  4. I know this gets asked periodically, but I can't find anything here on old posts, so here goes: Does anyone know of an off-the-beaten-path mold gun supplier? I'm specifically looking for a S/W 60LS - it's the Lady Smith in .357 J-frame (2.125" barrel). If not, have you ever successfully cut down or left the holster short using a longer gun mold? I can't find her on : Duncans Knifekits (Blue Guns,Cook's, HolsterMolds, MultiMolds or QLH) Bunkhouse Tools Boise Foundry or Rings. Let me know if you can help! With any luck, someone else will find a new supplier of their own on the thread!
  5. Free vintage pattern book: Le Cuir. Compositions Decoratives – author Jehan Raymond (published in 1908) pattern book has some wonderful and unique Art Nouveau designs for leather work - pocket cases and wallets, cigarette boxes, bindings, calendars, music portfolios etc. The descriptions are written in French. This is a PDF (240MB) on Google drive: A few of us are fortunate enough to own a hard copy of this treasure, I searched for 2 years to find my mine (and paid dearly for it). Now, because of its age; it was added to Public Domain in 2016. *This book is very rare, some copies are preserved and archived in some museums - MET. I hope you find these awesome patterns and illustrations useful. Big thanks to Letter T for condensing the PDF, Nuttish, Chirsash, and Buttermutt07 for testing the link on multiple platforms. P.S. Source files are in the Library of Congress - National Archives site. Enjoy, Deb
  6. I was going through some very olf bookmarks on my pc from about 2001, and visited bighousedaddy site, for the first time in a gazillion years. The heading is the tag that "Bighousedaddy hasd went to be with THE MASTER craftsman" Does anyone have any information on this stalwart of the business, I always liked his patterns and wondered if they were still available, and if so, where from and if they'd work on win10. Thanks Harry
  7. I need to sell these together. I do not have time to sell separately. Tools from 1960"s-70"s Unable to do this trade anymore. Happy to send photos upon request. $500 plus Shipping $25 Tandy Craftool 1.docx F901 Vintage Craftool.docx Thank you for looking
  8. I have purchased several PDF pattern just to see what happens. I find that many of them come in multiple parts that you are supposed to cut out, line up and glue onto a piece of cardboard. Most come without dimensions. Anyone have any suggestions for how to line up the patterns? Short of not purchasing these I was just wondering how folks make them work... There is always extra paper at the edge of the patterns or hash marks that just don't line up. Thoughts? Suggestions (besides just not buying them ever agin which I have thought of!! )? Thanks in advance

    The Power Of Creative Therapy

    The Power Of Creative Therapy! I've always had a lot of hobbies but discovered leathercraft during a difficult time in my life. It was extremely therapeutic as well as rewarding and helped me focus on what I was doing creatively rather than on the problems around me. Over the years I've discovered a lot of people with a similar experience as mine. We all need a healthy outlet that does not involve looking at a screen or being preoccupied with likes on social media. One good friend and successful leather artisan once shared with me that prior to getting involved with leathercraft she was losing an ongoing battle with depression. She had been on medication and therapy for a while, but in spite was getting worse. Then one day someone introduced her to leathercrafting and suggested she give it a try. She immediately took to it and her condition began to rapidly improve. Within a short amount of time, she was off her meds and living a healthy and productive lifestyle. Since then she's made a career out of her craft and has received multiple awards and honors for her work and contributions. Healthy creative expression is not only a very important part of who we are, I believe it's also food for our souls. Its a beautiful way to share with others some of our finer qualities rather than some of the chaos we're fed through the media everyday. You can't always take a vacation from stress in your life, but you can find opportunities to rest and recharge through creativity. There are also many reasons why I love to work with leather besides the fact that I find it relaxing and therapeutic. So, I don't want you to think that it's just something I do to chill out, it's also extremely rewarding... It's provided me with incredible opportunities to develop my talents into a profession and work with some of the most talented craftsmen in the world. I love the strong sense of community that exists within the trade and the support that the community shares with one another. Leather is also perhaps one of the most versatile materials in the world and its craft is as ancient as civilization itself. Leathercraft is a skill that just about anyone can learn and put to use in their lives, given the opportunity. Thanks, Chris Free Tutorials, printable leathercraft patterns, and articles can be found on my website at, My 1st workshop in Taiwan before starting the Fischer Workshops Youtube Channel

