Finished the sewing block. Fun project, good use for scraps I had.
Bran. Picked up more than I needed, but had no idea how much to get. Got it at Central Market bulk. Looks slightly illegal doesn't it :).
Filling the bag. The period instructions say to do this on a tray and wear an apron. The bran clings to everything.
The full bag. Chip clip really comes in handy when taking pictures before sewing it shut :).
The bag attached to the brick.
Covering the brick. I used a silk brocade/twill. Upholstery skills would be very handy here.
And done. The period instructions say to not put bows and such as they will catch the thread, so I left it plain.
