One of the projects I’m using the 70 dm kangaroo skin for is a pair of 5 foot bullwhips. Here are the two bellies cut out:
These whips are built on a spring steel handle foundation, and will have a very slim profile to them.
Internally they have a core, plaited belly and two bolsters. The picture below shows the outer bolster attached:
In the picture above you can also see the knot foundations at the base of the handles.
I had to cut out the bellies for these two whips before getting to work on a third whip where I already have the insides made. I needed to use up some of the outside of the kangaroo skin on the bellies, so that the overlay for the third whip didn’t use the stretchy skin.
