Fringed hunting pouch...
« on: October 11, 2019, 12:29:05 AM »
Here's a little bag I made up. I just sort of winged it, not really following any particular design. I used some mountain goat leather for most of it, pillow tick for the lining, linen thread, and an old belt for the strap. I do need to make a buckle, though, and add on a length of strap to extend it a touch.

I like it Looper! I like to dye my thread to match. Kind of instant aging. But thatís just me. Others feel differently. Looks super.

I like the feel of that one Cheney.  So you are one of the multi-talented artists on these forums.  I am pretty much a one-trick-pony.  Keep it up.  :-)  God Bless,   Marc

Itís going good. Iíve had a few distractions with my elderly aunt and uncle and squeezing in some bow hunts, but Iím staying busy. Going to finish up a few more orders, and then get back to carving up some spec stuff. Iíve got a Berks County pattern Iím anxious to do as well as an early Transition. Iím doing that one in a nice piece of black walnut. Iím inletting a 38Ē D weight .58 cal in the Transitional. I may end up keeping it for myself. It oughta be an excellent hog thumper. Iím also working on some new patterns and building a custom Early Virginia for a customer.

Looper, do you have a website for your stock carving?  Iím starting to look for a stock for a winter project.

I absolutely love it. Would be a top companion for a fur trade era gun.
