Have a Green River knife that needs a sheath and was thinking about trying to craft a Indian bead sheath for the nostalgia but haven't a clue how to start... Any instructions, tips, and/or pictures would be much appreciated... Thank you...

Here’s a video on beading leather.

Made one a few years back with the help of you tube! Sorry! I don't remember the site. It turned out better than expected.

I watched the video and it looks like a satisfying project but very time consuming project. You'd have to have leather soft enough to pass the needle through but thick enough to give protection. Maybe elk or moose hide.

I made one many years ago, with deer skin on the outside and rawhide inside. It gives plenty of protection and beads attach easily to the deer skin.
