Very nice.  What are the dimensions?
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

It is roughly 8 x 8.  I made it a tad bigger because it services my double barrel shot gun so I need room for shot containers, a couple of different wads, and patches and round ball, etc.   It has a tiny pocket inside to hold a tin of percussion caps; other than that it is just an open pouch.

Looks to be about the right size for a hunting pouch, WW.....and I love the 'camo' material you chose!   What do you use for a shot container?

I was gifted a shot snake with an Irish style control head.  I also have a collection of thick walled old fashioned glass bottles that I use when I'm feeling really traditional.

  Good job,  I like it,  bring it with you to the meet,  That's not your new horn is it ?

It is a start.  No the horn that is a beat up old thing I grabbed at a gun show a few years ago.  The end is split so I patched it with some rawhide.  It holds powder -- just barely :D
