Randwulf's Belt Pouch Pattern

MRPouch - Randwulf's Belt Pouch Pattern. This is a round-bottomed, flap-covered purse suitable for use as a belt pouch or as a Scotsman's sporran. The pattern is printed on a 24 by 36 inch sheet with illustrated directions. It includes three different sizes of pouch and step by step instructions for making the pouch in belt pouch, sporran, and shoulder bag configurations. There are many ways in which belt pouches were constructed. For example, simple rectangle of leather could be folded into three sections, two of which were sewn together along their edges so as to form a satchel shaped pouch. The Sporran (spɒrən; Scottish Gaelic for "purse") is a traditional part of male Scottish Highland dress. It is a pouch that performs the same function as pockets on the pocketless Scottish kilt. Made of leather or fur, the ornamentation of the sporran is determined by the formality of dress worn with it. The sporran is worn on a leather strap or chain, conventionally positioned in front of the groin of the wearer. Since the traditional kilt does not have pockets, the sporran serves as a wallet and container for any other necessary personal items. It is essentially a survival of the common European medieval belt-pouch, superseded elsewhere as clothing came to have pockets, but continuing in the Scottish Highlands because of the lack of these accessories in traditional dress. The sporran hangs below the belt buckle; and much effort is made to match their style and design. The kilt belt buckle can be very ornate, and contain similar motifs to the sporran cantle and the Sgian Dubh. Early sporrans may have been worn suspended from the belt, rather than hung from a separate strap in front of the wearer. When driving a car, dancing, playing drums, or engaging in any activity where a heavy pouch might encumber the wearer, the sporran can be turned around the waist to let it hang on the hip in a more casual position.
