Instruction on how to produce a leather pouch.
I had a lovely email request from a father a few weeks ago. his 5 year old daughter was wanting to do some leatherwork, and his grandfather used to do leatherwork, but a long time ago, and he asked me if I could help them get started. took a little while had to order stuff in, but got this little kit ready now. a 4 prong chisel, hole punch, small size press stud kit, some roo lacing and two pieces of roo hide. with this it’s very easy to make a couple of cute little pouches, very easy and safe to do so. all kids love little pouches, boys and girls, and they also love making things, and leather is such a beautiful product, the smell and the feel, and roo leather is the strongest leather for weight in the world, very soft yet very strong. I’ve been working with leather plaiting belts since I was on a cattle station in the gulf when I was 22, and kaito used to love making little pouches, he made dozens of them, here’s one he made wen he was 7. he used to carry it everywhere. sending the father this kit today, with some instructions, can’t wait to hear how the little girl and her great grandfather get on making these pouches together. what a lovely memory and something wonderful parents or grandparents can share with their kids. and what an awesome craft for kids to learn, learning that u can make something, yourself, with your own creation and ideas, is something all kids need. Anyway might put this on the web if anyone else wants one. the small tools cost a bit but once u got them they last forever. so next time need only buy some more hide. all parts can be purchased from Birdsall Leather in botany, but if u not sure how to start this little kit is a great start . ????????????
