Side Ruffled Pouch

My love for leather is ever increasing. Oh the smell! I could sit all day with a piece in hand, just sniffing away. There’s something luxurious about it – from the soft buttery lambskin to the firm strong vegetable-tanned cowhide. I probably know next to nothing about leather compared to the growing number of leather craftsmen all over the world. But what I do know is that a little bit of hide goes a long way in making something beautiful. Here are some┬ápouches I made some time back. I was experimenting with different ways of making a pouch and chanced upon a ruffled side. I kinda like it. What do you think?
