Today I want to share with you a few of my favorite things that help make my sewing and reenacting just a little bit easier. For the most part, these items are simple in nature, inexpensive and relatively easy to find. But don’t let their simplistic nature fool you, all these are immeasurable in their usefulness! I have also done my best to link each item mentioned. I hope you enjoy!

6. Shawl – I used this pattern.
As I mentioned above, none of these items are all that fancy. But I have found them to be true workhorses and my go to items. As you begin to build your own sewing and reenacting tool kits, take note of what works and doesn’t work. And while we always want to be as accurate as possible, sometimes a little modern cheat can make a difference between freezing or enjoying your event!
