Buckskin Bag Part 2

Published by at 11:58 pm under Animal Materials

Not much progress today on the bag. Cut two fur strips (nervewrecking) and sewed them together to make the joint look pretty seamless. When you cut the fur, cut only through the skin, not the hairs, or it will look very square and odd.

The sewing is done on the inside, since the outside is what will show.

I need two more strips before I start stitching them on.

    I assume thats for the strap?

    As for my pelts, theyre thin and easily softened, but I am smoking them to keep them that way. The raccoon pelt will be brained then softened however.

    I look forward to see what you make out of them.

    It’s not for the strap, the strap will be buckskin, the fox skin is too weak. This strap is for decoration.
