Arya's Dragonscale Armor

Wool Creation:
As the Maned Cat pelt was delivered, Lillium spent a good amount of the day simply cleaning the delicate pelt. She hummed and sang to herself as she worked, the melody helping to distract and encourage her all the same. It was a lovely way to keep on track. Once the pelt was brushed and tended, she would properly clean and wash the fur, caring for each and every strand of hair. Dirt and grime would wash off, as would the edges of dried blood. This was a long arduous process as she had to set it to dry in the sun, yet be sure not to expose it too harshly. The sea-faring town was good for this, as it's cool temperature allowed to keep it a safe temperature. This was done, and the pelt finally dried. She took it inside.

Once inside, the work would begin as the new day started. She took the fur, shaving and cutting the hair as close to the pelt as she could to gather the mound of what would become wool. She took the wool now, going to take it to the spinner to spin. This took hours upon hours as she had to thread the fur into yarn, careful with every strand. She took this time to show her little daughter as she grew curious with her mother being gone so long. She taught the girl how the mechanism worked, setting her on her lap to guide her hand into the furs. "See? It's not too hard, just takes a little time. I'll be down in a minute. Get your daddy to make you your tea." She smiled to the girl as she kissed her cheek and sent her on her way. Finally, after hours upon hours, the yarn was done, and it was time to make the wool fabrics. Setting the yarn on a loom she began to work the thread into wool, taking yet a few more hours out of the day. By the time she was finally done, the day had gone and she stepped out of the room. The surprised look of her husband greeted her as he carried the twins in his arms to set them to bed.

Recreating the Gambeson:
Taking the garment and looking it over, she set it before herself on a table. She sat up, looking over the stitch-work and nodding to herself. She began, undoing the connection between the gambeson halves, working carefully to not tear the fabrics. This could have taken her hours, but she worked arduously. This was what calmed her in the end, finding peace in the monotonous work. She set the pieces before herself, looking to what she had. She layered the wool atop the gambeson, measuring everything out right and marking where she needed to cut. This took quite some time, as she had to cut it perfectly to work inside the garment itself.

Once the piece was cut and layered, she'd pin it down, layering both halves together to re-stitch the garment back into place. It was a simple procedure, as the original pieces had already been made, but made complex by the addition of the filling. As she continued on, and stitched the hem and trimmed the edges, she made sure to test the gambeson. Pins still in place to keep the wool from shifting, she gave it a once over. She then began to sew into it it's signature diamond pattern, just to be sure the wool inside would not shift or move when worn. It would be terribly inconvenient to fix otherwise and Lillium had promised a quality garment. She had to do everything perfectly or it simply would not work in her eyes. Everything had to be perfectly pinned, stitched and sewn.

Once this was finally finished and the diamond pattern revealed itself on the cloth half of this gambeson she could finally smile in success as her work was finally done. She could hear the familiar footsteps of her husband as he'd now wander into the workshop looking for her. The joyous screams of children's laughter following behind him. Her heart fluttered as she heard these sounds and with a simple note on the gambeson, she left it there, tucked and ready to be sent back to Arya.

Aridius' Auraweave Gloves
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
A sept had passed since she received the commission and now she had finally received the items she needed. She smiled warmly, the peace of her work being a welcome one. Taking the fabrics and measurements she looked over her station. She hummed, taking a drawing journal and sketching out the gloves she planned to make, the measurements and any nooks and additives to the notes. This was a simple task, but she wanted to be sure the gloves would be perfect for the man. She gathered up silk and thread, taking a moment to think it over as she looked over all the fabrics. Lillium began to mark onto the fabric in a washable carbon, making sure these markings wouldn't be permanent on the delicate fabric. This didn't take too long, but she wanted to be sure they were precise, being sure to measure the outer shell's fabric of auraweave just that bit larger to fill in the lining.

