New Squire Belt

Squire Belt 1So, what do you do when your Lady gives you a beautiful new cotehardie, hood, and shoes to wear to 12th Night, and all you have is an old brown leather belt?  You make a new one of course.  I chose to honor my knight, by making a new squires belt for myself to wear with this outfit.  The metal plaques were another gift from my Lady and the suns and crescents were a Father’s Day gift from our daughters, Mirella and Molly. 

I began this process by dying the leather red.  The dye was applied with a piece of lamb’s wool.  The belt appears brighter in the picture below than the actual color.

Stay tuned for part 2, the construction phase.
