April HSF-Challenges

Accessorize  1910s Bag’s embroidery

So I finished off the Finland 100 years-bag in time. I embroidered number 27 in the bag to symbolize the Finnish Jäger-unit which was trained in Germany in secrecy under guise of “Boy scout”-activity to fight the Russian invasion.


Songs from movie Jäeger’s bride



Genderbender Snuffbox

I was out of ideas. I mae this little box with crackle effect-lacquer and incorporated 27 again there and the two paintings of Maiden of Finland fighting the russian eagle.

Tops…..   Tudor-style headband

I did a tudor-inspired french gable-hood.


…and Toes.  WW1 garters

I crackle effect-lacquered these printed pics of “Feldfraus” into 1910s garters. I made needlelace-frame for the pics and  added two vintage snaps at the back to keep them in place.



UFO-pile  Marie-Antoinette’s gambling-inspired necklace

Inspired by a scene of 2006 film of Marie Antoinette where the mother of pearl-gamblign chips can be seen.



Circles, rectangles and squares  Engageantes

Last minute thing. I had a strip of pink large trim that fits into engageantes perfectly.

War and Peace  Patchbox

Another Feldfrau graces this patchbox-lid.



By the sea  Sailor-collaret

I found a blouse from fleamarket that was too small for me but the collar was too nice to pass up. So I cut the fabric off and was left with nice sailor-collar that I will incorporate on my Finland 100 years-blouse.