Once confident enough, she took the fabric, cutting out the pieces she needed and singing the edges so they would never fray. This was done to keep the fabric as pristine as it possibly could be, no blemish or damage to be seen. Using rather thin needles she pinned the auraweave together, setting the delicate gloves casing aside to cut the shape out of the silk, doing much of the same for its edges. The motherly woman singed the sides, allowing for the edges to keep pristine and being sure not to burn the fabric itself. Once she had both halves, she began to sew, shell to shell and lining to lining. It was to be done perfectly and with no mistake, should the glove's fabric simply bunch up instead. Her hand was slow and methodical, almost like a symphony of its own as it worked through the fabric, being sure not to tear through the delicate threads.

One the shell and the lining had been sewn together, it was time to connect the two pieces. She inverted the two and began to sew them together at the hem. This was done so no edges may be seen from both the inside and outside. As the hem neared completion, another inversion was done in order to have the gloves the right way around. Hosting only a simple hole where the inversion had occurred, this would be the only visible stitch. Sewing it shut, the garment was finally done and the gentle engraving of the white lily was done within the interior lining. The black silky fabric of the gloves pristine as the garment was finally completed. With a simple brush and puff of air, all lose strands were lost and the gloves were now safely packaged for their delivery. Lillium smiled once her work was done, it brought a peace to her that no other could, and for this she was grateful.

Seraphina's Striped Antelope Cloaks
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
Lillium took up the hides and pelts she was given by Seraphina, a smile on her face as she was able to get back to work so soon. She hummed along, the puppy now becoming a new member to the company as he waddled about. With a joyous smile she went up the stairs, waiting for the little puppy to follow along, chuckling as she'd watch her stumble on a step of two. Setting the bed up once more she sat down at her desk with her puppy nearby. She laid down the pelt,s making sure they were clean and groomed for the work ahead. She hummed now, looking between the fur for blemishes and deformities. Satisfied with the pelts, she started her work.

She began measuring on paper, marking out cloaks of varying sizes and seeing which would be most effective. Knowing the workers of the Spirit Tree were not too tall, she knew she didn't need to make them overly large, at least not the winged ones. She continued calculating and measuring out the cloaks, making the ones without the slits able to be used by average sized folk. This was a long process as there were quite a few to go through. She walked up to the pelts now, marking down all the measurements and sizing the pelts to the measurements she had on paper. Things were going smoothly so far and she would take a bolt of cotton to line the inside of these cloaks. They'd help with comfort and temperature.

The then began to cut through the pelts, making sure the sizes were proper for who would use them. Starting with the smaller cloaks first, these would be specially tailored for the winged women of the Spirit Tree. She took the pieces, setting them against each other and pinning them all together. She then cut out the same sizes in the cotton fabric, inverting it all and layering them against each other to sew it properly. This way, she could hide the unsightly stitches and make a beautiful cloak for the women to use. She began to sew and stitch the hem of the cloaks, singing the hem to prevent any fraying in the future. This could easily take hours upon hours of work, as many had to be done for this order, but she was determined to continue. Her focus had tunneled on the task, completely ignoring everything around her. This was not uncommon as she made sure every stitch was perfectly placed. Once most of the cloak was done, she would invert it and sew the final hole shut, layering it over to properly look over it. The first was finally mostly done.

She then cut holes in the back of the cloaks, allowing for the varied wings of the Ascended to peer through without exposing them too much to the cold air. She hemmed and sewed the edged shut to prevent any fraying or breaking in the area. It was stitched properly to prevent any tearing in the future as well. It would be made durable and comfortable for the use of wings.

Seraphina's White Stag Cloak
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png

Lillium smiled as Seraphina left the company building, and after clearing the orders with Vultog, she wandered to the back of the workshop. She made her way up the stairs to the tailory station, humming along as the puppy had been bouncing around the back of the building. Thankfully she had Seraphina's basic measurements for this, it was simple enough. She only really needed her shoulders and height at most, and with such a delicate hide, she would do her best with it. She laid it out, taking the time to pluck out any imperfections between the fur of the hide, tilting her head to get a better look. Her glasses gently drooping down every now and then as she pushed them back up to see properly. After this was done, would begin her work.

She began to mark out the fabric, setting pins along the hide as she would measure the soft cotton against the hide to cut it perfectly against each other. She then cut through both fabrics together. She stood back, looking over the fabrics and inverting them before re-pinning them. This was a simple process, but the hide made it difficult. She persisted, though, taking the time to measure out the hood that would go with it as well. She did the same there, inverting the fabrics once they were cut. Layering them over each other she pinned it along the hemline.

