Created a little bag before I make the bigger version.
Nice work! As you know I'm trying to set up a flint and steel set. Have been looking on the internet at a lot of pictures. Thinking about trying to make me one of those leather pouches for a flint, steel and some tinder. But this means yet another project and getting some tools and materials. Do you think for starters leather from old boots can be used? Saw some used high boots for cheap at a recycle store or do you call it second hand store?
Thank you You can use old boots if there's enough leather and it's something you like. The tools can be cheap to get and it depends on what material you'd like to use? We call them second hand stores and if you're in there you should look at the leather purses. Sometimes you can find a plain one you can alter and sometimes they're in better condition. If you need help let me know. I'm still learning too.
Thanks, never thought of using purses for material. Will have a look!
Old boots purses jackets belts. All kinds can be used. Making your project would be a fun project to do you inspired me now I'm gonna make a frontiers fire kit now including my own flint striker from scratch. ..
Very cool. And hubby reused reduced and recycled with that linerlock spring. Very cool. If there is a sharp edge on that, you may want to consider adding a plastic liner...perhaps from a milk jug or something. Your leather work is getting better. Keep it and the pics coming!
Just saw some of your leather work in the other thread. Very nice! That Altoid tin thingy is what I was thinking about as a base for that fire kit. Looking forward to seeing you frontiers fire kit in progress!
Can a shammy or chamois be used too? Looks easy to use this for a soft pouch or bag.
Was just thinking though. Summer is due to happen and then I'd rather be outside. So my leather project may have to wait till fall and winter... I think... But reading up on leather working and looking for tools and materials can be done right now.
Me and hooves are big on not wasting things we are always trying to reuse and change into new.
They could but it's really soft it would be best utilized as more of a tinder pouch.
That's a very good idea! I didn't even think about that. Thank you!
You do some awesome work there, Mrs. Hooves! Thank you for resurrecting this thread, I'm looking forward to seeing more creations. This and the dedicated leather projects thread are a real inspiration for us newbies.
