Holster Patterns

Well, we are in the holster pattern thread :whistle: I got it covered within these walls - I'm good ta go.  Just thought maybe if some you boys 'n' gals was using PS or IL, might want a copy of this digital graph paper I use.  No matter... it's very basic (but useful) stuff that anybody could do (and maybe already did).

 

JLS, I just finished a training class on using Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator.  If you would be willing to share the graph paper still I would certainly appreciate it.  I thought that Illustrator might be useful for designing holsters, and other leather items.

Yep, you can  have this template. It's quite simple to use, simple to make in fact... I would hope that if somebody CHARGED YOU for a class that they taught you AT LEAST this!  I don't know how long or how many 'lessons' you did, but I've never had any "training" and I can do this, so I assume anybody can ;)

Now, if somebody can just explain ta me why .. if you want to rotate a feature, you use the 'edit' menu, but to rotate the whole drawing you use the "image' menu .... :ranting2:

!#%$!!@#! Software "upgrades"!

Everything seems to work just as it did before, but now the "button" you need to click looks different and is in a different spot. What was the point of that.. try to irritate the customer into using some OTHER software?@!

I assure you.. making regular changes to your $3-digit software is NOT an incentive to get me to buy your $4-digit software.

The stuff I learned was specifically geared toward the creation of logos, advertising materials and business cards.  I understand the frustration with the various commands and how they work.  It does not always seem intuitive.

I just upgraded or updated or whatever .. some other software for designing - not PS.  That button that looked like that in the top right of the screen now does exactly teh same thing it did before, but the button looks different and its in the top left of the screen.  You have to wonder what the point was ...

It'll be fine... just a bit of a time killer

Then you'll have no trouble following this.  Not that "smankey", but sometimes it's nice not to have to reinvent the wheel when somebody already did.

ETA Oh, those ' thingies' below were all done in PS

Well, it's Christmas after all :blush: 

Fits Glock 26 and 27 (and some say 33, though I have not personally witnessed that).

Well, @wayner apparently not coughing up the design, so I guess I'm going to rework that one.  Not a problem.. there was maybe something I could have done better than that version anyway :whistle:

OK I'll bite. When I try to download any of the patterns, "Pattern making theory", "About leather holsters" or "Pancake holster pattern instructions" from this page https://www.jlsleather.com/diy/pattern-making/gun-holster-design/ I get a pdf file.

But! When I try to download "Avenger holster pattern instructions" which is the one I am really after. I get this.

holsters_Avenger.jpg.8b0eae23370a054bd9091a62080dce4a.jpg

If I do a search for Avenger Instructions I get this Avenger_search.jpg.0ce26e9e50fe1fc2ae09868a179af355.jpg

Even with all javascript, including farcebook bandwidth and memory waster turned on. I get the same results after the ten  minutes the pages take to load. Am I missing a link somewhere? Or has this pdf been removed from the site. I realise that the pancake instructions will be similar but am sure there will be some differences.

@2Hill You will have to contact JLS directly to sort out the problems.  There are links on his site to email him or contact him.