She then finally began to sew, humming softly as she hemmed along the hide and fabric, connecting the two pieces with finality. It was to be a permanent thing, and the hope was it would last her a lifetime. She then made sure to cut the slits for the wings as well, hemming along the holes to prevent fraying in the area. She singed the hemline to prevent any possible fraying, as that would be the most active area to affect. The hood was then finally attached to the rest of the cloak before it was inverted once more and the hole at the bottom sealed off properly to produce the lovely new cloak. It would keep the beautiful Fey warm and protect her from the prying eyes of mages. This was something that satisfied Lillium, as she felt happy with the product at last.

Quince's Armor Set
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
Lillium wandered to the workshop, the dopey hyperactive dog behind her. She laughed as she watched the large fluffy dog bounce around behind her. She had her arms full this time around, Archontas being close by for his half of the work. She took everything upstairs, humming along as she set everything down. Two hides and a gambeson. She also had a chainmail haubrek in the mix, letting out a sigh. It was going to be a long day, but it would be worthwhile. She looked over the gambeson, then the hides, measuring the hides against the fabric. She let out a thoughtful hum, before she sat down to work.

She began to measure out the hides against the gambeson, allowing the hide to rest and bend over the gambeson. She took this time to investigate the hides for any imperfections, satisfied with the quality of the hide or moving it a bit to avoid a puncture or lump. She continued to measure it, soon after starting to cut out the shapes she needed. She did the same for the Fim Shark hide, humming now. She now had layers of Kravera and Fim Shark to work with, layering it to the gambeson and loosening any stitches she needed in order to re-attach the hides against it. This was a tricky process as the hides itself were tougher than simple gambeson, essentially marking out a layer of leather armor over it. This was only emphasized when Lilly began to sew into it to create a proper pattern and avoid any uncomfortable shifting of the fabric. It took quite a bit of time to work this out, but eventually she was able to. The gambeson was finally complete, as the garment itself didn't require too much modification, only extra padding.

She then took the chainmail, gambeson and coat to Archontas, calling out to the man as she always did. "Archi! I need you at the forge, darling!" And with a smile he responded. "Aye? What do you need?" "Just the plating for the armor, and if you could help me with the chainmail? I've never worked with chainmail." She gave a guilty smile as they both wandered to the smithy, the dog close behind. They continued their idle chatter as she walked along, eventually reaching his forge as she set everything down where she needed him to. "Do you mind studding the armor too, just so the hide stays put?" "Aye."

Soon enough, he lit his forge and work would begin. It easily took half an hour, maybe an hour or more to heat up the forge proper, at least enough to work the steel desired. Lillium simply sat now, watching the man work. Archontas began by heating up the ingots he had laying around, letting the metal glow brighter and brighter. Though, just before the metal itself would simply melt, he pulled it out and began to hammer away. Strike by strike he shaped the Einarian Steel, it's swirling patterns bending and smoothing out with the shapes. Eventually, the first piece was made, a simple paundron, before he began the process again. This resulted in the pauldrons, vambraces, and chestplates. This took hours upon hours to work, but the work was satisfying.

Lillium had dragged over a mannequin he held in his forge, layering the gambeson over the figure as Archontas would then payer the plate over the gambeson. The two worked together to stud, clip and attach the pieces of armor onto the gambeson, making one large piece. The chainmail was nestled nicely under the plate, making quite the strong piece of armor. With a bright smile, she looked to Archontas, holding up the coat as she would mark out where to make the clips and buttons. This would allow Quince to attach and detach the coat whenever she wished it. With this, the armor was done and the piece was complete. A complex piece of armor that was not only flexible, but durable and resistant to quite a bit. It would protect the woman and last her for time to come.

Ciyera's Mantle of the Autumn Wind
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
Lillium had been recovering from her recent birth when she got the order, looking over the materials and the design scripted onto the parchment. She took some time looking it over, feeling rather sore still, but she pushed on. Dragging everything with her to the bedroom where the crib rested beside her, she began to set everything in it's place. She dragged down the mannequin from the attic and brought it into the room with her. She looked over the parchment once more. A complicated order indeed, and from the Queen no less. It seems the growing complexity of orders would be something she would have to get used to, but she didn't mind it. She never felt troubled by other's wishes, and so she began.

