Hawk Studio – Belt Pouches


So, when I am watching mindless television so I can knit mindless stockinette stitch sweaters, Chip goes up into his loft and creates wonderfully useful things in leather.  This week he created two belt pouches – one using a striated dying method . . .

and the other using a block dye method.

I am never sure which manner of dying I like the best- I guess it depends on the piece.  Here I really like the use of the striations to give interest to the leather so I guess the first one is my favorite.  For those not versed in belt pouches, they are made so you can slide the pouch over your belt and wear it on your hip or wherever on your belt area.  Chip uses them alot when hiking and during dog training to carry the dog training treats.  They are great for the Renaissance Faire to carry your wallet, phone and cash in too.

These two would be considered medium sized belt pouches and retail for around $50.00 each.  The buttons are deer antler and the ties are round braided.  Chip said he chose these buttons to match their flaps.

I don’t know how much Chip will be able to get done next week – we may have our nephew Jacob with us but we will keep plugging away and hope that I have at least one thing new to show you from Chip’s workbench.  It keeps him happier.

Tonight we made our Tomato Crab Soup.  Can’t wait to tell you about it tomorrow.  See you then.

    Great pouches Chip! I like the blocked method better than the striated.
