Now I just need to find about a square foot of leather to make it!
Any ideas, anyone? There are a lot of places that are reluctant to cut a hide.

You make it look so easy buuutttttttt when you do it there are always issues that arrise.
If your fairly good with your hands the issues are all workable. There is certainly nothing better than being able to say I made this.

There is a thread out there called artificial sinew that is great for sewing leather, or just about anything. It is pretty cheap $4 to $7 for a bunch of it.
But if you want something to outlast your leather use the real stuff, sinew!!!
You can patch a sole of a moccasin with this and when he leather patch is gone the sinew will still be there.
These are leather covered with rawhide.
