Just finished this pistol bag
« on: August 05, 2019, 07:32:06 AM »
Over the weekend I finished this pistol bag for a friend of mine. He approached me last February about making him something to carry his hogleg in while hunting. He gave me some deer hide he had tanned which I was able to use some of as the fringe. The body of this bag is made from 2 ounce vegetable tanned cowhide to give the bag some strength and rigidity. I then covered it with 4 ounce elk hide to pretty it up some. The dark brown trim and lace is deer hide. I carved the buttons out of deer antler and sewed it all up by hand using artificial sinew. I sure hope he likes it!

Darren,

I'd say you're one fine leather artist...there seems to be no end to what you can do!  If'n he doesn't like it, borrow his pistola and shoot him!