Taking the main gambeson, she set that on the mannequin as she began to think things over. She started measuring out the cloak onto the Sandborn dragon hide, marking it in washable charcoal. This was a familiar process to her, and it calmed her each time. She took the time to measure out the white stag pelt, as well, making sure it would fit against the gambeson. She sat back, glancing to her baby as she seemed thoughtful. She felt comfort in the little one's company. Lillium then began to pin the pelt onto the gambeson, looking through the hemming to quickly undo it and stitch the stag against the gambeson itself. This, at least, completed the first part of the complex design. She might as well have gotten that through as she wanted to focus on the main piece.

With a heavy breath she stood, leaning over the hide and looking it over. She copied the same measurements onto the auraweave and then the Kravera hide. Her brow knit as she looked to the needle Archontas had gifted her. It would certainly be put to the test today, but she knew she'd be able to manage through it. With a smile she then began. She cut through the hides first. These would be the most complex of the three fabrics. Struggling to cut through the thick hides, she stopped every now and then to regain her strength and comfort the babe in the room with her. Halfway through she simply slumped over the hides, scissors in hand as she called in Azuran. The man lumbered in and with a roll of his eyes would cut through the hide for her. He was much stronger than she was, after all.

As the man would leave, he kissed the top of her head with a chuckle, reaching over to take the babe, as it was his turn to watch him. Lillium then, able to focus solely only on the hide began to mark out the pattern of the embroidery upon it's surface. Taking up the bundle of leaves, she looked them over. She smiled, starting to pin them against the hide and embroider them onto the cloak, making sure they wouldn't simply fall off or be easily torn. She hummed now as she worked, taking perhaps a few hours to place it's unique pattern onto the cloak itself. Once finished, she lifted the garment, looking it over once, twice, and three times over to be sure it was exact. She set it aside, starting to cut through the auraweave with it's unique swirling patterns. The bright colors and glittering images disorienting for a bit, before she got the hang of it and continued to push through, cutting the delicate fabric. Once satisfied, she sewed the halves together and inverted the cloak and lining, stitching them together to form an invisible hem.

This took quite some time, as the hides did not make it easy for her, even with this magical needle of hers. It was satisfying none the less. She hummed and sang, listening to the pitter patter of footsteps outside the door trying to listen. She smiled as she worked, inverting the piece through the small hole and finally stitching that shut. She then pinned it against the gambeson now, looking it over with a pleased smile. Tilting her head she now gathered the phoenix feathers and began to rest it against the top of the cloak against the gambeson. She began to stitch them in, piercing through the bottom of the feathers in order to have them remain sturdy against the hide.

Once satisfied with this, she knelt before the gambeson, tracing her hands down the sleeves. She settled at the cuffs, looking to the stones she was given. She a curt little nod she crushed the stones and formed them into small pearls. Some, she had to use the forge in order to head into glass orbs, but she took her time with this now. She took the beads and pearls made of Suntstone and Lightning glass and began to embroider them into the cuffs. The needle pierced even through these solid pieces of stone with ease, making it simple for her to simply attach them onto the cuffs in their varying pattern, making a beautiful display that shimmered and glowed in the light.

She then stood, looking over the piece she had finished. This had taken her from morning until dusk, but.. She didn't mind it. Not at all. She smiled, looking over what she considered a true masterpiece. Something that would serve the Queen well and would hopefully live up to her titles.

Arya's Belt of Many Pockets
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
The kind woman looked over the order thoughtfully. She let out a soft breath as she looked over the pelt for the craft. There was a lot going through her mind, but this was something she promised her and she would not go against her word. She gathered the hide, offering Azuran a kiss to the cheek as he leaned back in the seat with the newborn baby. Taking the Samburru pelt, she set it on the ground, staying within the room with Azuran. Lillium combed through the fur, making sure that the pelt was thoroughly cleaned. She then looked to the diagram given, marking out the measurements and nodding idly to herself.

