" End of the Trail" beaded and tacked sheath I made for this mid 1800's era knife.
I usually sketch a picture of the sheath I'm preparing to make. Then I duplicate the lines for the design lightly with a fine tip pen directly onto the cloth or buckskin.Beautiful work! I've been tempted to try some simple beadwork on the frontier sheaths I've done. How much set up and planning goes into it?
