My Victorian Traveler Bag

My Traveler aka Carpet bag is finally finished! I am quite happy with how it turned out. Still want a bigger version though :)

When I made the bag I was looking at the measurements of originals, reproductions and ofcourse the original Mary Poppins bag movie prop and wrote down the measurements. So I could scale them down to fit my bag frame. Later on I wanted to check on how big, a bigger version would have to be. If I wanted it to be same size as the movie prop but couldn't find the measurements anywhere on-line anymore! I did find my own notes, but I wrote down the sizes of a lot of bags without naming them. I do remember the movie prop as being the largest one. So if  (big if people!) I remember correctly the measurents are: 21 inch wide, 17 inch tall and 7 inch depth.

Please correct me if I am wrong or tell if you know I'm right!

Viking life

Yo ho, yo ho, a viking life for me.
We pillage, we plunder, we archer and loot....

Last weekend we attended a viking event at the Archeon. The weather was great, the company was great. So even though school and work have started again it felt like a little vacation. In fact we had such a wonderful time we did't get around to making a lot of pictures. We were to busy enjoying ourselves.

Our neigbours tent with a roman boat in the background.

It might be a reconstruction of a Roman boat,
I still think it looks cool!

Our tent with my chair and our banner

I still have a lot to learn but I really enjoy doing it!

Lucky shot! ;-)

We also had a viking vacation in our vacation. Again we had lovely weather, a wonderful location and great company. I still owe you the pictures, so I am posting them here.

Enough pictures for now. If you want to see more visit the album on our facebook page: Prehistorisch Dorp Eindhoven

Although I love doing early medieval events I am really happy that I have a later medieval event to look forward to. At the end of this month we will be joining some friends at the Prehistorisch Dorp Eindhoven for some 13th century fun.
