This stuff is what i am using to make a new quiver. the wide piece is the quiver itself. The long one is the "belt," or at least it will be when i hem it and add two of the metal rings to one end. The drawstring is to put at the top of the quiver so i can keep it shut when i need it tight around the arrows poking out. If i make it like that, i can avoid arrow rattle. And in case you're wondering, the drawstring came from my backpack, where it is useless (until i took it off and added it here, at least). I picked this camouflage fabric 'cause if i was in the woods it would blend in, and its strong enough to hold my arrows.
See this one? This is my first and only orange arrow before getting the other Fire Arrows. This particular arrow is called Smaug, named after the dragon from THE HOBBIT. It's my favorite arrow despite the fact that it only has two feathers (the other one ripped clean off).
My goal is to work myself up with my strength and my aim enough so that in a some years when I get stronger and my recurve is considered too easy, I'll be strong enough to use a longbow! I've no idea when that will be, but I refuse to give up on it. IT WILL HAPPEN! I WILL USE A LONGBOW AND PERFECT MY AIM IF IT'S THE LAST THING I DO! :)
In other blog news, I have completed the drawing of dwarves Fili and Kili. As soon as I can wrench myself off of Facebook I'm going to draw the next two: Dwalin and Balin. After that, THEN it gets even trickier (I love it!).
