PostSubject: Pattern for Rainy Day Bag   May 31st 2017, 10:27 am

I've had requests for the pattern for this bag. Of course you can make it out of any leather, not just the oiled stuff.

To start with, get yourself a copy of Recreating the 18th Century Hunting Pouch by T.C. Albert for the "how to" stuff. There is NO better single reference for sewing, and especially for installing gussets and welts. It's so good, just about anyone can do it if you follow his clear instructions and excellent pics.

Following are photos of the pattern, laid on a background of 1" squares for scaling. Not shown are the two welts. They're simply strips of leather 5/16" wide.

Back Panel.  If you want a flat front panel without the downward scallop, it's marked on there too.


Front Panel with the scalloped top, if you prefer that.


Flap


Gusset

Hi BrownBear, I read with great interest about your Rainy Day Bag and very eager to make my own but the pix you posted are gone. Could you re-post or email to me the pix so I can make my own bag please?  Thanks.

I will second this request. This was a good thread. I clicked on your pattern link and it is gone, too. 
I know I have the book, but it would be nice to reference. 

I use imageshack now since our photos got held ransom, if it helps.

Sorry not to respond sooner.  The links got broken when I quit photobucket.  I've since moved on to postimage.org, but I've been slow in running around restoring links.

I'm on the road, returning home late tomorrow night.  Give me 24 hours to unpack and sort mail, and I'll get back to this.  

If my memory gland fails, bug me!  Very Happy

BTW-

On the first photo you'll see a line across the pattern with the notation "Straight Front." That's for use if you prefer a straight front rather than one with a dip like in the third photo.

BB, I just finished going through this book you recommended. I enjoyed it. It does look very doable 
and easy to follow.

I know you can use a variety of leathers. Did I miss what kind you chose? 

What brand of scissors did you use?

I saw some nice buffalo hide today at Tandy Leather. I like it a lot, but it had some holes in the hide 
and you had to buy the whole piece. I felt it was a bit pricey for the cuts made when skinning.

PS. 'Piece' = whole buffalo

I'm really fond of Tandy's Stoned Oil Sides.  Neat neat stuff with a nice hard surface, yet softer than veg tanned. It's ideal for wet times.
