Percussion Cap/Ball Pouches

I was contacted by a gentleman from the props dept of a movie company. They asked if I could make two cap/ball pouches for the bounty hunter in there production. He would be carrying a Colt second model Dragoon.
They didn’t want them to look like the normal military pouches of the day. They wanted something different and they need them in two weeks. So I made up one using the size from a original that one didn’t pass. So I came up with this one. That’s what they wanted! So I made one in dark brown and one in black.
They are now heading to Savannah GA.
