I got a Schrade Credit Card Knife recently. Sheath was decent, but I decided to have some fun and make a new one.

And this the result. The Owl’mups, the world’s first embroidered Great Horned Owl neck knife sheath.

I made a small leather scabbard for the knife. The wings form a small pocket on the back, that I’ll likely keep a ferrocerium rod in.

Some during photos.

The original sheath.

The leather scabbard for inside.
Image
The four pieces that make up the head.
Image
The back and head attachment with the leather scabbard attached to it.
Image
The back, front and wings ready to be attached. This shows a first attempt at the wings. The back portion needed to be widened and the entire surface covered in embroidery made it too stiff to fold around. The feathers also needed to be a little wider. A lot of back and forth and amendments with this.
Image

Probably somewhere between 80 to a 100 hours in this. Between drawing it in Illustrator, setting up the embroidery files, running the pieces, sewing and merrowing it together by hand.
