DIY: 1890s Fan Skirt Made Entirely From... Bed Sheets

My sewing adventures continue and this time I present you my latest project that I've been working on during the second half of this January. It is a late Victorian (around 1890s) fan skirt, but there's a twist: I made it entirely from second-hand bedsheets! So how did that happen?

Witcherbounding: Ursine Armour

Although CD Projekt Red, a Polish game developing and publishing company lately has been attracting most of the media attention due to an underwhelming (to put it mildly) release of "Cyberpunk 2077" game, they were also the ones to grace us with such games as "The Witcher" trilogy. Being a complete fan of the video game series, and currently playing the "Blood and Wine" expansion, I decided to pay an homage to "The Witcher III: Wild Hunt" and recreate Geralt's iconic armours, using the contents of my closet. As this winter we are blessed with copious amounts of snow (compared with the last one), I decided to start with Ursine armour that I strongly associate with Skellige Isles.
