March Scraphappy

20170310_142006This month my ScrapHappy project was using a scrap of leather to make a pocket knife case.  Eric had been looking for a bone handle pocket knife for months so I used a 15th anniversary to present him with a woolly mammoth bone handle knife which has turquoise inlay and a damascus blade, it really is beautiful, but was next to keys and loose change in his trousers quickly leaving fine scratches in the finish.  I used leather, hand sewed the edges with sinew and added a screw on button (on an outside extra piece of material so the screw back wouldn’t touch the knife from the inside), with a thin strip of leather as a thong closure.  I love this handy little project and now I’m wondering what else I need to protect.  My daughter and I need credit card and bill pouches I’m sure, since we slide those in our pockets rather than take a full handbag so often, maybe with a key fob section?  I have go to see if I have a large enough piece for one of those !  Take care.
