    I made all of these sporrans in the last couple of years.

    Here is the sheath I made for a BushSword:


    Little neck pouch for a SAK and firestarting kit.

    A simple hip quiver.

    Thanks Jake, I appreciate the kind words. I do most of my decorative work with a free handed stitching groover. Just draw or transfer the artwork to the damp leather, and then this does the rest.


    Here is a link to the item I'm talking about:

    Hm, I've seen one of these before, just wasn't sure what it was used for. I'll look for a video or article maybe explaining a technique to using the tool. Thanks for the quick reply!

    Here is a shooting bag and patch knife I made. I distressed the leather to give a "20 seasons look. Everything is this picture is homemade.


    Leather Hill sytle quiver.


    Leather rifle case.


    Butt cuff for 2 xtra magazines for Ruger 10-22


    I make my own stuff because its cheaper and no one makes what I want.

    Hey all, I'm new to this forum, so I thought I might post on what I'm familiar with!
    I've been doing leatherwork for a little over a year now, starting with suede and other light leathers and moving into veg-tan leather about 6 months ago...

    Here is my throwing knife sheath:



    Here is my tomahawk sheath:


    Pretty amatuer compared to other people's work, but they are functional.

    Doesn't look amateur at all to me. I'd actually like to know how you did that stitching.

    Here's an example of the best stitching I can do, but I'd like to learn how you make it wrap around the edge of the sheath like you did.

    Default stitching

    It would be way easier to show than to describe.
    It is all one lenght of Waxed thread, it takes twice what you think you will need. I cheated and drilled the holes with a bit that was just bigger than the needle. Then I started at the top and stithched to the bottom, then came back in the opposite direction. That gave me the regular stitching. Then, starting at the top again, I came out the front of the top hole and took the needle around the side to the back and brought it back through the next hole. Like the wire on a spiral notebook. When I got to the bottom, I tied it off. Really simple to do, harder to describe. I am going to be making a sheath to hold my capper for my muzzleloader soon. If you want, I'll take pictures of the process and PM them to you. I don't want to hijack Sherlockinan's thread.

    Thank you. I'm glad that you like it.
