My Latest Diy Sporran Project.

Recommended Posts

Here is a daytime sporran I just whipped up from left over materials I had on hand. It is an amalgam of Rob Roy and Hunting styles. The construction is from deerskin, calfskin, and hair-on kidskin.

Thank you John.

Here are some views of the back and inside, for those interested in the construction:

VERY nice work!

I like your nonchalant way of describing it....

I guess if you have that level of skills "slapping something together from scraps" can look exquisite!

Cheers. I've made quite a number of leather items (used to make historical reproductions for living history/reenacting), as well as sporrans etc. I have the tools, skill set and such to do it correctly, which makes a difference in the time needed.

I managed to fabricate this over the weekend as a result.

How do you do the round braids? They look fantastic!

It is a four strand leather cord braid, made using 1oz bookbinding leather. The flat braid is a 3 strand plait using 2 to 3oz deerskin strips. The sailor's knot used to close the flap is a small Globe Knot made with a leather thong around a wooden bead.

All of the sporran's leather components were dyed by me to compliment the hair on the goatskin flap panel.

Cheers.

Wow.. great looking sporran. I have some beginner tools and have been tempted to try my hand at making a sporran, heck just making a belt would be an accomplishment. Thanks for sharing.
