  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Thanks maxdaddy, I'd love to have it. I'll PM you an email address.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?

    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

    Looks really good. What weave is the chainmail?

    That looks pretty good.

    Latigo Dog Collar

    I made a belt out of Tandy Latigo and lined it with mission grain pigskin. Never had any problems with it bleeding.

    Holster advice

    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.

    OK, that makes sense. I'll give that a shot. Thanks.

    Holster advice

    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.

    Thanks bikermutt. It's actually a 2.5" Ruger Alaskan 44 Mag. It's a chunk.
  14. I made a chest holster using instructions that JLSLeather made available on his website for free. Thanks for that brother. I evidently cut it a little wide and I need some advice about which way I should go to fix my mistake. Should I trim the edge until it's closer to the stitch line or add another stitch line to kind of fill in the space? I also have to trim the safety strap
  15. I'm doing a 3 1/2" guitar strap and I need a Sheridan style design. I can't draw so I'm looking for one here. Does anyone have one they would like to sell? If so, please message me with the details. Thanks.
