Double Shot Bag

 This is a new bag which I just finished up. It is a small double shot bag, hand sewn, made from 3oz. veg tanned leather, dyed a dark brown and treated with bee's wax. The back portion of the bag has a 1 1/2" gusset sewn in while the front bag has a welt seem sewn in, for a small bag it has lots of room, there are no other pockets in the bag. The flap has some tooling done to it and a button closer, to me it looks like a Aspen leaf. The strap is 1" wide and fitted with a forged buckle. The finished size of the bag is 6" wide x 6" deep.
