    I got a nice piece of leather today so this evening I made a couple of pouches.

    One for coffee and sugar and the other as a tinder pouch.

    Coffee pouch.




    Tinder pouch.


    Heres what i put in the tinder pouch.

    A small bag of pine resin,a bag of birch bark & small pieces of fat wood and some UN-twisted jute twine.

    Both pouches.

    There's no way you do tool bags or saddle bags for motorcycles is there? That's really handy. I like the workmanship; simple but it looks sturdy.

    Nice work... just found a bunch of leather I forgot about while cleaning up today... think you've inspired me a bit[boozingbuddies]
    Nice tinder selection... is there fatwood to be found there?....
    I like oakum for tinder... works well... for an old fart like me... its kinda cheating though...[lolol]

    Anywhere there's old pines there should be fat wood about,yes you can find fat wood here if you keep your eyes peeled.

    I just became a member today and this is my first post...

    I have made some pouches of Kangaroo leather since I live in Australia... I can highly recommend it for use as it gets beautifully soft with use, but remains exceptionally strong...

    Thanks for the pics... lovely work!
