Like the previous project, this particular bag is destined to be used for largess for this year at Pennsic War. It was specifically created for the Kingdom of Gleann Abhan. Only the embroidered ram and the bag itself is my work. The beautiful, tablet woven strap is the work of my weaving-goddess-apprentice who created the design and then wove it up using a lovely cotton rug warp.
The bag itself is a pretty woven wool that is lined in red silk. The ram is wool applique, embellished with cotton perl, silk over-appliques on the horns, and seed beads.
