  1. Rocky mountain leather supply has lots of pebbled grain leather, just not quite that heavy. You might check them out.
  2. Jess Jones, yeah it should be fairly easy but I hate to reinvent the wheel if I can find a pattern. JLS, thanks for the links. Now if there was only a way to see a pic of each of the handbags they list. lol
  3. I think this was a Tandy pattern in the 70's. I was wondering if someone might have the pattern for sale or know where I could find it or one like it. Thanks.
  4. Thanks maxdaddy, I'd love to have it. I'll PM you an email address.
  5. Thanks for the input everyone. I searched the patterns in the leathercraft library and didn't find one exactly like the one I posted. Shouldn't be too hard to make a pattern though.
  6. My girlfriend wants me to make one of these for her. I seem to remember Tandy having something like this back in the day. Is my memory correct? Does anyone have a pattern for this type of purse that they would sell me?
  7. Sorry guys, I've been away from the forum for a while. Rccolt45, I used JLSLEATHER'S instruction sheet on making your own pattern and kinda figured it out as I went. thanks for the suggestions and input y'all. Levi
  8. I made a belt out of Tandy Latigo and lined it with mission grain pigskin. Never had any problems with it bleeding.
  9. Thanks, I'll keep that in mind for the next one. I used your Avenger DIY instructions to figure the stitch lines based on the width of the gun at various points. Not bad for the first time. Here's what it looks like now. JLS, thanks for your input.
  10. OK, that makes sense. I'll give that a shot. Thanks.
  11. Ok, I understand what you're saying about wetting and forming it a little but I'm a little confused with the rest of it. I don't know what you mean by cut the stitchin'. Once I wet and shape it I should put another stitch line closer to the gun, yes? This is the part that confuses me. Cut the existing edge off? Sorry, I'm a little slow on the uptake. Thanks for your input.
  12. Thanks bikermutt. It's actually a 2.5" Ruger Alaskan 44 Mag. It's a chunk.
