Medieval hood

For the last week I have been working on a super secret project.  My daughters and I have been working on a hood for my husband for Father's Day.  I marked out the wool and the girls took turns cutting it out.  They also took turns sewing it on their little sewing machine.  They did a great job.  I did the embroidery "loosely" based off  hoods I have seen in various manuscripts.  The embroidery is done in white wool.  We still need to cut out, sew and add the lining which will be black linen.  Unfortunately this picture does not do the color of the wool justice.  The hood is a beautiful royal purple.
