I have had this lovely, little light axe for a while now and only got around to making a proper cover for it. I thought it would be useful to have a small bag attached to it, so that I would be able to carry a few things such as a sharpener and also a small fire making kit, sewing kit, maybe a small knife too.
So I made this welted, short fringed bag inthe mountain man style I like. I did not follow any particular patterns, simply made it in the style I like. There is a extra small inside pocket on the back. The bag is about 8" wide X 6" high. The leather is a soft water buffalo skin. There were a couple of holes in the skin and I used those as a feature, filling one with a small piece of what looks like snake skin.
It is all handsewn, with waxed linen thread, I hand forged the rings out of some mild steel and the buckle I used is a small square brass one a friend gave me.
