Making a Pair of Buckskin Garters

A pair of buckskin legging garters in an 18th-century styleAnother project has been added to the “How-to” pages: making a pair of buckskin garters. The introduction gives some background on garters with a strong Native American influence, appropriate for a native captive persona.

The first page deals with the factors I took into consideration, cites a specific museum example collected in the late-18th century in Michigan and the step-by-step making of a garter of buckskin. Splitting the garter tutorial into separate pages leaves the door open to expand on leggin garters, perhaps a finger-woven set and quilled or beaded legbands.

Be safe and may God bless you,
