It is not double sueded.

The difference between outside and inside isn't so much, to my eye but you are right, I beaded on the smoother side.

It would be much easier if I could hand you the leather to examine. What I can get is the so called German tanned buckskin. The quality can differ a lot.

If I remember right, this bag is made from a "scrap" piece which the tanner at black forest sold for 5€ a piece because he s aid that piece is unusable for clothing on sale.

Good enough for starters and bags for that purpose. Fired black powder cartridges can be very dirty and bp residue is quite clinging.

You gave me a good reason for a second bag of that design, this time with the cones at the end of the Fringe. There are enough brass cones left for a second bag.

Twisted fringe I am not sure that I would go for that.

Pst, the copper and tin cones are more to my liking than the brass ones.

I have never had a close look on old original beadwork. Only a look at more than arm length away and shielded by glass at the Karl May Museum.

Antique beads I know can be found in Germany but not easily and I do not have any. Even the modern Czech beads can have edges which wear on the thread and are not as uniform as one might think. At first I was once quite astonished that No. 9 black beads fit to No. 10 white, red, yellow and blue beads while No.10 black beads seems to fit more to No. 11 beads of other colors.

Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace.
