We're getting the Textile Straw Badge polished up but need some help brainstorming for the Leatherwork list.
(keep in mind that leatherwork is optional so to keep the badge vegan-doable)
We need some ideas for leatherwork that involve creating (we already have some repair stuff) finished items that take between 0.5 to 6 hours for an experienced person to make (but might take longer for someone just learning)
My ideas so far
- tan a rabbit hide fir on (4 hours)
- make rawhide (2 hours)
- sandels (??? hours)
- slippers (??? hours)
- shoes (??? hours)
- gloves (??? hours)
- apron (2 hours)
- watch strap (1 hour?)
FYI there is tanning stuff in animal care for domesticated critters but the hunted critters probably need a BB spot.
Hatchet/axe heat protector
Knife scabbard or holster (whatever they're called)
Cord for shoelaces or bolo ties
Wrist protector for bow and arrow (is that a thing anymore?)
I'm thinking gloves and shoes are a lengthy process but I don't know. Moccasins count as shoes, right? Or if not, that's another one for the list.
Here's an image search for some "simple leather crafts":
"Hundreds of years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in or the type of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that it becomes a tourist destination"
If you believe you can tell me what to think, I believe I can tell you where to go. Go read this tiny ad!
