Medieval “Token of Affection”

Token

In days of yore (before indoor plumbing), it was common for a lady to give her knight a token of affection to carry into battle. You can do something similar whether or not your beloved heads off to work every morning toting a broadsword.

I’ve put together a tutorial for making a simple cross-stitched bracelet that you can personalize to your heart’s content.

This is an easy and romantic gift, and would also be an excellent item to give to groomsmen/bridesmaids for a medieval wedding.

(Incidentally, my workshop is beginning to get cluttered with prototypes, so I’m selling a few of the items I’ve made for tutorials in the One-of-a-Kind section of the store. If you don’t want to Doom It Yourself, you can buy it cheap. The bracelet shown above is available here).
