This article of clothing was constructed as part of the IRCC challenge. This is a portion of an overall outfit I hope to enter into a Pentathlon in the future year(s). The overall garment is intended to be worn by an Italian gentleman who living between 1520 and 1540. This is a leather pouch styled to match a single strand paternoster I recently made. This leather pouch has leather draw string and two tassels on the corners. The tassels are smaller versions which are designed to match the one I made for the prayer beads. The leather was originally part of a sleeve from a coat I purchased from Salvation Army. The pouch was hand stitched together using waxed linen thread.
