because I don't think this "class" will get off the ground as there does not appear to be much interest...

I am editing the first post to show my attempt...
and I do mean attempt
to make the round pouch that Luke had on his Bespin belt...

I am trying to take photos of both the piece and the tools as I go along so that (hopefully) it will help someone who would like to give leather working a try....

again..
I am making this up as I go along and have no clue if it will actually work..

First post updated with completed pouch...
it just doesn't look good...
and...
frankly...
I can't figure out how to fix it...

usually when I complete a prototype I come away with how to make it better "next time"...but..
not this time...
the achilles heel on this is that bottom piece....
where I do have one idea of how to do it better...I don't know that I can actually pull it off with what I have to work with..

Embarassed

another thing I intend to re-think is leather dyes...

I have been having issues with the Tandy Eco dyes...
I am thinking it might be time to abandon them and go to Fieblings dyes...

dunno...

The round pouch is for Luke Zintak in his quest for Bespin Luke...
it is also a learning process for me...

I do plan to make him a holster just like the one I made for my blaster...and ....also the other items on the belt...
BUT..I am waiting to do that till he actually has his blaster so that I can adjust for difference between his blaster construction and mine.

As you know...the Bespin Luke blaster I made (as shown in the first post) is still operational as an Airsoft...and in order to do that, I had to make some subtle changes in the blaster...
so...
since Luke is taking a different direction with his blaster...making another one just like my holster might not work as well....so I am waiting to make his holster till after he has completed his blaster....

I volunteered for this project to get some additional experience in leatherworking and seeing if I could pull things out of my butt....lol
I do have a LOT to learn about pouch making...



and...
because we desperately need face characters down here in Illinois...

Wink

I have had a couple people ask me to make holsters for them....and...lol...
I don't have any plans on "going into the business"...
I simply don't have enough time to do so many things that I get asked....

No...
I put the dates out there and there does not seem to be any interest or any firm commitment...other than yourself.

BUT...

There is a huge armor party going on in Crystal Lake IL...open to all...
it is posted at the MWG...
do you have access to those boards?

go here:

I am going to TRY to make that (pending funds for gas...lol..) and bring some of my "3 ring circus" of projects along with me...
