I think it would be kinda neat to make a bag incorporating some things like the turtle shell, or skunk pelt, or the quills, but I'm really not sure how to go about doing that.

Any thoughts or ideas

That's pretty cool!

Personally I wouldn't recommend using the turtle shell-- I have one that broke being knocked off a chair (about 2 feet off the ground) so it wouldn't be very practical for a bag you plan on using.

The quills could be really cool, some Native Americans use them like beads to decorate things:

Oh pretty designs.
I'm actually sad to hear the turtle shells break so easily. There goes my hopes..oh well.
Anyway thanks for the ideas for using the quills.

wow, do these people state anywhere how they acquire all this stuff? I searched their website and was so surprised to see that they don't say that it's all legit,...
anyway, I would strongly suggest you get your hands on some porcupine quills before you buy them.. (I'm assuming you're planning to order online?) because I bought some before and the smell is putrid!! REALLY.. I could not handle how disgusting they smelled. But I don't know, maybe if they were out in the air (I bought them in a plastic sealed box) they might not smell anymore. But also, I don't know about making any kind of purse out of them becase the ones I had at least were SO sharp. and it really really hurt to get pricked by one.
Then again, the ones on the website look much larger than the ones I had... yet..these quills are meant to be a self defense tool, so they're probably all too sharp for a purse. ?? Just my 2 cents!
