Thoughts: I am no skilled leatherworker at all, but here is a quick gift made for a friend.
Looking for a basic, practical item, this case is what had come to mind. Tiring of symmetrically-based ideas, I settled on something somewhat more adventurous: an aged, roughly-designed case which I liken to Orcish work. It's edges and surfaces were treated with a basic antiquing effect.
Note the two rings in addition to the belt-slot, if one is wishing to hang or tie the case to any other nearby object in case one's belt will not suffice.
Details: A leather belt-case measuring 5 inches by 4 inches, 1 1/2 inches deep.
Materials: vegetable-tanned leather, 3 types of Eco-Flo stains, Satin-Shene finish, antique-gel, dark-brown lacing, nickel-plate rivets, antique nickel eyelets, and a nickel-plate buckle.
