  • buckskin wallet

    My (plastic) wallet for documents is falling apart and I wonna do a buckskin wallet as replacement.

    The documents are in format DINA6, that is 105 x 148 millimeter or 4.13 x 5.83 inch.

    I have a paper form of the outer dimensions which will give me to inside pockets but I would need one insert with pockets on both sides.

    Shall the outer buckskin be one piece or better two pieces which would make it easier to sew the insert between the two outer pieces?

    Are you going to bead the outside?

    When I make checkbook covers, I use thin buckskin for the lining and any insert. It's one of the rare cases where I turn the buckskin grain side outwards, to improve resistance to soiling. Then I bead the outer cover, except the line along the fold. When I assemble it, I glue thin sheets of a slightly flexible plastic on either side of the fold. After I glue down the insert, I place a few anchor stitches through all layers along the fold. These will help prevent the two layers from parting when flexed. I bead over the fold with the cover folded. Then I stitch the outer edges together and bead over the seam with rolled edge beading.

      It has taken more time than expected. Partly due to beading all the small pouches.

          In mental difficult times, I tried to cool down but misjudged the width of the pattern on the buckskin.

          The wallet will serve its purpose and is well received for the reason and the significance it was made.

            Cradleboard Instructions (one style anyway)
            by OLChemist
            At long last me and the scanner are all working at once:

            These instructions are for a fully beaded, modern adaptation based on Oglala cradles. It is based on the soft cradle. I'm told the frame is not traditional, but reflects additions made to make cradles more marketable to whites....

            Hello, I am starting a men's northern set and I had a few beadwork questions regarding what to bead on, and the best way to construct certain things where it looks clean, professional, and will last a few years. I am not new to beading, but I only know how to bead on leather and deer sinew, which isn't...
