Grain on bark tanned leather hunter pouch or possibles bag made from deer harvested 2 years back. I made vegetable tanned leather from that deer hide which is now an axe mask and this pouch among other things. The deer's hoof serves as a button to hold the pouch closed.

I'll use this pouch, a bark tanned belt pouch, and the buckskin tinder pouch for bushcraft outings, foraging, hiking, deer and squirrel hunting. How I made the possibles bag: one piece of grain on leather 12"" x 18". I used a leather punch and regular sewing needle along with Spiderwire fishing line to sew it up, inside out, 6" on two sides, which left a 6" flap to close it up and run a deer hoof button through. I sewed around the button hole with the Speedy stitcher awl and used two scrap pieces of bark tan leather for belt loops, sewed them on with the speedy stitcher as well.
