  1. Does anyone have a pattern for a sail makers sewing palm? Chris
  2. I've been really inactive in the leatherwork arena lately so please forgive my not answering everyone's questions. As to the blade contacting the rivets, I actually got some delrin tubing and cut a really short piece that goes over the rivets like a washer, so the blade never touches the metal rivet. Chris
  3. Looks great. What kind of machine are you using to route those out? Chris
  4. I'd like to know more about how you do this. When I've tried it in the past the results weren't that great due to the leather being so difficult to work with. Do you soften the leather somehow to make it more workable? Are you using tattoo ink or dye? Chris
  5. Started making a slightly different version of this pattern last night, basically the same but instead of belt slots its intended to have loops and worn in the waistband. The only thing about the pattern that I'm going to change is move one stitch line closer to the trigger guard. I was going to attach the belt loops with snaps, but the snap posts are to short to go through all the layers of leather so I'm going to have to find another method. I wanted to use snaps so I could leave the loops on my belt if I wanted to remove the holster
  6. I was trying out a new tracing tool that I made this afternoon, so I used it to do an initial tracing of my Hi Point C9. I just finished drawing this pattern for a holster and thought I would share it with the group. I haven't made a holster from this pattern yet so please keep that in mind if you decide to use it. Make sure to print the file at actual size not scaled to fit. Chris Hi-Point C9 Pancake.pdf
  7. Very cool man! I really dig it! Chris
  8. Thanks for the ideas folks. I haven't been able to get any pis yet, but I'm thinking small pouches of some kind would be a good use for it. Chris
  9. I'll have to try and lay them out tomorrow to get a picture, but they range probably from 8 inches square up to maybe twice that. It was a 3 pound remnant pack. There are some smaller bits and pieces too. Chris
  10. Ive got a three pound bag of what appears to be splits, suede on one side, man made grain on the other, and dyed black, gray, and burgundy. Ive never worked with this stuff so I'm wondering what kind of projects would be a good use for it. Chris
  11. Very cool! I just borrowed a badge holder from a friend so I could work up some patterns. Where did you get your blank badge? That would be handy to have. Chris
  12. I think it looks good, and nobody starts out turning out perfect work, so don't be to hard on yourself. Chris
  13. I really like it, looks like it turned out perfect. Chris