She marked out several strips, along with the long strip for the belt. She looked it over once, twice over. Lillium then began to cut the pieces, along with panels for larger pieces for the strips to lay against. She took all the pieces, layering them over the other as she pinned them together as they fell into place. Letting out a soft hum she tilted her head. She then sat up, glancing to her husband with the sleeping baby. Lillium couldn't help but smile as she felt some motivation to keep going. She took up her needle now, looking over the multiple pieces.

She began with sewing the belt itself, hemming the two pieces that would form the long piece. The needle made it easy as the small stitches would help hold the belt for a long time to come. As the belt is inverted, she would then stitch along the hemming once more, to prevent the belt from wiggling around. She would stitch around where the gems were to be placed, allowing for comfortable pockets. She added straps to the areas, allowing for the gems to be removed and placed into their rightful spots. She turned the belt over in her hands, looking to make sure everything was right. She then set that aside for the time being as she would take up the next piece.

Starting by sewing the panels for the tassets, she formed larger panels that would rest at the hips. With a small breath, she layered the other strips over the panels and began to sew them down, adding a bit of toughness to the panels themselves. She then gathered studs from when she needed to craft gambesons with Archontas, using these to pin down the panels completely down. This was all she really needed to then add straps to the belt itself, allowing these tassets to be removable.

She then put it all into one piece, looking over the newly crafted fauld skirt. She ran her hand over the belt and gave a small nod, moving to push herself off the ground and set the craft on her desk.

Seraphina's Sagesilk Cloak
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
Lillium seemed a bit anxious this time around. She was given a rather luxurious fabric with even more to work with. She liked Seraphina, and seeing what she had to work with now, only made her anxious to make sure everything was absolutely perfect. She took the fabric, setting it over the desk and taking her book to look over the design. Simple enough in theory, but the materials made it a sight to behold. She marked all the measurements, her brow knit, knowing she had a few more features than the average person, being a Fey with wings and all. Regardless, this would not be difficult, as she's done similar crafts many times before.

She began by cutting out every panel she needed for the cloak, looking through the design to be sure she had every piece right. Her hands running smoothly through the fabric itself. The soft silk made it easy to cut through. She set every panel aside, setting it up upon the table to begin pinning it with rather thin needles. These thin needles helped avoid any small unsightly holes from forming on the fabric. Smoothening out the fabric against the table, she kept the hood detached from the main piece for now. Her eyes narrowed slightly as she took in a deep breath.

She began to sew, the distance between each stitch minimal, in order to maximize it's durability for the future. She made sure not to bunch up any of the fabric while she connected the fabric. Afterwards, she turned over the edges of the fabric over, curling them over the stitching to create a perfect hem. This would prevent the fabric from fraying, keeping it durable. She repeated this on the hood as well, making sure the stitching was tight and following exactly on the line, refusing any crooked stitch. She then attached the hood to the main piece, being very careful with the curve of the cloak. Her stitching was slow and methodical, this easily taking up most of the day. This wasn't something she could risk damaging.

She now took up the spool of familiar thread, looking over the colorful pattern given to her. Her head tilted as she took a breath. She settled the tambour frame against the fabric, having marked out the piece that would appear on the back in a washable charcoal. She had to start on the next day, as the sewing ate up most of the first day. As she sat down in the morning, she smiled softly, feeling much more comfortable that day. She pinned a stabilizer fabric on the interior of the cloak, before she began to stitch. Stitch by stitch a picture began to spring to life, the auraweave thread making it look as though the picture was alive against the wonderful silk. Hours upon hours of work passed by and soon, an elegant and extremely detailed picture had formed, the sigil of Mother Arvora. The branches looked like they swayed and the leaves as though they moved with the wind, the picture had truly come to life in a wonderful display.

Content now, she cut the excess stabilizer from the interior, setting the cloak against a mannequin to begin the next step. She had been given a basket full of beautiful flowers. No matter what damage came to these blossoms, they would never wilt or be damaged. She seemed pleased, placing the larger flowers in the center of the edge of the cloak where she would make it like a garden sprung from it's edge. The flowers were placed thoughtfully along the collar of the cloak, where the brooch was placed to connect the piece into one. Lillium pinned the flowers and sewed them down with a sturdier thread to keep them in place, singing all the while. Soon, the bottom edge of the cloak and the collar were hugged by beautiful flowers, giving color to the green sagesilk.

