Mage satchel

OK, have another apothecary/mage’s satchel up for sale on Etsy.  I ran out of the leather I was using to make the other ones, so found one that’s similar in color but definitely not in texture – this is MUCH softer, more like deer hide (which it might be).  I’m still sort of torn as to whether I like it or not.  I mean it definitely doesn’t look bad – I just don’t know if I like it as much as the others.  I’m going to try this other veg tan leather out to see if I like it any better.

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.

One thought on “Mage satchel”

  1. In my experience (and I have some now), going with a tougher leather is ideal for someone who’s going to be using it very often. If mine had been crafted from something very soft, I think it might be too worn to be much good anymore, but as it is, it’s only gotten a little soft and slightly changed color (darker).
    Also, random fact, one of my more English-able students thinks your crafting is amazing =)