    Low cost Templates

    ,Just found this site on Etsy that has a large number of downloadable templates for bags and other items at in most cases about £5 or under. Downloaded template comes in both AO size and A4, and the one i have just downloaded, looks well thought out; and whilst it does not have instructions as such, the wording on each template is enough to show where it should go etc As most patterns will probably only be used once or twice, I don't think it matters much if pattern is printed on Paper/Card rather than the more expensive acrylic ones Link here
  12. **First thing: I'm so sorry about my English** Like my title i need patterns Ai file or Core file or maybe Photoshop file for all size of Watch Strap ! Thank you guy for reading !!
  13. Hi , all! Part of my plan for 2018 is to spend more time here (and less on Facebook!) sharing our passion for all things leather. So here is my first "share": Check out She designs handbags/purses for fabric but uses a lot of vinyl trim and I have made a lot of her patterns using thinner leathers that have been real stunners. I am finishing one this weekend that I will post pics of.

    Pilot Travel Bag

    So, I have done a few projects such as belts, wallets, dopp kits, and a duffle bag. I have settled on mine next major project and could use some guidance moving on to a more complex project (as I see it). I want to build a pilot bag like the one seen on Buffalo Jackson. I believe that I can get the basic shape, the pockets, the handles, and the strap right. What I am not sure about how to complete is the inner pockets for the laptop and tablet, the pocket that is accessible from the outside (making a hidden pocket), adding loops for pens, and the lining without showing all of the edging. I also still debating the welting. I made a dopp kit that the interior looks terrible because I didn't do a very good job on the inner seams and I don't want to repeat this mistake. Any advice is appreciated as I would like to work out a solid plan before I start building this bag. It must be able to fit in the overhead of an airplane as I will be flying frequently. I am also uncertain as to what thickness of leather would be best...2/3, 4/5? I am still debating hand sewing this or using that most aggravating sewing machine I got from Tippman....leaning more towards hand sewing to reduce blood pressure and cussing. I am not so good at pattern making but will try to put together something decent to post to the group as I work through this project. Looking for a little group think on this project to make it as good as I can and any help is greatly appreciated.

    How can I get these patterns ?

    Hello there , for a few days now I've been looking at these asian wallets ( , there's many Japanese books on them and whatnot but I don't read Japanese, I don't wanna deal with any of the shipping stuff and whatnot so do any of y'all know where I could find any books here in the US or just order off a more common site that have similar or patterns of the same style ? Maybe an ebook or in-store Thank y'all in advance! (:
  16. Hello Everyone; Well, it's been a while since I posted here but here I am again for a minute or two. As some of you already know, I've had to give up my lifelong hobby as a leather crafter due to some not so kind words from my doctors. I can no longer use my hands well enough to work the leather and I'm confined to a wheelchair most of the time now anyway. Which of course brings me to the subject matter. I have for sale a large lot of Leather working books and patterns. Here's a quick list with the retail cost of them now and what I'd like out of them. This would be a tremendously good deal for anyone just starting out and even those that could use a lot of patterns. Here goes......

  17. This may not be the right place for this post this but looking for thoughts on this aviator cap from this pattern It is just a mock up at the moment and needs some resizing to actually fit a head! and would need a little wet moulding on the seams to round them out. Is it looking about right I have spent so long looking at it I cant decide
  18. I wonder there are so many western floral designs about? they are very pretty,but I am hoping to some billiard related designs. I dont have much drawing ability and would like to find a pattern Icould trace on to the leather I am working with.this could bea new area for some one who can draw. please advise as to any resources where I might find such a pattern.many thanks

    Pattern Making

    Nothing wrong with using commercially available patterns, but likely much better to make your own. Using a ready-made pattern certainly good for the newcomer, since you can concentrate on learning the LEATHER. But at some point, most of us will find it more convenient to design our own -- whether that's to save the money spent on "so many" patterns, or to let you customize the work to your taste (or that of your customer). That said, here's a quick "thingy" that may help with that. This discussion concerns a folding case for a small notebook. I had in mind the little "field notes" pocket size notebooks when I wrote this, but it can be applied to other projects of various sizes. Once I receive the actual notebook, I'll likely put up a "ready to go" pattern for those who care to use it, but for now .. some of you who already use those books may want to create your own design... Much like that old saying, 'give a guy a fish, he's good til, dinner. teach a guyta fish, ya never see 'im agin' . or, something like that, right?

