First bag I made

This is the first bag I made, an interpretation of a well-known early pouch from Virginia in the collection of Wallace Gusler.  It was made from 3/4 oz veg tan cowhide and has a series of pewter buttons for adjustment of the shoulder strap and horn straps.  It was enjoyable for a first effort to learn the basics and it is quite serviceable as well.  It was my first experience using the homemade stain known as ferric acetate.
