission”

The final result looks so nice that I wish I could keep it for myself – but no, I will raffle it off tomorrow betwixt my members.

…and I will not only raffle off this pouch, I also added one of my embroidery scissors from my “personal fancy scissors collection”. You can see it at the picture above.
This is one of the scissors I got as a birthday present from Frank from the shop www.scherenkauf.de. I have to say that I really love the scissors which he gave me 2011. I use mine nearly every day since I got them and they still work like at the very first day. 🙂

Btw. one of my personal and favorite scissors, which I use very often is this one:

(unfortunately I can’t tell you if this are the same scissors I use but they look very close to what I use and have a really good rating)

…and finally some pictures of the finished pouch for you – Enjoy! 😀
