Now continue again with the upper part and start weaving over 4 warps together, reducing the width step by step over 6 rows until you have a very tight weft.

After having done the same with the bottom part of the pouch you can detach it from the "loom".

Before you continue tighten the wefts for a last time by putting a finger in one of the two loops and pushing the weft towards the center. Be careful and don`t pull too hard, otherwise you`ll lose the other loop as it will be pulled to the weft.

Now we start whipping. There are two methods for this. One is shown here in the loop with the knot.
Untwist the remained weaving cord. With the jute cord I used here I had luck that the untwisting resulted in a pair number of strands.

Take a part of the strands and whip them around the loop tightly.

When your whipping cord is nearly finished, take the other part of the untwisted cord and start whipping from the other end of the loop in a direction that the whipping cords can be knotted together when they meet.

You can see it on this picture where the pouch is shown from the back side.

The other whipping method is shown here for the other loop. Don`t untwist the remained weaving cord, but whip it completely around the loop. Make a tight whipping.

(Another change of background)

Take one part of the strands and sew them through the loop-near woven rows.

At the end the strands should come out at the backside of the pouch ...

... where you knot them together with the other strands you got from untwisting the whipping cord.

Add a drop of glue on each knot. After the glue is totally hardened, you can trim the remained ends.

Your pouch is ready to get some cords attached.

This kind of pouch is very versatile. It holds many sizes of ammo very securely but has a very good release, due to the reduced width after the center and the cup shape that is not too deep.

When using natural fibers you can wet the pouch in cold water. After complete drying it`ll become very soft and flexible.

Have fun with sling making and slinging.
I hope IŽll post the other tutorial(s) soon.
