In the props, the pouches do appear to be the same height, just different widths.

Really happy to see your other pouches being made, I am starting on the narrow one as well.

Today my breather pouch will be completed, I'll post pictures after work.

I'm really excited about this!

And thank you so much for the DYI. (I didn't follow all in here, but the biggest insight I've got from here)

I made the narrower version of the pouch! What I made is not quite as narrow as the reference, so I will call it a "medium" version. The narrow one is much more like a cylinder, and so will probably need a new pattern.



Adaptations from the breather pattern: The lines are steeper on the reference, so I did the grooves at a pure 45 degree angle instead of the shallower one for the breather pouch. I cut out 1 3/4" (4.45 cm) from the middle line on the patterns. I had to re cut the "bottom" area of the pouch that gets turned in to be more "round" rather than flat at one edge (at the center). This was because when I used the hole marking tool, there were fewer lines on the face piece (with the channels in it) than the bottom, so it wouldn't line up, and rounding out the bottom seemed to do just the trick. Because there is one snap, the flap that goes over the top is a little different, but look at the original narrow pouch for inspiration.

My new generic Jedi was just approved yesterday with these pouches (and one more flat-style that I got from these forums)!

Awesome tutorial!! Thanks for taking the time to share. I am about to tackle this project. The plan is to make all 3 pouches I need for my Mace Windu costume. I'm having a bit of trouble finding a piece of the thick leather that is 3/8" thick. Where did you find yours? Also, did you dye the leather before you started? Thanks.

The thick leather was from a leather store, and it’s just the thickest stuff they usually have. You can often find scraps which is all you really need for this project. You dye the leather after it’s all done, lightly damp in it with a spray bottle mist, and then dye it. And use some Lexol leather conditioner and wipe it clean, but you don’t have to.

Using your patterns, I made this. Just an experiment. Turned out not bad IMO. The next one should be even better. No sewing involved. I have an injury to my wrist that makes that hard so I decided to trying Gorilla hot glue.

That does look good, impressive without sewing. I guess doing the "turn" seam on the bottom would be impossible with glue, so that is the only part that looks different to me. Nice work, it will look great on your belt.

Thank you very much. Well this weekend's experiment was a success!! I tried the bigger of my smaller pouches. And it's functional. I plan to keep spare batteries for my saber there.

Proud of this one. Now to make a smaller one and take another shot at the breather pouch.
