The split pouch project has been added to the “How-to” pages. Again, the introduction page gives the background and considerations that went into the design of this particular split pouch. The style is simple and utilitarian.
The number of existing split pouches from the 18th-century is very limited, and this pouch is not an exact reproduction of a known artifact. However, it does display the basics of the accoutrement type and size with a specific emphasis on similar work attributed to the Odawa and Ojibwe in the Great Lakes region from about 1785 to 1800. As promised, the aging techniques used on the pouch are included, and from the responses I received with the last posting, future posts will deal with other methods of aging.
Be safe and may God bless you,
