Someone wanted red and black combo.
Looks great I think. Thought I'd share a pic or 2. . . ok, maybe 3.
Hope you like it!

Man, this made me happy to see!

It's sö great seeing 'Handwork'.

'Handwork', with time and thought combined.

Today, with sö much cheap junk being produced,
AND SOLD(!);
seeing folks take the time to do this kind of work (🙂),..
makes me really happy.

My hat's off,
to the Artist who ordered it,
as well.
You've got good taste.

Frank, I hope your work gets honoured,..
so,
you can keep pushing it out.

All the best,
Gallagher

Looks great as always, Frank. But rather against the point of a pouch: calling attention to itself rather than fading into the background. The red leading their eyes exactly to where the "magic" is happening.
Oh, my friend we're older but no wiser, for in our hearts the dreams are still the same...

Yes it does attract some attention, I suppose, at first.
I used to think that was important. I would never care about that anymore.

any good performer will keep all attention elsewhere anyway.
when I realized that years ago I stopped using black pouches because I like the richness of other colors.

Another point... If your attire and props are red and black like the gentleman who ordered the first one, then this pouch would just blend in, looking completely natural.

My internet provider has a poor way of preventing hacking.... they block entire IP blocks and countries.
to unblock someone I need the IP address (which you can PM me if you wish).
i should really look into getting a different provider. It's ridiculous.

My current provider tells me.... "we can put you on the cloud without all the restrictions" to which I said "yes, please". Have not heard back.
The new provider also doesn't have all the restrictions but will be a HECK of a lot of work to get everything converted.

trying both options simultaneously.

Back to the pouches Smile Which pouch would fit best for the medieval style?

We've been asked to do pouches in medieval style and usually we are asked to use "old looking leather".
when you do that, they all seem to look good. the parlor plus pouch looks very good that way. that's what I would use.

i'm going to have the shop make a cellini pouch in steampunk colors next; black-brown instead of black-red. that should look splendid.
