This is the pattern I use to make my Birka Shoulder Bag (so called because it's just like the Birka Pouch, but reimagined as a shoulder bag).
This is only the pattern, no instructions; for a rough visual demonstration, you can watch my video: Artisan Viking Pouch
For instructions on how to assemble the pieces, you can also watch my pouch kit instructional video: How To Make a Birka Viking Pouch
