Little something different


I made up these two belt bags using the same pattern but, adding some simple tooling to one and stitching to the other.

On this bag I tried something a little different, I did some stitching on the flap.The stitching is of a old  Pennsylvania German Fraktur Style, and is done in a saddle stitch with waxed linen thread.

 Both bags are made from 3oz. veg. tanned leather, hand sewn with waxed linen thread, dyed dark brown and treated with neet-foot oil and bee's wax.
Bag size is 5" wide x 5 3/4" deep will take up to a 3" wide belt, Inside pocket added to the first bag and no inside pocket in the second.
