This week I made some saddlebags, designed to fit on the back of a western saddle.
Most I’ve seen have eyelets that the saddle strings go through. I improvised with dee rings, so the bags could be attached to a saddle, if you have one with long strings. My saddle doesn’t, and I’m not sure how much it matters in model scale, but faux strings could be tied on if needed.
The pouches are quite roomy (well, in this size…) and close with velcro.
I will admit that part of the fun in making this was coming up with all the things to stick inside of it:
There are nine pieces total, including a tiny peanut butter sandwich.
In other news… school’s done for the semester! I have one more class to take before I graduate this August. Then…??? I’m hoping for some big changes but life tends to have other ideas. We’ll see!
