Belt Bag

I just finished up this belt bag for a friend. It's a small size bag measuring 5" at the opening and almost 7" at it's widest point and 4 1/2" deep with a 1" gusset add.
 There is a small pocket sewn on the front of the bag. This is the second bag that I have used vinegaroon to dye the leather. This is a great size for a fire starting kit. The bag is the same size as the one I made for myself. I carry lose ball and tow for shooting or cartridges in mine along with a couple of extra flints and a small turn screw in the front pocket. I can do all of my loading from this bag.
