Yeah it's a holdser / shoulder bag. My brother asked for it to be out of fur and buckskin, so that is what I"m using. He wanted something cool
looking. I really like that bag you made with all the fringe around it. It was stand out for sure. I see you are beading your bags now,, and the edging looks
really cool. I do want to learn how to put beads on the edges of things, I just can't figure that out, and my daugher wants a bag with beading so I guess
I'll have to learn. Maybe someone will do a edge beading tutorial HINT HINT to anyone who wants to give it a try.
Yea that puzzle bag is way cool. I'd like to try a bigger one. They mitten pattern on there also that looks very cool. Might try that too when I get out
from under some of my work here. I have enough hides now to stop and craft.
Like you I try things and when they don't look good I rip it out and do it again differently, or add something different to them. I'm working on
combining the darker sumac tanned leather onto braintan but it takes time to work out the bag. I have three bags and a quiver in progress right now.

Take several small stitches to secure the thread in the buckskin to begin. Add from one to 5 beads. The last bead will be the one that lies flat on the
edge. Penetrate the buckskin (a 1/16th of an inch or so on whitetails is good), then come back up through that same bead as the last one you added to your
chain of beads this will secure the bead to the edge.. then simply begin stringing your chosen amount in whatever color, number or order in which you prefer.
It's easy and fun to do. Hope you try it. I found my beads at the dollar store.. They're from China and came in little plastic tubes.. like 6 or 8 of
them for a dollar. I like them as they're all irregular and most remind me of carnival glass.
