I have long wanted to make my own gibecière for use in my work at Renaissance faires. The motivation for wanting to make my own is because I have great skill in leatherworking and would enjoy the time spent making it. Is there anybody on here that has a good pattern for a gibecière that they would be willing to share? If not, does anyone know somebody that has one and would be willing to share it?

I realize that designing my own is an option, but I would like to see what else is out there too. I also realize that there are plenty of places from which to purchase one, but that is not my desire here.

If you want to see other designs just look at pictures I guess. I know it took Gazzo years to arrive at his design which makes the bag look the same whether empty or full and is deceptive in regards how small it looks in relation to what it can carry.

That is the conclusion I am quickly coming to, along with having to experiment with a blend of different materials to get to that point. This will be a bit difficult as I am trying to make it an accurate period accessory, more for Renaissance and Medieval era re-enactments. Thanks for your input James!

Of course Bill Palmer knows about these things when he is available.
In the meantime, you might research period images of game pouches in hunting scenes
and costume books. This being the origin of the magician's pouch.

I have many of these already, but none of them quite fit my needs. I started some years back, when I was still in Europe, finding paintings with street performers and hunting scenes to get some ideas. Costume books usually seem to provide designs that are more geared toward their use as a fashion/catch-all bag (which, technically speaking, is their traditional purpose), rather than a pouch-style one would use for magical needs.

I could easily make one up, but I just do not want to have to do it four or five times before I find the right design/solution.

Thanks for your input Jazzy!
