Hedeby Leatherwork

Nothing original this time, I just found Willy Groenman van Waateringe’s Die Lederfunde Von Haithabu (Leather Finds from Hedeby) (1984) online and thought you might be interested…

I’ll be making a quiver or two later, so stay tuned.

How to make a ‘medieval style’ possible pouch

Reposted here, not for the “medieval style’ pouch because the patterns aren’t sufficiently accurate, but for the use of the table fork as an awl. There’s a number of internal pockets and compartments missing when compared with the originals. Decorate to taste using the back of the butter knife as previously discussed.
