My leather work is mostly in brain tanned buckskin. I made this shirt using 5 antelope skins that I tanned. the hair trim is buffalo and my step daughters hair that she insisted I use.

Moccasins are brain tanned deer with buffalo rawhide soles.

Here is a purse I just finished for my wife. It is my largest project yet. You can't really tell from the pics, but I lined it with a really soft black pig skin. Looks a lot better than just having the inside ruff thick leather.

Don't concentrate so hard on making a living, that you forget to make a life!
All yall's stuff looks great. Here's my story.
So I had purchased a new pistol and there were no holsters on the market for it yet.
I decided "Hey I can make one"
So off to Tandy I drove and bought what I thought would be needed and back home to start making a holster I went.
I had watched some videos and read some post so I started with a template I made and went from there.
Here is the first holster I made and the first leather work I ever did:
So it came out a little rough and I knew I could do better so back to the interwebs to do more research and then back to Tandy for more tools and stuffs...
This is the second holster I made about a week or so after the first:
Turned out much better. I didn't make anything else for a while since I moved not long after making the second holster.
Then I bought a NAA .22 mag pistol and knowing I would carry it everywhere had to make a holster for it.
Got out the supplies and made my 3rd holster which I carry everyday and it is still going strong:
Then the Mother-in-law to be got one of the NAAs since she liked mine and I had to make her one too:
And they look like twins from different planets:
And then I bought a CS Rifleman's Hawk and it needed a mask so then I made this guy:
And to date that is all of my leather working except for some strops I am working on and helping out a friend on one of his projects.
I have a bunch of leather left and still need to make a sheath for a CS Bowie Bushman and maybe a sheath for my Piggyback.
I have some pistol holsters I need to make one day but that is further down the list.

Nice work on the purse bro.
The purse look great Sherlockian. I'm sure your wife will enjoy it for years to come. My wife grabbed the patterns for one a while back, then grabbed some lining material and the leather she wants to make it from. She still hasn't fully decided on exactly what she wants, as she's rather picky when it comes to her purses, and we always have way to many projects going at once. Once she finally decides on something, I'll get her started on it. That's how she is with a lot of different things though.
