Recommended Posts

For my armor, I want to make my own E-11 Leather Holster. I stay in Malaysia and most of the material and tools are source locally.


Tools

Snap Setter Set

Leather Hole Punch 3mm 

Hobby Knives

Metal Metric ruler

Mallet

Hard Rubber/Cutting board

White colour pencil


Consumable

Leather Size 16"X16": I choosed a pre dyed black leather. As this was a pre dyed black leather, I will double up the holster strap with a brown undyed leather for ANH look.

Button Snap

Double sided rivet

Template

E-11 Blaster Leather Holster Template: I use TM template here

Procedure

 

1. Study the template for previous bulit. Here here

 

2. Print out the template in A3 size:I redraw the template in  Inkscape. Set up the paper to A3. During printing, I encountered problem because my printer's printable margin cannot print out the full lines. So i adjusted some part to middle a bit and print the template twice.

3. Check the dimension is correct

4.Cut out the template: I combine the template using stationary tape.

5.Trace the template on the leather. Identify which side is the inside and outside: With the piece that I have, I can make 2 holster. A spare in case I mess this one up.

6.Cut the template with sharp hobby knife. I change the blade each time I want to make a new cut.

For the stitching, I am going to send it to a leather shop nearby for machine stitching. I still not capable to do my own stitching yet.

 

 

To be continue.

Hey nice tutorial! 1 question how thick is your leather?

The leather I am using is 2mm. It is thinner than my other holster by Anovos. Anovos holster is closer to 5mm. Refer to below picture.

 

Left: Anovos holster. Right: My holster.

Wow that's a difference but does the 2mm also work?

From my understanding of the CRL, it will work. Any comment from more experienced trooper?