The final edit she would make to this cloak was to cut holes in the back for Seraphina's wings, being mindful not to disturb the embroidery that felt like it took a lifetime. She sewed the hems of the holes, making sure these slits would not cause any fraying for the future. It was simple, compared to the rest of the cloak, but she was pleased with the product she had made. A wonderful display to Lady Arvora and hopefully something Seraphina would wear proudly.

Benjamin's Auraweave Gloves
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
Lillium took up the first of many rolls of auraweave she was given. She wandered to the workshop where the pile had been set. Extending out the fabric, she looked it over, seeing there was no pattern to this one, so it was likely the easiest to work on. She looked to the measurements on the scroll, running her fingers over the paper as she let out a soft breath. With a soft nod she began to plan out the measurements onto the fabric itself, copying them on another sheet of silk as well. Her hand was delicate as she worked the familiar silk, humming softly as she worked.

She then took a pair of heated scissors to begin to cut, trying to avoid fraying, but not hot enough it would simply burn the fabric. She cut the auraweave and silk in their distinctive patterns and pinned them together by the hem. It was simple work, but she did what she could. Though, she decided to unpin the fabrics and rested the auraweave on the correct side against the tambour, using a stabilizer behind it. She began to work on the embroidery, stitching in the Merrigold sigil onto it's back. Using thread also made of the special fabric, she stitched the sigil with diligence. The blue sigil stood out against the fabric now, as she held it against the scroll to be sure the symbols were correct. She then took the time to embroider the name 'Benjamin' along the side in elegant script.

Finally, she took the two halves, pinning them together. Taking this time she trimmed the stabilizing fabric, making sure it would not be uncomfortable against his hands when in use. She began to sew now, careful with the curves of the fabric at the fingers and nooks. She made sure not to bunch the fabrics and make the stitching quite small and durable. They were likely to be casting gloves, so they'd need to last. With a satisfied smile she inverted them, stitching the final hole and setting them within a box to pack. She labeled them for Cecilia to recognize them.

Irene's Aurweave Gloves
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
Taking up the next spool of thread and bolt of fabric, she began her work. She looked to the scroll once more, idly walking through the workshop as she read off the scroll. She laid down the fabric with it's silk, flattening it against the smooth surface. She began to mark down the size and measurement of the hands, marking down the points of importance. She seemed calm and placid, now seeing how the fabric shifted with her reactions. The black surface now shifted to a warm yellow with her joy, leaving her to raise her brows and let out a soft sigh.

She now began to cut, once more using the heated scissors to cut the fabrics without fraying. She smiled, taking up the auraweave halves and setting them in the tambour once more with the stabilizer fabric. Pinning everything together, she began to embroider. As she began to stitch the Merrigold sigil onto it's surface, the color would shift to adjust against the now yellow fabric. She knit her brow with another soft sigh, the fabric now turning purple. There was a slight twitch to the brow as she couldn't help but grow frustrated and amused all the same. She continued until the sigil was properly embroidered, likely taking quite a few hours to work. Afterwards, she embroidered the name 'Irene' upon the side of the glove in gold.

She then took up the two halves of the gloves, her nerves relaxing as she worked to pin and stitch together the two halves in order to properly shape the gloves. With a soft hum she simply waited as the fabric shifted back to it's original black color. She stitched around the curves and corners, making sure it would be a comfortable fit to use. She trimmed the stabilizer before inverting it and sealing off the gloves.

Irene's Auraweave Cloak
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
Taking up the third bolt of fabric, she hummed and set down the patterned auraweave. This one being a lovely green with flowing flowers. As she moved the fabric she looked to see the petals falling off of it and disappearing, seeming content. She would set the fabric flat down on the table, looking it over as she reference the scroll once more. She then beagn to measure out all the pieces; two for the backing, two for the hood. She glanced downwards, having left the door open to find the little foxes playing with the end of her dress. She smiled, but sat to work.

