16th century pouch

Time for Nobelese Largesse swap round 2!  This time documentation is required, and my recipient is someone with a late period persona.  Goal #1: Find something from the right time that looks like it would be interesting to make.   This Purse from the V&A museum looks good.  Goal #2: Find a way to make it in the time I have (til July 31).  I will be using a cream wool that I already have for the base, as I think it will look nice and I will be adjusting the stitching style to use stitches I am more comfortable with and sew a bit faster (stem and satin stitch).  I will also not be filling in the background with embroidery since I sew way too slowly for that to get done.  Embroidery was done in linen thread.

Finished!
