Lack of updates

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I have been spending most of my time either cutting, oiling or dyeing leather. I am currently in the process of making 4 of the Resident Evil Afterlife holster rigs like I made for Jen for Dragon*Con. This has been a fun project, but it is fairly time intensive, but the benefits are worth it. I hope to get to more regular updates again towards the end of the month.

First Leather Under the Needle

I was finally able to get some decent nylon thread yesterday that wouldn’t snap after a few stitches in my machine and try my hand at sewing some leather with the new machine. Here is the finished product. It is by no means perfect, as I hadn’t ever thought out the planning that needs to go into something like this, as leather is not like fabric in that make it inside out and fold it with the right side out etc. This is a bag that I made to be able to put my DSLR camera in when at a ren faire when I am in costume, as I generally don’t care for carrying a camera when in a costume of any sort.

My first holster

I was bored last night, so I got out some leather and tried my hand at making a simple holster for my Sig 229. Here is the result.

It isn’t the prettiest thing around, but it works really well. You have to start somewhere right?
