Greetings all

I've volunteered to work a piece for the current Queen of Lochac (SCA - Australia) and her persona is 15th Century Spanish.

It's been mentioned that she would like a Coifa, worked in bright colours.  Now I have no problems with this, but have not been able to find any examples of these as embroidered pieces - not even going to mention that I have no pattern to even make the thing!

Can somebody who has some more experince with this particular period of embroidery give me some pointers?

The other option that I thought of myself for her was an embroidered book cover (which I can do in the rich, bright colours with pomegranates that she likes).
