Christmas came early for me when Teres bought me a pair of Reindeer skin trousers, something I have wanted for many years.
They are made to my specification by a friend of ours who designs and makes both traditional and modern Sámi clothing.
They are very warm and comfortable but one problem I have found is that keys in my pocket have stretched and discoloured the Reindeer skin, so Teres came up with the idea to make a special leather pouch for my keys which I have now made.
When I do not need my keys, I pull a leather cord which draws the keys up inside the pouch
The pouch is easy to make. You cut out two bell shaped pieces of leather which are joined together at the top. Sew both sides together
and make a small hole in the leather at the top, through which you put a leather cord (I used a four-strand round plat to make my leather cord). Attach the end of the cord inside the pouch to your keys and make a knot or attach a metal ring to the opposite end and the pouch is completed.
