Hmm, photos are dodgy, had to use the phone, but here's my take on an old Arran style pouch. (Needs a longer thong, this one broke lol.)
I had a few decorative (fake) turquoise rivets and the celtic knot thingy left from the last time I did leatherwork, so I bunged one of them on the front to tart it up a bit Cheesy and stuck a belt loop on the back. What do you think?





It opens up a lot better with a decent length thong on it Smiley It's now gone to a LARPer I know who fell in love with it just before Christmas. She was complaining about having nowhere in her costume to keep things without having to have a big bag.

Shame it was my last bit of vegtan, I like making this sort of thing.

Your purse/pouch is really neat.  I'd love to try to make one.  Can you tell us where you found the pattern/idea?  Any tips on sewing it?
Thanks!

Thank you Smiley

I got the idea from a bushcraft site, here - http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=65359 (pretty sure you don't have to sign up to read)

Basically though, it's one 'goggles' (or bra!) shaped piece and 2 triangular arcs. The pieces were all saddle stitched, ie 1 long bit of thread with a needle on each end, and each needle goes through each hole so you get a double stitch.

I added the belt loop for ease of use

Thanks!  I just couldn't figure out the shape of the side "pouches".  Wonder if my sewing machine can handle the thicker leather.  Guess we'll find out.  If the one I use everyday doesn't work, I have some old cast iron Singers that can sew through bone!  Now gotta figure out how to draft that pattern in the right size.
Cheers!
