I made the bag to look the same as my old one, the only difference is I added a gusset 1" wide tapering down to 1/8 “and made it deeper about 1”. The strap is 1/4” wider because a friend gave me a hand made brass buckle to use on my bag. It’s a nice little bag. I’m just not sure on the size, it looks BIG! Well turkey season is coming up fast so I will give it some woods time and see if I like it.

The Flap is double sided with simple tooling added to the front and the edge is burnished. Button closer. No pocket.
It's hand stitched with welted seams and made of 2/3 oz. veg. tanned leather. Dyed, and treated with neatsfoot oil and sealed with bee's wax. A small outside pocket 4"W x 2 1/2"D fitted in the back with two belt loops wide enough to take a 2 1/2" belt.The flap is plain in the front while the back is lined with a striped linen and the edge is trimmed in pig, with a button closer.
Great for ones fire starting kit or other items needed.
