I couldn't see paying for Jedi pouches when I could make them myself. I looked around for patterns, but didn't find anything I loved. I did really like the ones made by the Galactic Outfitter, so I decided to see if I could make something similar. This is what I came up with.



I've considered CADing up the patterns I worked out, but the patterns won't do you any good unless you have a sewing machine that can sew leather. If not, I'd recommend buying from them, because hand stitching these would be crazy. Are the patterns something anyone would be interested in?

Also, I'm selling my first prototype of the tall pouch. Pretty good deal if you don't mind the ribs going up to the left. I'm a stickler, so I made a second one with the ribs going the screen accurate direction.

I made a pdf full scale pattern of the large pouch. How does one go about adding a pdf file to the forum? I could host it on my google drive for a while, but eventually it would go away and the link would break.

The patterns could work for those who want to use thicker leather and also without a sewing machine.
There's hand sewing tools that someone could use to pre punch the holes and and do the sewing.

Also the ribbing on the pouch could be done with soaking the leather prior and using a spudger to work in lines into the leather to create the ribbing. (If someone wanted to use a bit thicker leather.

Not to take anything away from your work. These look great!
Just adding a little more options.
Great job on the patterns!

Those turned out great!! Not many options out there for decent looking pouches for a good price. I also ended up making my own.



It took a couple trys but I got it. And functional, great for holding extra batteries for my lightsaber.
