Every little cowboy needs a holster for his six-shooter!! Over time you might learn that we are country loving people... We dress it, (mostly my hubby and son), we listen to it, we love rodeos, horses, farms, ranches, on and on!! In fact, we both grew up in the country. Especially me being from cattle country, I used to ride horses daily. So naturally we wanted to pass it on to our kids.
First B-day. I made the cowspot cake!!
So anyway, on to the tutorial! I started with some scraps of cow print cotton canvas. As you can see I had to sew two pieces together for it to be big enough... I laid his play gun ON A FOLD and traced the shape I wanted on the WRONG side of the fabric.
I unfolded it, and BEFORE sewing the sides, I hemmed the top and bottom. It's easier that way.
Next I sewed the sides together and turned it right side out to make sure the gun fit how I wanted.I wanted to make it really cowboy-ish so I added some fringe :)
To make the belt loops, I measred my belt and cut my strips accordingly so they would be big enought to slip on the belt. Just fold and iron like so, and hand sew the loops on tucking under the raw edges.
AND WALA!! He's ready to cowboy up!!!
I also made the vest, and the cowboy pants.... The tute for that is RIGHT HERE.
