My Prototype Belt Pouch, And What I Keep In It.

Today we’ll have a look at my prototype belt pouch which I have worn every day for over a year and a half.

First off let’s take look at the loop closure.

You can see the quick stamping I did to give it a bit of character.

 

Next let’s have a look at the belt loop, which includes the large copper dangler ring I hammered out.

 

 

 

 

Here we have it empty.

 

 

And sizing.

 

Next let us take a look at what I keep in it.

Starting at the bottom and moving clockwise we have: 

A small notebook, a tinder pouch, a whistle, a power-bank, the cord for said power-bank, and a small tin.

 

Inside the tin I keep a bit of thread, a small knife, a folding comb, some fishing kit, and a bit of paper to keep everything form rattling around. 

 

 

 

 

Inside the tinder pouch I keep a small ferro rod and some jute twine.

 

 

And that wraps up what I keep in my belt pouch šŸ™‚

Making the mini belt pouch.

So I forgot to take any pictures of cutting it out or punching the holes, but there’s not much to see with that anyways.

My first step was to sew the belt loop on.

I started out with a bit of waxed thread, but I decided that it looked a bit thin for the hole size, so I went with a wool blend yarn.

Of course, not being one to take the easy path,  I decided to embroider a tree on the front.

(I swear, this thing took me week embroider)

With that over, my next step was to sew the wool on to the flap.

Next was to sew the front and back together.

 

And finally, I flipped it right-side out.

And there we go, a mini belt pouch.

At 3 1/4″ x 2″ when closed, you can’t put a lot of stuff in it, but I wanted to try a bunch of things before making bigger belt pouches.

 

Cheers šŸ™‚

A leather checkers pouch!

Ok, so  for the second leather game pouch I went for a game everyone knows: Checkers!

For this one I chose black and frosted stones.

And of course, the best part is that it’s a little self contained pouch!

My first video!

My first maker video!

And I have to say that I’m pretty proud of it, not because it’s amazingly good or anything (it’s ok), but  because it was rather difficult for me to make.

So here’s a quick video of me making a leather pouch for a camp cook knife šŸ™‚
