Item details

Vegvísir (Icelandic for 'sign post') is an Icelandic Magical Stave intended to help the bearer find their way through rough weather - whether that be physical or metaphorical.

From the ancient manuscript it was copied from: "If this sign is carried, one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known."

You will receive a pdf of 4 different sizes (1.5 inch, 2.5 inch, 3.5 inch, and 5 inch).

Use it for hand embroidery, wood burning, wood carving, leather stamping, metal stamping, iron-on transfers, quilting, pottery and glass etching, decoupage, tattoo, or whatever your can think of!

Some ideas to get you started:
Make a patch to sew into travel clothes
Hand-tool a leather baggage tag
Wood burn or paint on a wooden nickel and carry in your pocket when away from home
Make a gift for someone going away to college
Perfect for someone going into the Military (especially the Navy or Coast Guard!)
Sew-up a bag - maybe for travel toiletries
Paint an ornament for a new boat or car

The photos are just to illustrate that this was initially designed for hand embroidery. The red on orange is the 1.5 inch size (I suggest single or 2-strand back stitch) and the black on white was the 3.5 inch (3-strand chain stitch). The largest size could be spectacular in satin stitch or couched cord and would be a stunning shoulder or messenger bag embellishment.
