New Pouch

Postby theowl » Mon Nov 18, 2019 11:07 pm

I liked the design I did for the pouch I made Taylor so much that I made it a standard offering on my website, and I made a slightly modified version for myself. I made mine out of dark brown bison with a button I carved out of some cocobolo scrap. The design on the flap is something I cobbled together out of a few different designs from here, Tolkien sketches, and stuff I thought flowed well.

Thanks! I've been toying with the design for a while. I think this is the 8 or 9th draft, but I'm very happy with this version.

Nice work, beautiful tooling :P

Yeah, I absolutely love this. On Instagram I believe you said you used a 5-ounce buffalo leather from Hide House, right? I'm surprised that it worked so well with a 5-ounce leather! Seems a little heavier than I would probably have thought to use for a pouch like this. It turned out just beautifully though!

It's relatively thick but still flexible. So it's easy to get it into the shape you want and supple enough to work well as a pouch, but overall it keeps it's shape. I'm a big fan of this leather, I recently redid my shoulder bag and it's my favorite bag so far.