She began to cut the pieces out, using the heated scissors as she did. She would pin the pieces once they were cut out, allowing it to curl and hug the body, the petals bursting from the fabric as she cut it. She would have to be slow as she cut, but it was necessary. Once all the pieces were cut and pinned, she set them against the mannequin to be sure everything was in order. With a soft pleased nod, she'd take it up once more and move it to the table.

Lillium then began to sew as the foxes played at her feet. She attached the pieces together first, making one large piece as the hood pieces were attached to one another and the cloak body attached to themselves. She then began to sew the hemline on both of these pieces, taking the time to curl the edge of the hem into it's shape and prevent any future fraying. Afterwards, she attached the hood to the body of the cloak, looking it over. She brushed off any loose strands of thread, watching the petals burst from the flowing fabric.

Maurice's Auraweave Gloves
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
As the next day loomed over, Lilly looked over the scroll as she wandered to the workshop, foxes and dog in tow. Nearly tripping on the stairs as she focused on what was on the parchment. Collecting herself and brushing down her skirt, she stepped inside and would gather up the auraweave given to her. She knit her brow, looking at the scroll once more. She measured out the gloves onto the silk and auraweave, using a washable charcoal. She hummed softly now, juggling between the numerous pets.

She began to cut soon enough, using the heated scissors to prevent frays and tears. She was careful in this process, expecting the auraweave to waver or change. She cut out all four pieces, smiling softly as the silk itself didn't seem to shift. She pinned everything together, preparing the gloves for the embroidery. This is where her concern came in. She took in a breath and set the stabilizer against the fabric in the tambour. She then used auraweave to embroider, being careful to allow enough thread to shift and adjust. This took well over an hour or more. Every so often she'd use a drop of liquid mana to be sure it would shift into the right sigil, sighing softly as this only grew more tedious. It took it's time, but it eventually worked.

Finally she began to sew the pieces together, stitching carefully and thoughtfully. She made sure it was sturdy and wearable all the same. She trimmed off the stabilizer and situated it properly before inverting it and sealing off the edge. She hummed along now, going to wrap these up with their tag. Lillium then looked over to the mountain of fabric she had left; the smile having an uncertain meaning to them.

Maurice's Medical Satchel
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
Lillium now took up a bolt of leather and the bolt of Auraweave, looking to the scroll for reference to how big it should be. She began measuring out all the panel onto the leather, having scribbled down measurements onto a blank sheet. She marked down somewhere along the lines of four to six pieces, making sure they'd be the right size for what was asked for. She then measured and marked the auraweave with care, looking to the leather marks to be sure they'd fit within the planned area. As she worked and focused on the measurements, the little sporeling would watch from a shelf above her, giving a curious gaze.

She then began to cut out all the pieces, layering them out side by side and marking them with a washable charcoal over where they'd sit. She did the same for the auraweave, using heated scissors for the delicate fabric. She took up the auraweave, setting it against the tambour with the stabilizer. This seemed like an all to familiar process now, as she gently sketched out the pattern. She began to embroider the sigil onto the auraweave, watching as the threads would turn white as she'd stitch. This took much longer than the others, as it was a larger scale embroidery, but she seemed happy to work.

Finally, she separated the tambour from the fabric, trimming the stabilizer and pinning the auraweave pieces together. She would start to sew the leather, making sure it was correct before attaching the auraweave to it. She took her time, as she needed her special needle to stitch through the thick fabric. Once she was done, she began to attach the auraweave, being rather careful with it, as she didn't want it to tear. She inverted it and settled it within the satchel, looking over the flap to be sure that was lined properly and would seal without tearing. A soft pleased hum escaped her as she finished her work by adding the button to seal it.

Melanie's Wyvern Plushie
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
Lilly seemed to smile with the next item on the list, taking a seat as she looked it over. She began to draw out and scheme the technical side of the craft, humming softly as the foxes and dog slept beside her. She rested her head in her hand, looking over the fabric once more. It seemed to be a solid white now with little bits of snow disappearing off it. She smiled, starting to mark out all the technical pieces that would go into it. It took quite a while, as a wyvern wasn't quite easy to calculate for.

