Several pieces of hide were sewn together with strips of hide to make this pouch. The hide at the bottom was cut to create the fringe a zig zag cut made at the top. The beads are in two sizes; small seed beads for the main design and larger translucent beads in the bottom tassle and at the end of the hide pull at the top. The retangular shapes at either side of the bag are applied wool fabric pieces. Bead colors are yellow, light blue, blue, white, red, green, translucent green. The larger beads are translucent red and green.
