  1. How to make Holsters by Al Stohlman has a good pattern for shoulder holsters. Using Chicago screws as chiefjason suggests add versatility.
  2. Here's a version I came up with for a 4.25" 1911. make it a skosh longer, change up what you want. PDF file is at the bottom of the post. Good luck! I have made a similar version without the retaining strap. 1911 Commander Rohdesian Holster.pdf
  3. Look on YouTube for Horane - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsVt6cz7ruCl1IgogxMTaUQ, he posts good videos of the build and offers free pdf templates. There's a nice money clip, metal spring clip type, bifold wallet in his video's with a pattern. Good luck!
  4. When using linen thread I cut a stitch grove. Back in the day, I used a marking wheel and awl for the hand stitches down the stitch grove. Today, with the high tensile, tough thread, like Rita Tiger Thread, I'm not cutting a stitch grove, I mark a stitch line with my dividers and predominately use my diamond chisels to cut the stitch holes. Depending on the project, the old awl still has it's moments. No reason you couldn't cut a stitch grove to sink your stitches below the leather surface, and then use the diamond chisels to cut the stitching holes.
  5. Excellent work. I'll have to rethink my pattern for this type of holster. Very slick.
