Yes, I know this was supposed to be posted on Thursday, but having the boys home from school on Monday kinda pushed everything back a day.
This week Chip finished another field bag, though this one is a little smaller than the last one – it is 10″ wide by 8″ tall. It has a deer antler cinch closure on a rough edge front flap.
It has a split mystery braid should strap . . .
attached at the back of the bag.
Note that there is no metal on this bag. It is all leather and hand-stitched. It is made using 6/7 ounce vegetable tanned cow hide, which results in a leather thickness of about an eighth of an inch.
There is also an interior divider in this bag.
Chip used the block dying method in dying the leather. This bag will retail for $165.00 While field bags are usually carried by men, the size of this bag also allows it to be used as a handbag for women. One of my bags is about this size and it comfortably holds my wallet and checkbooks, notebooks, keys and pens.
Hope you like it.
I’m getting ready to go to Rhinebeck tomorrow – which is the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival and one of the biggest knitting/spinning parties on the east coast. They moved Markus’s football game from Sunday to Saturday so I am going alone. I am curious to see which draws me more now – yarn or roving. I have to do some reading tonight to make sure I know what I am looking at. Sis, I will be thinking of you.
