Post Your Leather Work
I have recently started making knife sheaths, as you see from my recent post. I am not sure what other possabilities are out there for leather work other than wallets, pouches, book cover and the typical stuff you see in kits etc. I would like to see how creative and what types of things can be done with leather. Please post some of your leather work. We all post our sheaths and I like seeing those too, but would like to see what else is out there.
kool thread idea, willpost some pics if i can get my camera to work....
I recently made this simple money clip-thingy. For as long as I can remember I've been using just a binder clip, but recently my debit card seemed to be wearing out sooner than they should, so I made this and only keep my debit card in there, the cash and license clip to the back. The binder clip just goes thru a slit in the bottom of the leather.
This bag is pretty typical of what I produce for the re-enactors I serve. This is a 18th century shot pouch reproduction of an original. I also do knife sheaths and odds and ends. Also, forging and horn work.
Made this at the Professor's meet. I'm pretty happy with it for a first ever attempt.
Few things I have made. Guitar Strap, Flasks, Knife sheath, belt pouch for LEO buddy of mine and have really been working on holsters.Those pics later.
I like those flasks, saw the tutorial, don't look easy.

Here's my design for sheaths. One member aptly named it the "dangle with the angle" its called sword carry and is drawn cross body on my left, like a sword. Works for me as I like to keep my right side free from clutter.
