Chatelaine Made From Japanese Braiding

I've been trying to think of good uses for the Japanese braiding I've been working on. So today I thought it might make a great chatelaine to wear around my neck and carry sewing supplies like scissors, pins, needles and thimbles. In the Victorian days before pockets, women kept their tools close at hand by hanging them from little chains. I just bought some green and gold pearl cotton to make it out of since the SCA Gyldenholt colors are green and gold. It is nice being able to make things in the baronial colors. If you don't know what the SCA is visit

Update: Guess what? Gyldenholt's colors are blue and gold. D'oh.
