A cope for the Priestess

Technique for ornamenting cope
There are amazing resources to be had at Value Village.
This fabric was once a full-length coat in synthetic suede - in a light ecru.
Being synthetic it  allowed me to avoid working on real skin which I have an aversion to.
It was also perfect to use fire-heated irons to burn symbols into the fabric  to embellish a cope for  The Priestess  - a technique that may well have been available to people in the age that she lived.
