I have been wanting to tapestry weave a roundel for years. Weaving a circle is one of the most difficult tapestry weaving techniques and it has taken me a while to build up to attempting a roundel. I have woven this roundel using my SCA heraldry.
I am making this to line the Drachenwald Royal Artisan Collar, so it can be pinned to costumes and so as not to chafe if worn next to the skin.This is based on a piece of damask I studied at the Clothworker's Centre London.
