today i scraped off the salt left on the squirrel skin and got off the dried up fat, well most of it. So i washed it off with soap and water just go get any major germs off and some of the smell which is like impossible to get rid of, its pretty much a wet dog smell, i just put some axe body spray on it cus i got tired of smelling it the whole time. well here are the pictures of what i made with it, took me about an hour to sew it all up. The things i put on the pouch were a belt loop and a button to keep it closed
the button might come off eventually because it looks like its tearing the hyde, i can fix it though, just resew
check these pictures out

Thanks for the pics! Some videos and tutorials would be great. Damn I wish I lived on a farm. Looks like I need to go out and get some more books.
