Buckskin Bag Part 3

Published by at 12:34 am under Animal Materials

I have made a little progress on my buckskin bag. I have made a carrying strap (not attached yet) and stitched on the fur strip from part 2.

Buckskin strips cut. These have been stitched together after this photo was taken and is ready to be assembled on the bag.

The fur strip was stitched on from the middle and out to both sides, to reduce risk of unwanted folds. In the ends I folded over the fur to make it look a little more seamless.

Run a needle or awl along the seams to try to catch and pull out any hairs sticking in the holes or underneath the stitches.

The first strip is now attached. I stitched all the way around it. I am planning on adding two more tomorrow, given that I have the time for it.
