Late 15th century bag - Sent 1400-talsväska

 Needed a bad for my 1400s outfits so i took help from Katafalks tutorial. Here you can find the tutorial.
 
 Behövde en väska till mina 1400-talsdräkter och tog hjälp av Katafalks tutorial. Här finns den.


 
Hittade en bit mocka-skinn i min gömmor som passade till att bli väska. Den hade dock en gråbrun färg så jag färgade först med narvsvärta, likaså med flärpen. 

Found a piece of suede in my leatherbox that would do it as a bag. It had a gray brown shade so i coloured it first, the strap aswell.
 
 
Här syr jag på fickorna. Syr med vaxad linnetråd såklart
.
Here I am sewing the pockets. Im off course sewing with waxed linnen tread.
 
 
Knappen sydde jag av en cirkel som jag stoppade en träbit i, man kan även fylla med små skinnbitar.
 
I made the button from a circle that i put a piece of wood in, you can also fill it with leather pieces.
 

Sen trädde jag på glaspärlor på knytremmarna så den inte skulle se exakt likadan ut som Katafalks.
 
 Later I put som glas beads on the small straps so it would not look exactly the same as Katafalks bag.

Oslo viking ship museum

 
 Finnaly we got too see the museum! On the way back from Gudvangen we wanted to make a stop in Oslo to go to museums, the viking ship museum and then the folkemuseum wich is really close. The viking museum has a lot more than just the viking ships, they have furniture, textiles, tent parts, wagons etc. Here is a lovely animal (dragon?) head:

 Tent frame? This discussed but it is the most common theory. 
 

 
Some woven tapestries, Im gessing these are reconstructions.
 
 
 A handle of some sort

 
 Cards for card weaving

Oslo museum trip

 After we went to Oslo viking ship museum we went just a few 100m away to te folkemuseum (folk museum). Its a outdoors museum that have alot of buildings from different time periods but its also a indoor museum with clothing and furniture.
 

 Male outfit, early 1800s. wool coat, wool or cotton waistcoat and (probably) chamois leather pants with very pretty embroidery.

 
 
 
 18th century shoes, embroidered silk.

 
 Womens undergarments late 19th century.

 
 
 
 
 Fabric press cabinet.

 
 
 
Part of a shirt 1800-1850. Intresting gores on the shoulders!

 
 
 Loose collar to wear over a deep necklined shift. Very practical when you dont want to wash to much!

 
I looove this one!! Its a yarn basket. It lookes like viking age but its not! Its says; probably 1500-1700s, from Seljord in Telemark.
