That's wonderful, and the turnable strap idea is genius!
Well done!

Oh, I don't know, it is top drawer...


I've been inspired. How difficult a craft is it to get into? Does one need lots of expensive equipment?

Ha, I've been musing the same. I have and old leather full length coat (I was a bit of a goth back in the day)'that I was thinking of making into reel bags. So I'd be very interested to know the bear essentials.

HI Marc

Good thick leather can be expensive mate, the actual price of the sewing kit is negligible

Tremendous, I can't believe it's just a hobby.I will use my float winder case for as long as I live and I know it will have a few centuries left in it after that!
