  1. Nice memories every time you use the wallet.
  2. Blue goes nicely with saddle tan..........
  3. My Al Stohlman how to make holsters book calls it a skirt holster. It's just a strap or "belt" sewn or riveted on. On the Eldorado rig I made it uses this style. I know even the "western" style 1911 holsters use the same proccess.
  4. There are plenty of long wallet patterns available on Etsy and online. Look at some YouTube videos a lot off free or cheap downloadable patterns.
  5. Nice simple clean looking case. Color looks nice and rich.
  6. I usually glue before/sew. On this I riveted then sewed. I hand sew don't have a machine.
  7. Any bags I've made it would be impossible to dye afterwords. I would dye and finish first. Only finishing done after sewing is edges. IMHO YMMV. I don't do a lot of bags. But I prefer a contesting stitch color.
  8. Saddle horn phone holder for a iPhone 7 plus with an Otter box case. The horn hole (don't know what else to call it) got a little off center somehow. W/C 7/8 oz drum dyed skirting in Chestnut. 1mm Tiger at about 6 spi.
  9. Nope it's natural veg tan. The phone camera kinda washed out the color.
  10. I tried out an experiment. I used the card pocket from 1 wallet pattern and a phone sleeve pattern I made up when first started with leather. Put the card pocket on each side changed the stitch to a side load for the phone instead of from the top. Left natural with just some carnuba cream on it. Blue Tiger .8 at about 8spi. Spent about 30 seconds burnishing the edges as didn't want them glass smooth. Also pic is with a phone and the leather is about 4 shades darker in person.
  11. G26 and G27 are EXACT same size externally. All Glock 9mm,.40,and .357 Sig are same width. Difference is in barrel and grip length. Also the .45 and 10mm Flicks are the same size. JLS has patterns for a lot of Flicks on his web site. I use the same holster for my G27 and my G19 in some cases.
  12. I'm subscribed to your YouTube.
  13. My brother asked me to make a bag for his wife for when there out riding the bike. It's 3oz Fiebings black with red Tiger .8 at about 8sp. I hate gussets cuz getting the length right still an issue for me. So I make long then trim. So sewing the handle on was the last step. Not very easy to access that way. Had to have the wife hold the bag along with the stitching pony.lol
  14. I second this. Jeff also is good at advise and answers to questions. He is direct and to the point so don't take offence.lol
  15. Found this at a "antique" market here in the Springs. It was labeled as a "vintage scraper/chopper" "Very sharp!". Since it was only $22 i got it. Its unmarked and not sharp.lol Slight crack in the handle but it's tight. Guess I will have to learn how to sharpen it and use one now.
