    Here are a couple of native American Flute Bags and a Harp Microphone Bag, I have made which I think could easily be converted into a quiver for arrows or crossbow bolts, Let me know what you think.!!!!

    Take the harp mic out and take a picture of some of your crossbow bolts inside of that bag and I would say everyone will think you made a crossbow quiver . The flute bag I would say they look great too, but are long enough for regular bow and arrow archery. I love to see real leather stuff every time, I like them! cheers cheers cheers

    Sounds like a good idea, I can also shorten the length of the flute bag to accomodate crossbow bolts, Just to let people know the edge braiding on the first flute bag is called a double spanish braid and looks really nice when finished right, does anyone have any other ideas for bolt quivers made from leather ???

    I particularly like the hip/belt quivers used by many of the horsebow folk - Mongols, Tatars, Turks, Chinese, etc.

    Here are two ideas, from different cultures.
    Mongol:
    Possible Quiver Quiver1

    Chinese Han Dynasty::
    Possible Quiver Quiver2

    Both are hung from a belt, worn facing the rear so the fletching doesn't snag on things. Generally these quivers have a spacer set into the mouth to hold X number of arrows spaced so the fletching doesn't touch. For crossbow quarrels/bolts, the quiver could be sized so that the long edge barely exposes the fletching and the shorter edge exposes more shaft.

    I really like those quivers and that is some nice leather work.



    Without much work those would make nice "traveling" quivers but still nice to use out in the forest.

    The little one would almost be ready to go as is. just depends on how it could attach to a belt.

    Theyare both hung from a waist belt via a pair of straps, one long, and one short. On the smaller quiver the straps would be attached to the back side of those bronze domes - where you see the strings coming out. You can see the strap attachment points on the new-made quiver in the top photo. They are designed to hang at about 45 degrees, not straight down, and not horizontal, with the butts of the arrows/quarrels/bolts behind you...
