My first completed leatherworking project -- a pouch made of scrap garment leather and a lynx tail! Some found brass links and re-purposed brass rings connect it to my old belt :) Everything save for the thread are made of repurposed materials; the lynx tail was scrap too.

I hope to make other fun things like this. First I need to invest in some leatherworking tools tho!




This is my most recent acquisition -- an old polar bear claw, salvaged from an antique rug. I'm not a very spiritual person, but it has a very calm and peaceful air to it. Even so, there's something very powerful about it.


Here is my collection thus far; I've posted it already on my main journal but I thought I might as well put it up here.

I feel bad for the polar bear that died to make a rug but it's still pretty cool that you have a polar bear claw. I feel so conflicted :(

Well it is from 100+ years ago...so I'm definitely not supporting the poaching of polar bears! Also, personally I hate taxidermy rugs. It seems so disrespectful to the animal.

Wow, that bag turned out so beautifully! Very swanky. Also, your collection is great. It looks really nice in those cubbyholes.

Thank you so much! :3 It's pretty simple, but I'm hoping to experiment more so I can hone my (currently crappy) sewing skillz.
