Is there a similar tutorial for Mexican Loop holsters? Or is there a full sized drawing for them, like the ones in the California Slim Jim tutorial?

God bless

Two places I can think of to direct you;

1 Will Ghormley, he sells pattern packs; http://www.willghormley-maker.com/OWC.html

2. Tandy on-line library. This pack, afair, has Mexican-loop patterns; https://www.leathercraftlibrary.com/product/1194/0206-belts-and-holster-patterns

Tandy use to sell other packs which were mostly by Will Ghormley

@MikeRock, I know this may be a little late, but there is a pinned thread just above this one, that does have a tutorial by Jim Simmons on making a Mexican Loop holster. Don’t be fooled by the photo on the cover of the pdf, as it covers both types of holsters.  I used this tutorial to create my first holster, and still use many of the techniques he teaches today. There is no pattern, but he walks you through creating your own. In my opinion this is something a holster maker should really know how to do anyway, as it allows you to customize things such as the holster’s cant, recurve, length, toe style,  etc. Here is a link:

 Hope this helps, even if it is a little late in coming.
