    Here’s one I made , like Brokennock stated ... thinner leather is a plus when turning them inside out....

    This leather is really too thick , but it’s what I had on hand at the time..

    The plug and tube came from TOTW..

    This bag has 25 .530 round balls in it, with room for a couple more.... I case you need too anchor your canoe!

    Nice. That 3 panel design must add a lot of volume, and sit nicely on a shooting bench. But, must have been 3 times the trouble to stuff through the narrow spot for the neck when turning.

    The trick is to turn it inside out before you get to the last half inch or inch of stitching. Then shove the wood collar low into the pouch and then finish the stitching with the leather turned inside out. Then force the wood collar up into the correct position and wrap your thread around the bottom of the collar outside the pouch as usual.

    That is kind of what I do. With the stiffer leather I used this last time it was still very difficult.
