    Embroidered goblet cover

    This was one of those projects that happens because I am bored and procrastinating starting other things. One of my great annoyances with outdoor events is the frequent appearance of bugs, dirt, and other crap in my drinks. Someone whose blog I follow posted a bunch of pictures of her embroidered goblet covers, and I had to make one. Procraftination at its best.

    This little goblet cover is only medievaloid. While I have found some lovely examples of Spanish and Italian chalice covers (for chalices of Communion wine), I don't have any evidence that they were ever used in an everyday context. The embroidery pattern is a Moorish star motif from a class I took ages ago on Moorish design, and the tassels and bird beads were my solution to needing enough weight to counteract a small breeze.

    The cover is blue linen embroidered in white DMC cotton thread. The tassles are the same thread, and the beads are from stash.

    I ran out of transfer paper, so I pinned the paper pattern to the linen and embroidered straight through it.

    Tiny silver birds, silver filigree beads, and red glass beads
