My darling SO is very crafty as well.  He hinted that he'd enjoy having people look at some of what he made, using skins and fur. 
The first is a fox fur quiver with crow feathers, the second is a leather (i think elkskin) gun cozy (because it has to be in a holster).
Please tell us what you think!  (I think he's so crafty!)

That quiver's pretty darn awesome -- did he bring the fox down himself (I'm guessing he's a hunter, but maybe not ...) or get the pelt elsewhere?

my sweetheart insisted that i correct the title of this post. it is not a gun cozy, it is a "shoot through pocket holster." the fox hide was a road kill victim and then it was brain tanned.

Wow... all natural all the way.... The quiver is amazingly beautiful. And *of course* it's a holster... only we silly girls would put a gun in a cozy! Wink

Hildare, that quiver is SWEET. That is trophy room material for sure.

I have one like it (with a quiver inside the fox pelt, to keep the arrows from poking through the fox), but mine has painted turkey feathers in a Tobacco Society bundle formation.
If he swaps out the crow feathers he can sell it (and get several hundred bucks for it) - but not with the crow feathers still on it. Silly law. Look for the all-black secondary wing (i.e. wing rounds) feathers from a peacock.

A braintanned fox done with the legs as the strap, that's *perfect*.

Is the braintanned fox, also smoked, or left unsmoked? The fur color looks pretty good, which is why I was asking. I thought that the smoke process generally discolored the fur.

... but does he get mad at you for calling a gun case a "cozy"? It sounds, effeminate. Not something you think of when you think "firepower". LOL. (just razzin ya)
