This is going together much more easily than I’d hoped. I had to cut the front & back pieces out on the floor though.
I purchased a blank, wooden hinged box from a local craft store with the intent of making a faux box. When I saw photos from the Doctor Who Expo (I think), I was intrigued by this box/book but am unsure as to what it is from. This photo was taken at a table with other goodies. Since the scene it was used in was so dark, I am very glad these images surfaced.
The book belongs to Ashildr (Lady Me) and is on a book or music stand in her manor. I found it 7:42 minutes into “The Woman Who Lived” episode.
So far, I have painted the fake book pages on the edge and covered it in black leather (I used black because I couldn’t find brown scraps in the correct sizes). My next step will be to adhere the pearls that create the cross. I also still need to paint the edges to match the leather.
I just finished my first tricorn hat!
I purchased the wool felt capeline from Company Jedrzejko. This company is located in Poland, but the capeline plus shipping to Texas was less than $20.
I added wire to help in shaping the hat, followed by hand sewing the trim onto the edge of the hat.
