Your suggestions are always welcome.


The piece was beaded before sewing. After sewing on the left side, it was turned inside out. Same as with medival shoes or mocassins. The seam is not beaded yet.

I think about a row of black beads from the bottom to the top on the side. In this way, it can be interpreted as a flag pole. Dark brown may be another choice.

It is a piece of remaining scrap leather of a not overly good hide I got for the asking. Hard to tell what the smooth side is. It is not brain tanned. Brain tanned hides are hard to get.

I'll try your suggested method with the wood. What is a good width for fringe? Suppose depending on the dimension of the piece himself. With the cones attached to the Fringe, may be 3 mm or 1/4 inch?

Sigh, Rhonda Holy Bear.com very, very good looking.

Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace.
