#72, Coverlet shot pouch

This small shot pouch is made from a remnant of a reproduction overshot coverlet, lined with linen.  The leather portion of the flap and the strap are made of cowhide.  This was influenced by a photograph of an original pouch that had a similar design.

Pouch #71 - Calf hair

This pouch is made from cowhide, hair-on calf hide and pigskin.  The strap was woven by Kris Polizzi and is adjusted by a forged steel buckle.  The single-banded powder horn was made by Mark Ewing and was based on an original from Virginia.  The powder measure was also made by Mark Ewing.  The dagger was made by Joe Scott.  I made the accoutrement chain from hardened brass wire.

This open-top pouch is made from several different antique fabrics.  The coverlet strap is backed with cowhide and trimmed with bark-tanned deer hide.  Hemp rope is used to attach the strap to the pouch and is left long for attachment of a powder horn and other items.  The exterior layer of the pouch has woven repairs and is tin-clothed.  There is an antique bone button for closure.
