TF2 Sniper real leather quiver by greenzaku TF2 Sniper real leather quiver by greenzaku
Same deal as with the leather pouch here at [link]

I realise I could make this entirely out of corrugated cardboard and it would be a very nice cosplay prop already, but seeing that I have ready access to leather offcuts and the tools to work it...it dawned on me that I could go ahead and make a REAL quiver. (Well that's what I assume it is, since arrows appear in it when you equip the Huntsman, and the kukri is drawn from his side.)

This was a bit more complex, but I've left the plan up for people to follow. I am a total noob in leatherworking and I'm certain this thing might offend the sensibilities of DA's very skilled resident leatherworkers and bowyers, but then I'm self-taught and don't have complex tools.

E-cookies for whoever can guess why I added a little adjustable buckle for the smaller strap near the top even though its not on the canon images of Sniper ;). To paraphrase Engie, it solves _practical problems_.

FORGOT TO ADD IN THE IMAGE: At top right, the three rectangular pieces are made of DIFFERENT THICKNESSES of leather. From left to right, the first is two very HARD (like heavy boots) pieces sandwiching a piece of foam, the second is SOFT (like upholstry sort of texture), and the last one is a single layer of the HARD stuff.

Ahh this is great! I made the pouch out of leftover materials I had using your pouch tutorial. It was amazingly helpful and turned out perfectly. I'm currently working on this one and I just wanted to ask how long in inches is the main body of the quiver? I can tell it's over 12 inches obviously but you don't have it labeled in the photo. Even a good guess/estimation would be fine, I'd just like an idea.

Thank you very much and rely soon C:

Oh pft, never mind, Once I downloaded the picture I can see all the measurements clearly. My bad, I probably should have done that first x__x

This is so very helpful! Will this work if I were to use khaki fabric?

There should be no problem at all, however you may want to look into putting a small piece of wood or other harder/thicker in the bottom to keep it internally rigid as I have used a bit of foam here and a different thickness of leather for one of the walls and two layers on the bottom.

Ah, thank you!

wait shouldn't that bottom measurement be a straight up 8 instead of 8.5? 2X3 for the sides and 2 for the middle?

The extra 0.5cm is to cover the edges of the thicker side piece.
