In this post you’ll be able to Watch Me Make Three Deerskin Pouches – New Video! I am doing a series of videos that share parts of my process while making various things. Deerskin pouches are something I’ve made since I was 21 years old. There are endless designs I come up with because they are all one-of-a-kind, but these 3 have 2 common styles I use. One style is a drawstring pouch with fabric that’s great for keeping in a pocket or purse/handbag. The other style is wearable like a necklace and has fabric.

About the Pouches
Rest assured that I always use repurposed and reclaimed deerskin hides. I never buy from commercial sellers who kill deer from deer farms! You may already know this, but I LOVE deer! They live on my acreage and we protect them 100%. Deer have always been important to me in my life. I adore them.
I use a variety of colors of deerskin. I hand cut everything by hand with scissors. Some pouches have fabric sewn on. Most of the fabric is vintage fabric from Mexico or Guatemala. To make stitches I use natural fiber sinew with flat wax seals instead of tying knots. I cut the straps by hand as well. I also make larger versions of the pouches seen in this video, as well as more complex medicine bags and purses. There are so many different types of pouches I make, so I will eventually show more videos of myself making different styles. Let me know if there is a style you really want to see me make!
