Spending the month at the Connecticut Renaissance FaireConnecticut Renaissance Faire hanging out with Shakespeare Approves has made the choice of themes for this Thursday an easy one!
Though She Be But Little, She Is Fierce Patch
O, when she’s angry, she is keen and shrewd!
She was a vixen when she went to school;
And though she be but little, she is fierce.
This patch is easily our best selling Shakespeare design. People either seem to identify with the quote, or else they know somebody it embodies perfectly!
This sew-on patch is stitched in dark brown thread on unbleached cotton canvas and measures 3″ in diameter.
Henry V Tablet Messenger Bag
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game’s afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry, ‘God for Harry, England, and Saint George!’
The bag depicts a minimalist version of Tom Hiddleston’s Henry V, as portrayed in “The Hollow Crown”, and is stitched on off white cotton canvas with contrasting black strapping.
I love this design so much that this is actually my own laptop bag shown here. (My laptop is a Surface Pro 3, so it’s pretty small and fits perfectly in the tablet bags I make!)
Exit, Pursued by a Bear Bookmark
Possibly the best stage direction ever written comes from Shakespeare’s “A Winter’s Tale”. In Act II, Scene iii, the direction simply reads, “Exit, pursued by a bear”.
This bookmark is embroidered in dark brown thread on off white cotton canvas.
The great thing about our embroidered bookmarks — besides just being awesome bookmarks — is that are still fully funcional as sew-on patches, too! Use it to hold your place in your favorite novel, or sew it on a bag or jacket to show your literary loves to the world.
