Velvet is always a fantastically period fabric choice for medieval and ren costuming, right? (Assuming, of course, that the character being costumed would have been allowed to wear velvet.) Annoyingly well legislated social norms to one side, velvet is great, isn’t it? Well, sadly, no… Not all velvets are created equally.

The holidays are a busy and stressful time, and I like to add to that by making christmas gifts. This year, I had some sort of “Move over, Martha!” moment and decided it would be fun to make my holiday cards. Thing is, it’s an excellent opportunity for some serious precision sewing practice.
