Default Merlin Shark Skinned Hood Saver

Just finished, saver to hold merlin sized hoods up to female Cooper hawk. The Merlin Hoods are vintage Clayton Smith hoods that are in my collection. A Big Thank you goes out to the Crazy Cajun Chris C, these hides are as tough as Nails, a bitch to sew but they will last forever. I have a few more hides so should have enough to make 3-4 more depending on the size. Pictured along side the Shark is one of my Designer savers for Redtail and large falcon hoods.
