Pouch for my Tinderbox

My lovely wife bought me a Hudson Bay tinderbox for christmas and I'm well pleased with it, so I thought I'd make an animal skin pouch to keep it in



Skin measured and cut to size to fit the tinderbox on the left



Bag finished with an antler toggle to keep it closed, all in all it's not too shabby and will keep the box plus extra tinder all neat and tidy
