Ok, I've done armor and jewelry, what else could there be right?
Why a pouch of course! :D

Constructed using the same material and weave as my Chainmaille Vest I just put a little seam along the bottom and threaded some wire through the top to make a pouch :)

Ah but the beauty of it is that it's made from aluminum! That pouch actually weighs very little, every time I show an aluminum piece to someone the moment they pick it up they say "Wow! It's so light!" :)

That's really cool. Does it hold things well?

yep, so long as that knot in the wire drawstring holds together :)
I need to weld that sucker or something, it keeps poking me :shakefist:
RizelNoMore's avatar
Does it have to be a wire drawstring? (because if cloth worked it'd be a big less pokey.)

I'd actually used a strip of leather before, but the problem is there are usually slight gaps between the ends of the rings and the leather would get caught in those gaps :hmm:

hmm.. Check the jewelry section in a bead shop. They have end clams and other such oddities you might could use on the poking wire. Or even a sodering gun to melt the tips smooth :D

its so cute! though I'm not a pouch person I'd probably like to own one of those just let it sit there. or carry it around for protection. someone comes to grab me. *WHACK* the guy drops like a bag of rice hahahaha

I've seen chainmaille purses done if that's more your style :o
Plus more weight for bashin purse-nappers ;)

mmm no I'm not a purse person either. I'm not much of a girl put it that way. hahaha jkjk. no I just don't feel comfortable with a purse. I'm more of a bag person.... so carrying around a huge chainmaille bag would be a bit much. haha
