A Tabard Makes A Great Fiber Art Surface

TabardSampleAFA challenges everyone to make and decorate a tabard. Tabards have been worn for centuries; the dictionary defines it as a coarse sleeveless garment worn as the outer dress of medieval peasants and clerics, or worn as a surcoat over armor. These simple garments make a fine surface for all sorts of fiber arts. Make one today and you’ll have a wonderful garment to wear to all the AFA gallery and social events. See the pattern below.
