    I can't recall if I mentioned it already, but I personally run a business selling custom made kilts. My kilts are made to measure, and I do all the work on them.

    Anyway, along with the kilt making, I have taken up working with leather so that I may also provide hand made sporrans with the kilts I sell. My sporrans are not as custom as the kilts; I design the sporrans myself, then produce them using leather.

    I'm not totally trying to plug myself here, though if anyone has any interest, feel free to e-mail my business e-mail at cromag_kilts@comcast.net (it's a temp addy until I get a domain set up).

    Anyway... I wanted to share some photos of my favorite sporran (to date) that I have made. Though it is my fave, I've become somewhat unfond of the shape. I intend to do another with more of a tear drop shape, using a darker leather for the front and back and more of the black suede for the gusset. I JUST designed a sporran that I think will look quite nicely when done.

    Anyway... check out the photos on my photobucket account:

    I see how much interest there is in this thread, but I telling everyon I just added photos of my latest creation. It could either pass as a kid's sporran or just a small belt pouch.

    Check it out.

    I am in a Scottish/Irish marching band (I play the drums) and i just got a genuine Middleton Stewert sporren, and it is mostly fur, not much leather.