  22. I am looking for a copy of "Al & Ann Stohlmans Personal Patterns Portfolio Volumn 2" which contains patterns for mostly horses and some other ranch-type patterns. Does anyone have one you are willing to sell of know of a place where I could buy or at least get a look at some of the patterns. Thanks, Tobi

    Tips on pattern design

    Hi, everyone. Once again, bothering you in search of some wisdom. I'm about to start designing a camera bag using the basic design of an old USPS mail bag, adding some modifications to adapt that design to my needs and to change the look a little bit. Mainly the changes will involve a change in size (not as tall and a bit deeper from front to end) to acomodate a padded insert, add a couple of pockets under the flap and a couple of straps on the sides to attach/dettach another set of pockets at will, depending on my carrying needs for the day... it's a bit of a Frankenstein monster from several different ideas I've seen around. I plan on using chrome/veg tanned leather, 4-5 or 5-6 oz, the likes of a Dublin or Chromexcel, but with what I have at hand to buy here in Mexico... (BTW, do you have something to sher about Chahin leather? I might get a good deal from them but I'm still working that out). The design I liked the most to begin with is this one from Satchel & Page. Like I said, I'll be changing a lot of things, but the basic form and idea of this one filled my eye. For starters, I'll change the closing from a single buckle to a double strap, double D-ring fastening, since I found it easier and quicker. Also, I'll add a couple of sets of D-rings at the bottom to carry a blanket, or tripod or whatever that doesn't fit inside the bag. I'll keep the magazine pocket in the back because... well, you never know!! Second of all, I'll change the front face of the base bag to acomodate two pockets more or less to the style of the ONA Brixton, since I find those very handy for keeping my cameras accesories, film, lightmeters, pens, notebooks and other stuff. I love the gusset on this one, so I won't change a thing here (rivets and double seam). I'll just add a couple of straps sewn or riveted onto the gusset (towards the sides and top of the bag) as anchor points for a couple of dettachable pockets for storing lenses, cellphone, whatever... Now, on to the questions about designing this thing. I don't care too much if I miss my target size by 1/4 or 1/2 inch because of the joints. But, since there's going to be two layers of leather at the front and at the back, I was wondering if anyone in here would be kind enough to share some light as to how much I should compensate on the size of the outer layer to fit the one on the inside. Say, if the inner front piece is going to be 14 inches wide from one stitch line to the other, how much should the outer piece be? 1/8" - 1/"4 extra to each side? Like I said, I'll be using leather of about 4-5 or 5-6 oz for this project. Another doubt I have is how far should the stitch be from the edge of the leather. I will use waxed poly thread, 0.040 and I normally mark my stitch line at about 1/8" from the edge. But, since the stitches will be on the side, I have my doubts whether the fact that it's a turned bag with several layers would be too much of a load for such a small edge. One other topic I can't decide yet is whether to use piping or not. If I do it it would be by means of a single narrow strap of the same leather I use for the rest of the bag, showing the cross section of the leather (burnished and all) instead of folding it over itself. I understand piping is used to release some tension out of the bent joints of the project. Is this at least somewhat true? Anyway, I hope I made some sense with all this and to get some ideas as to how to skin this particular cat. Cheers, everybody!
  24. So I just got into leatherworking a week ago, and as usual I got too excited too quickly and ran into a problem. When I was buying leather I accidentally bought way to thick a leather for wallet making (the pattern I use requires .8-1.2, and instead have double or more the required thickness. I have almost two full hides and spent $140, so I'd like your opinion on what I should use it for? As a beginner, what are some good options. I made some earphone holders, and transit card holder but I'd like to make something more worth my time. Thanks everyone! David
  25. I will be teaching SADDLE CONSTRUCTION design and patterning, using concepts that can be applied to other areas of construction--- including holsters, knife sheaths, saddle bags, rifle scabbards, and various cases. There are only a few seats left for both classes; however there are several openings for just the first day. Day 1 is Lecture and Demonstration. I will teach you how to take a sketch of your concept / idea and translate it to a functional design, and then to usable patterns. If you can only attend the first day, you will still go away with all of the hand-outs, notes, and a plan and method. You should be able to go home and create your own patterns after only taking this class. Day 2 is Application---I will help you make your own patterns for your own tree. You will go home with patterns! Call me with questions. 307-272-1881.
