I wanted a small pouch/bag that can hold medications, fire-starting tools, smokes - whatever.

I made it so that when the draw strings close the pouch mouth, it can be suspended from a waist/belt, or possibles bag strap, etc, etc.

I hand sewed it up from some tanned buckskin I had on hand, loosely patterned it after a Western Apache Medicine pouch I had seen.

Thanks !

Here's what I had to work with: a few penciled design ideas, buckskin (chrome tanned ? ), fabric paint, gel stain & cut artist brushes.

The design I made is a mixture of my ideas, copied (not traced) onto the leather with a pencil, then colored in.

After everything dried, I applied stain over all, wiping it off while still wet, for an "antique" look.

Very nice job...and a great use of scrap leather. Mine only holds true medicines, all else goes into either my shooting bag or my possibles pouch.

I'm getting old enough that if I'm going anywhere for more than a day I need a medicine pouch to take all my medicines along. :(