She then began to cut, taking out numerous pieces that she was then going to use. She pinned them all together, looking more like an amalgamation with it being inverted. She prepared the wings separately, making sure the ends would have their signature speckle of snow falling. She left a pocket open for the stuffing to be put in once she would sew.

And sew she did, taking a few hours just to get it right and make sure it would last. This would see wear and tear if it was for a child, after all, so she wanted it to last her as long as it could. She would embroider in the eyes, just so they didn't risk simply falling off with time. Once the entirety of the interior was done, she'd invert it and begin to stuff it with bundles of cotton and wool, making sure it was soft and plush. She couldn't help but smile as she looked at it, holding it up as she remembered the one she had for Rowan. She then attached the wings, making sure they'd stay stable upon the back of the little wyvern. She set it down upon the table, next to the finished crafts and with a simple little tag, she'd write the name 'Melanie'

Melanie's Auraweave Gloves
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
She looked to the scroll as another day rolled by. Sitting at her desk, she toyed with the edge of the fabric as she read the details of the pair of gloves. She smiled, seeing the measurements and who it was for. She always had a soft spot for children and this only made her happy to see. The little sporeling she had been caring for finally brave enough to stay in the room with her, close enough he sat upon the parchment. With a little tap to his cap she smiled, moving over to start pressing down the measurement and size upon the auraweave and silk. She began to hum softly, this time around accompanied by the large Grey Wolf known as Sif. He quietly laid behind her, likely wanting to get away from the kids for the day.

She took up the scissors, heating them up with a small flame she kept well away from the fabric. Wandering over to the fabric once more, she began to cut, being careful with the pieces. Once all the pieces were cut out, she took up a small tambour to work with, setting the auraweave on it with the stabilizing fabric. She settled comfortably in the chair, leaning back as she began to stitch the now familiar sigil onto the back of the glove, using a small vial of liquid mana to make sure the fabric reacted properly to the magic. She took hours to get it just right, being sure no loose threads were there as she hummed. Plucking the fabric from the tambour, she adjusted it in order to embroider the name upon it's side in golden thread, the name of 'Melanie Merrigold' upon it's side. Once this was done, she trimmed the stabilizer, going to pin the pieces together.

Setting the silk with the auraweave, she began to stitch, making sure to have a tight stitch. A child's small hands were likely to get her into much trouble, so she was sure to avoid any ripping at the seams. She finally inverted the pieces, stitching the final hole along with giving a final stabilizing stitch at the hemline. With a warm smile she looked to the small pair of gloves, setting them carefully down to deliver them. Packaged up next to the plushie, she bundled them up together.

Cyril's Auraweave Gloves
d8zce3t-afc6a9e4-9477-4f07-83dd-75d71b4fc806.png
Lillium took a breath as she looked to the scroll once more, watching the sporeling try to read what was on the page. Amused, she wouldn't disturb the page, looking to the final product she had to make. She tilted her head, looking at the simplicity of this order. Regardless, she took up the fabric, looking at the simple pattern it had. She hummed now, starting to measure out the shape of the gloves. She took up the silk to line it, measuring out the same size as well. Unlike the others, she took it upon herself to gather bits of leather as well, marking out smaller patches for these gloves.

She began to cut, the leather first, as it was less likely to fray and the silk and auraweave soon after with the heated scissors. She began to pin and make her final adjustments, making sure all would sit properly together. With a pleased hum she took up the leather bits, pinning them along the gloves in spots she knew most of the wear and tear would come. She assumed these would be for quite an active mage, and it would be best to avoid damage to something so valuable. She glanced over to the sporeling, as if looking for his approval on the craft, but.. little response came. With a small chuckle and a smile she continued on.

Taking the pieces that were pinned up, she began to sew, stitching the lining with it's exterior and then pinning up the reinforcement of the leather. While it was reinforced, it was also a thin enough leather to allow it to be flexible and comfortable to use. She continued to sew until all she had to do was invert it and stitch along the hem to be sure it was secure. She looked over these gloves with a small sense of curiosity, looking to the simple craft, yet.. knowing it likely meant much more. She carefully wrapped these up, being sure to set it in it's own little bundle.
