Firstly, very many thanks "Alennka" and "My Wee Life" for passing an award to The Tenement. I'm so pleased you like what I'm doing with this. I've still to decide who to pass it on to and should have that sorted out for my next post but in the meantime, I've been making a couple of kilts.
They're not for inclusion in The Tenement but are part of another little project I'm working on but I figured given that they're a Scottish item, this was the best place for them.
I've no idea what the tartans (or if they are specific tartans at all). I got the fabric at a recent fair and basically had to take what I could get!
The kilt pin was made from the top of a cocktail stick, split in half and painted silver. The decorative stone on it was liberated from a top with sparkles!! The sporran is made from a circle of leather, a piece of cut up jewellery and fur - yes, real fur!
Thank you Thomas for supplying the fur. Sadly he's no longer the big bruiser that he was. (That pic was taken four years ago). He's now a wee old man aged 20.
..........and while I'm here posting about kilts, here are my two very own home grown "kilties"......
