    Pattern printed at 125% give you a pouch just big enough to fit a mini bic lighter vertically.

    Post some pictures if you make one! It's super quick and easy. I'm almost finished with mine from the pattern printed at 150%. It should be a good, useful size I think.

    IMG_5688.JPG Niffty project, Thanks. 30 minutes in the shop between shower and breakfast this morning with a scrap piece of black dyed moose hide and raw hide thong netted me this. It will hold a mini Bic, ferro rod, PJ cotton balls and birch bark for my grandson's fire kit, he EDCs a SAK Hiker for a striker.

    Well, I made the pouches on 125%.
    Messed up the first bit of leather by having the flap folded double when punching the hole. Made another one, only to sit there and wonder what I would use such a small pouch for?
    Result; I scrapped the whole thing.

    But thanks anyway for a fun exercise!

    Thanks for that! I have been waiting for just the right pattern for my Elk hide scraps. There’s another piece of that leather on the way to another member... hope he reads this post. :rolleyes:

    Big medicine fits in small pouches. ;) Mine (I don’t mind telling...) will have Baltic Amber from @Beach Hiker and a special coin. :)

    ... LOL... I was so excited by the pics I missed the link the first time through too. :4:

    Websites tend to disappear. Figured we needed to preserve this treasure.

    I actually do not have anything that I'd need and is small enough. Had hoped it would hold my flint&steel.
    I do not like to have something like this dangling around my neck and I guess I miss the connection to ancient people who used to do so for whatever reason.

    Understood, I don’t like neck danglers either. I plan to attach mine to my pack somewhere. Just sentimental items that would weigh nothing and be fun to have along.

    If I had 4 thumbs, I’d give it 4 thumbs up. That is a neat twist to a no-sew pouch.

    I've also made them by cutting a circle out of the hide, punch hole around the circumference , lace it up with a piece of leather string. Not as nice as yours though.

    I had to make one. Made from deer hide that I've had tanned over the years. The closure is an Elk tooth that I received in the traveling box of goodies (thank you @Sandcut ). It will hold flint and chert as part of my cooking kit I'm putting together.

    Like all good ideas, I clipped it to Evernote immediately. :)

    An all device cross platform 'notebook' application that allows super easy 'clipping' of PDFs, images, whole web pages, typed notes, etc... Once 'clipped' (or created) those notes are with you on each device that you have Evernote on. I use it for reciepts, business cards, recipes, PDF books (like Kepharts' classics), etc... There is also a 'scanner' application that will straighten and clean up any document that you 'scan' with your phone.

    There is a free version that only limits how much you can upload/month, but I use it for everything so I pay for it. It is brilliant.

    Back to the thread at hand...Took me about 10 min. to make one of these once I printed the template. I didn't use the same closure loop that everyone else seems to, but it's cute. Making the pattern much larger I can see these could be decent for a very quick pouch. I also think I threaded the thong starting with the wrong hole. I may restring it and see if mine looks closer to the others I've seen here in the thread.
