Night knight!

Here is is the medieval knight appliqué finished and ready to go. Quite pleased as he has a bit of movement in him. The picture was based around a medieval seal of William de Forz whose family owned Skipton Castle prior to the Cliffords and were founders of Bolton Priory. Background is cotton velvet, chain mail made with DMC Diamanté, sur coat calico and the rest cut from silk dupion and leather for the helmet. The sword is balsa wood covered with aluminium foil. 

Now, back to whitework......


  1. Astounding work! Every little boy within 30 miles of me wants this one for their bedroom.

    1. Ha ha, Chilly Hollow, not all of them little! Thanks for you comment. Pippa
