Sporran Conversion

Recommended Posts

I was going through Ebay this morning and found this http://cgi.ebay.com/Snapping-turtle-shell-bag-fox-pow-wowrendezvous_W0QQitemZ330413452310QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item4cee2d2c16 it is a snapping turtle shell bag with fox pelt discussed it with the family accountant (my wife) about making the purchase and she was ok with it once I make the purchase I am planning on doing a little work to it and convert into a sporran.

That should look good. The turtle sporran reminded me of this sporran maker:

Mask sporrans

I have a bag very similar with a full mask red fox however the shell is 13 by 18 which is in my opinion way to big to convert. My initial idea was to just purchase a shell some leather and a pelt untill I stumbled upon this one which had a shell that was smaller. Thanks for the link, I was looking through the sporrans and I honestly have never seen any that were made out of game birds the one that caught my attention was the full mask roe deer.
