Things I made ar Gulf Wars-3

A leather flask. This is really cool it took days to make. it is sealed inside and out with wax. The cool part about that is it is easy to fix if the seal is compromised. the trick is using vegetable tanned hides. I carved a strawberry on it as a makers mark. I love this I want to make more but that will have to wait for more planning. It will end up being a class I teach at some point in the future. BTW bottles like this sold for $45 The class was $7. it was sewed with linen waxed thread, using a saddle stitch.
