THREE HEART POUCH
This large bag double bag is designed after an early Pennsylvania style hunting pouch. The pouch measures 7 1/2"x 7 1/2" is fully lined with linen.

A tool pocket is sewn to the front on the main pocket for screwdriver of nipple wrench. The front pocket measures 6" x 6" is well suited for fint and steel or other necessities.
The pockets and flap are edged with pinked elk hide. The inleted hearts are red wool from a trade blanket. The strap is made of heavy cotton duck sewn over jute for added strenght. The strap ends are doubled cowhide with a cast brass buckle.

The strap is 48" of blue wool backed with cotton duck. There is a small pocket sewn into the back of the pouch for flints or other small things. This would make a good lightweight hunting pouch or small haversack. Very few cloth pouches have survived the ravages of time, although I have seen a few examples.

MILITIA CARTRIDGE BOX
This is a military style cartridge box that was often used by colonial militia men. The box cover is made of heavy cowhide. The block itself is made of pine and holds 24 rolled paper cartridges. The holes in the block are 3/4 of an inch, large enough for a brown bess cartridge. The holes are all drilled by hand using a brace and bit, just like the originals were made. As a result the top of the block may be chiped and some of the holes may be cut through, the bit sometimes wanders a little. There is a double flap. The second shorter flap is to keep out rain or a stray spark. The strap is 2 1/2" wide made of double layered linen for added strength. Each box comes with a brass vent pick and pan brush suspended from a brass chain. This type of box saw use throughout the 17th century and well into the 19th century. The color of leather may vary as to what I have on hand.
