    Hello - from Southern California

    Hello from San Diego
  2. SJ, basically that's exactly what I did. I took out the stitching along the bottom and up the sides about a third of the way and replaced the card slot with a full width bill/document slot. I did not hand stitch it but I was able to hit the same holes with my machine (Cowboy 3200)
  3. Thanks for the feed back Ferg, good advice.
  4. This is the best answer so far guys, well it made me laugh. I came up with a fixed that worked for me, I'll put it in the discount bin when I go vend at the swap meet. For now, here's wat I came up with and I even like it better this way.
  5. You know how it is, you get going on a project, you're making progress and you even like the color and the liner. Then you see it, there it is right there staring you in the face. It's a small mistake made at the worse time possible. You have a choice, you can cry, throw your coffee mug or worse your last ice cold beer. Or you can just call yourself a dummy and laugh it off. I'm laughing now but I sure I'm going to miss that coffee mug.

    Double mag holster/pouch

    That looks real nice, I don't know why I was thinking AR mags. I'm sure he'll be happy.
  7. Very nice, clean lines is always a classic look
  8. I slightly modified a pattern from @makerplace and put together this 6 slot. I still need more practice but it hold everything I carry. Thoughts, critiques, input always welcome. 4-5 0z outer, 3-4oz inner. Gum trag inside and tan coat outside, Sewn on CB3200 and Singer 111W155 for the liner. Sorry I should have straightened out the cards for the picture
  9. That's pretty nice for a first one. My first one is nailed to the wall of shame in my shop.

    Which locking method do you prefer

    #3 works for me, but I only back stitch 2 or 3 .
  11. I have a 11W155 and like SHark9 said the one you see in the CL add is highly modified definitely not worth the asking price. For that money I bought myself nice well maintained 111W155 and had enough left over to get the servo conversion. I'd say pass on that one and look around for one that will do belts (2 layers of 3-4) Wallets are no problem and some light weight holsters are even possible with care. Good luck
  12. I think the roses are amazing, please do not forget to share progress photos.

    Acrylic aquarella paint used on leather edges!

    It was not meant as a pat on the back, I'm amazed by your arrogance, your refusal to accept the gift of honest critique and your inability too see that you're skipping steps 1-5 before you start on the finish of your less than well made leather items. The truth is I have better looking projects in my scrap bucket. Good luck to you. I think you'll need it.
  14. I figured it out, I missed the check spring when rethreading he machine. Thanks in advance
