Picture of A Leather Pouch for the Pocket Fire Box

When I saw Mr. Sanchez's

I was quite impressed with it and have decided to make my own, since I had recently acquired some Stainless Steel sheet. I have made the pouch first so that it could be entered into the 2019 Leather Challenge.

Step 1: Material and tools

I chose two pieces of leather to make it with. One of the pieces was thicker then the other. I put the cut steel on the leather to measure a piece for the back and a bit larger one for the front. The front piece is larger because the side and bottom are folded in so to give some width to the pouch.

If you are wondering about the single tool picture, it is a former CPU lifter that I removed every second tooth so I can use it to evenly space the holes for punching.

Thank you Mr. Sanchez, I had some pieces of heavy leather to make it with, and when I saw your stove and had some stainless steel, I knew wanted to make the stove, but the pouch came first.
