    So I've been staring at this leather for a while ,too thick for pouches too thin for a belt so I decided to make a slingshot holster. This is the first one I've done, if I would change anything I would use rivets next. The sinews nice but I wish it was black. It came out just the right size to fit all my Naturals and a few others.So here's some pics boys cheers. 20170319_113327.jpg 20170319_113348.jpg 20170319_113406.jpg 20170319_113416.jpg

    Great job! I like the sinew color contrast. Is that real or artificial sinew?

    I never worked with artificial, just real. Actually looks like it was real, just a tad thicker.

    I left it thick because of the wear. So I double Stitch it .if you look at the pic closely there's two styles of stitching

    Cool holster @Gangstergrips ! I like the contrast between the color of the sinew and the leather too!
