Small Shot Bag & Accouterments

A completed shot bag along with a few accouterments for a customer. The shot bag is 6 1/2" wide at the top, 6 1/2" deep, the widest is 8 1/2" I also added a 1 1/4" gusset. It's makes a small bag but it's open enough to get your hand in to get what you need. It also has a nice size inside pocket. The cows knee is made from pig skin light but strong.
