A leather sheep's hide tanned some time ago has had many uses. A hatchet resurrected with a new handle and a sharp blade needs a cover. Michelle sets to work with the leather punch, strong cotton and a pair of sharp scissors. A few minutes later the cover is done - tight enough to stay on and loose enough to be removed easily.
There is not much leather left among the scraps but Michelle makes a knife cover to go on a belt with one of the remaining scraps. Practical, real and truly homemade.
